    Steep for Switch officially cancelled by Ubisoft

    If you were planning on taking the plunge down snowy mountains on your Switch, it looks like you’ll just have to stick to shield surfing on BotW. That is because Ubisoft quietly and painlessly killed Steep for Switch. In a response tweet to a fan asking about the progress on the Switch port, Ubisoft had this to say:

    We are wholly dedicated to supporting the live game, and made the decision to stop Steep development on the Nintendo Switch platform to focus on bringing new live content and challenges to Steep players instead.


    The game released in 2016, and then in January of 2017 it was officially revealed for Switch, along with it’s DLC. That all now goes out the window with this cancellation. I find it pretty disappointing. I wasn’t so much interested in the game, but I was wanting to see how much it would push the Switch graphically.

    First off, where have you been, Cloud? You're supposed to be helping us save the forums.

    Secondly, I'm not really surprised. A while back we heard some murmuring that they were having a rough time getting it to work on the Switch.

    And yeah, Sorry if anyone was looking forward to playing this game on Switch.

    It should have been a launch title. It's way too late for it to come out now.

    You're right. I think the only reason anyone even cared was because we were just coming out of the Wii U era, where we never got any mainstream multiplats. We were ravenous wolves who would eat up any multiplat we were thrown. But now we live in a different era, where game companies actually put their games on the Switch. We don't care about Steep anymore.

    They should cancel every game in development because Nintendo is doomed.

    Anyone that wants their Steep fix, just play Go Vacation and go to the Snow Resort.

    Hoping they bring it back for Tokyo 2020, with it being their home country and all.

    Put this picture here just to add extra credibility to anything I say.
