    Not surprised. Seems like AAA games have a lot of trouble running on Switch. Hell, some indie titles are having performance problems on the platform.

    Probably bit off more than they can chew trying to port the game with limited resources and audience. Seemed inevitable.

    This news doesn't shock me. Despite Ubisoft probably being the best third-party developer to actively support the Switch, none of their AAA titles have made the Switch.

    How well did it perform on the other consoles ?
    I still think it would have been a nice addition to the Switch library...bummer that they could realize it.

    Maybe we get a new 1080 next year *believe*
    Well it was no Saints Row 3DS.... xD

    Yeah no surprise. Thought it was well known since months, weird that they waited this long to confirm it in a reply on twitter.

    Edit:
    Post history... When you jump on the first post just to post that, it's pretty obvious why and how.

    Now that this game has been officially cancelled, I can state that no one was looking forward to it anyway and the lack of Steep on the Switch is no great loss. I can say this now that it isn't coming anymore.

    Never got why this of all games was chosen for a Switch port. They should've done Sout Park instead, that even runs on the same engine as Mario + Rabbids.

    Snake Pass had iffy performance on PS4, what gives?

    I was really ready to pay full price for such a game on Switch. I loved the Beta and hold onto downloading the game on PC in favor of the announced Switch version. Well it's 70% off on Steam.
     
  25. Yeah all those “Steep on Switch” hype threads on here look pretty embarrassing now

    Shame, not that I was still expecting it but I was mildly interested in this when it was announced.
    South Park is already on the Switch I think?
    And this was probably just Ubisoft testing the waters, trying to see what genres of games would appeal to the Switch crowd. Can't blame them considering how tricky this question has been for third party publishers on Nintendo platforms in the past.
     
  29. Is the game even good?

    I feel so out of the loop when it comes to gaming anymore.

    "You guys looking forward to Twanger Eternal Pro? Can't wait to see what the folks over at Spitting Spoon have come up with this time."

    What? Who? I have no idea what Steep is (was?).

    Yeah, it is. Could've been on the platform earlier though if Ubi would've chosen this title instead of Steep as a port, imo. If they wanted to test the waters, there's other stuff where a test might be more rational.

    This is now nothing but a waste of their own resources, sadly.

    Yeah i know that it's on the system and Stick of Truth coming, but as i said above, it's more that they might've done a more timely release for both games if not wasting resources on Steep. ^^

    Also it's cheap and easy to port to switch so this game getting canned had everything to do with Ubisoft not having enough funds to port it and nothing to do whats so ever difficulty of getting it to run on Switch hardware.

    IT was a strange announcement from the start, an always online game on a hybrid console, and said game was never particularly popular or well received.
    Now if it was World of the Division that would have been exciting, imagine chibified agents slaughtering chibified rioters, deranged firemen and pmcs

    Can you stop being so defensive about your favorite console? Are you not aware of the power difference between the switch and the other two? Its a perfectly reasonable hypothesis to have, and it doesnt mean people are attacking the switch just to be mean.

  48. The Switch isn't my favorite console. All these damn assumptions, hahahahahahahaha. Yes, I am aware of the power difference, no shit, but the person's initial post was utterly full of shit and he got called out for it. It's pretty obvious.
