Pillars of Eternity 2’s creators, Versus Evil, have released some terrible news about the Nintendo Switch adaptation of the game.
One of the devs claimed in the Versus Evil Discord chatroom that the firm would no longer be working on the project, albeit they did not specify why. This comes after the studio said last year that they had halted working on updates for the Nintendo Switch version of the original game, Pillars of Eternity, citing the Nintendo Switch hardware as the reason.
Hey there! Unfortunately, after much deliberation, we have decided not to move forward with Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire for the Nintendo Switch.
About Pillars of Eternity 2

Sad that it not coming but well it is what it is.
