Private Division announced today that The Outer World for Switch has been delayed from its original March 6 release date to an unannounced date.
Per the developer, the reason for the delay is due to the Corona Virus outbreak that is impacting the team working on the port. However, with the delay comes with good news. Instead of releasing a boxed game that has a digital code where players can redeem, Private Division will now release a physical version on the cartridge.
