Free-to-play crossplay online team 3 shooter rogue society ended support for his switch Version on June 20th. In its announcement of the upcoming shutdown, developer Hi-Rez Studios called “significant technical and procedural challenges” when working on the Switch version.

Launched on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC in 2020, rogue society is a tactical character shooter apparently inspired by games like over watch, Rainbow Six SiegeAnd counterstrike. When I played it in 2020 I found it mostly okay albeit somewhat generic and forgetful. However, over the last three years, the game has built a sizable community of players across different platforms. But now, The game’s switch port is killed because Hi-Rez promises “better support & focus” on the other platforms as well as more updates, more often.
In an April 11 blog published on the game’s official websiteHi-Rez explained that “after much discussion, deliberation, and conversation,” the team made the “difficult decision” to end support for the Switch version of rogue society.
We understand the impact this decision could have on our community, and want to assure you that we have worked diligently in the past to find workarounds for various Switch-specific issues. Unfortunately, significant technical and procedural challenges prevent us from continuing to support this platform and we believe this is the best choice to do so rogue society.
Starting Tuesday, Switch players will no longer be able to make real money purchases through the in-game store, but will still be able to purchase items in the store using previously accumulated Rogue Bucks currency. Hi-Rez encourages players to link their Switch account to their Hi-Rez account so they can continue playing on other platforms. There are no refunds for Switch players.
While some were surprised by the news, there always seemed to be a possibility that the Switch version of rogue society could one day shut down due to the aging hardware of Nintendo’s hybrid machine.
In 2021, Hi-Rez added 6v6 PvP modes to the game, but not on the Switch. At the time the studio claimed this was to ensure Switch players were experiencing the “best possible quality”. Gamers theorized that the Switch couldn’t handle more demanding modes and features, and some worried that the other versions of the game would be held back by the Nintendo port.
rogue society Fans are glad they won’t put up with Switch kids anymore
As you might expect rogue society Gamers who primarily played on Switch were upset and saddened by the news. However there many players also cheered The demise of this port with many complain The change player were the worst of which to team up with in games. Some suggested it was because of that Switch players were mostly children or younger players who were not so skilled and could cause teams to lose because of their lack of experience.
“No more Switch players exit the demo after 3 rounds with 0 damage and 0 kills,” one player tweeted. “No more Switch players in my lobbies?!” another person tweeted.
Of course, it was also likely that many of those players were just looking for excuses as to why they lost, and a few bad Switch players became their excuse. And while I don’t doubt that there are plenty of kids playing a free-to-play shooter on Switch, I do want to point out that kids can also play games on Xbox, PC, or PS5, so you’re not entirely sure prevent them from invading your games even when Switch is out of the picture. Forgiveness.
