The Nintendo Switch port for Pillars of Eternity II has been discontinued

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is the sequel to the original PoE released in 2015, a vintage RPG with an isometric perspective, similar to the classic Baldur’s Gate series. While the game ultimately undersold, according to Obsidian Entertainment director Josh Sawyer, the Golden Joystick award nominee also received plenty of praise for his writing. Unfortunately, the switch port will not see the light of day.

A Versus Evil employee announced the decision on their official Discord server. “You there! Unfortunately, after much deliberation, we have decided not to advance Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire for the Nintendo Switch,” the publisher wrote.

Versus Evil Head of Production James Lance spoke to Game Reactor at Gamescom ’19, where he mentioned that porting the PC version of Deadfire to the Switch console is no easy task.

“It’s a big game with great attention to detail and I’m saying how the leaves move on the trees, how water works, how spells work, how combat works. Every little nook has a bit of life, so it was a challenge, and rightly so.”

Against the evil faced a similar dilemma with their planned Nintendo Switch port for the original PoE, a game that grossed nearly $4 million on Kickstarter. Their decision to abandon the game left the port in a less than desirable state. The Nintendo Switch port for Pillars of Eternity II has been discontinued
