Ubisoft has stopped development on Steep's Switch port



I guess that's another way of saying the game is cancelled? If development has been stopped, I doubt Ubisoft is going to pick it up again at some point. I think we all knew this would be the case, but at least now we have a confirmation.

Thanks to Sligeach_eire and Dakhilfor the heads up!

At least they've finally admitted what we've all known for some time.

The game was as good as vapourware, not so much as a screenshot was ever shown of this running on Switch, no trailer, no release date, absolutely nothing. And I wouldn't be surprised if we're having a similar conversation about Dragon Quest XI in 6 months to a years time.

It's not a surprise for steep, but just yesterday yuji horii teased a reveal of the switch version for dragon quest xi around tokyo game show

I would be very surprised is DQ-XI on Switch suffers the same fate.

First of all, DQ-XI is relatively new while Steep was four months old when the Switch was released.
Secondly, DQ-XI is not nearly as reliant on graphics or on-line as Steep appears to be.
Third, DQ-XI is not on Xbox but is already on a Nintendo platform (3DS) in Japan, so no sudden exclusivity.
Finally, we know about the porting process (from PS4) for Switch. And we should know more after TGS.

But I will not be relieved until it is released.
