It was originally listed on the eShop last week

Kingdom Come: Deliverance released in early 2022 and took the RPG community by storm.

Although it was divisive for some players, the game's open-ended nature and medieval setting really put it on the map, so much so that it was talked about for months after launch: far from the 'buzz weekly” of many modern titles. But since then, it has been dormant on PC, PS4, and Xbox One platforms. People hoped that the situation would change earlier this week, but it turns out, as expected, that is not the case.



As spotted by several sleuths, Kingdom Come: Deliverance has been listed on the Switch's Nintendo eShop page, for a February 18 release via the "Royal Edition". It was pretty accurate! But as is the case with many eShop listings (who does that?!), that was a mistake.

Speaking on Twitter, Warhorse Studios PR manager Tobi Stolz-Zwilling emphatically told us that wasn't happening: "As much as I would love a #kingdomcomedeliverance release on Switch - sadly none is currently planned. We're looking to find out who was so ambitious to think differently but at the moment... meh meh meeeeh..... Sorry guys. " 

With rumors of a "Switch Pro" model swirling around for a while now, I can see Stolz-Zwilling being very cautious about the news that a Switch port is even in the works: if there is one. For the moment, this is not the case!
