Astroneer still hasn't been officially announced for Switch by the dev team, but we know it's on the way, thanks to a Switch rating for the game. This trailer shows off new footage and talks about a Feb. 2019 release date, but that date pertains to the PC version specifically.

Astroneer rated for release on Switch

Explore and reshape distant worlds! Astroneer is set during a 25th century gold rush where players must explore the frontiers of outer space, risking their lives in harsh environments for the chance of striking it rich.

On this adventure, a player’s most useful tool is their ability to shape their world, altering the terrain and extracting valuable resources from planets, and moons. Resources can be traded or crafted into new tools, vehicles, and modules to create everything from massive industrial bases to mobile rover bases.

Reshape terrain as though it were made of Play-Doh.
Survive on and explore procedurally generated planets that can be entirely deformed and traversed.
Build vehicles and travel to new planets and moons.
Snap together components and objects to create custom vehicles and modules.
4 player online drop-in/drop-out co-op.

While not officially announced for Switch by the developer, it looks like Astroneer is a lock for Switch. The game has gotten a rating from the Brazilian ratings board, which has been spot-on with its ratings in the past.
