One of the first games announced for the Nintendo Switch was a port of the snowboarding game Steep. Ubisoft has consistently insisted that the game was still in development for the Switch, but today the official Twitter account confirmed what many had feared – the game is no longer in development. No word on exactly what went wrong or why Ubisoft couldn’t get the game to work properly on the Switch, but it’s an unfortunate turn of events for those looking forward to playing it on the go.
Hey @RJISAGAMER! We are wholly dedicated to supporting the live game, and made the decision to stop Steep development on the Nintendo Switch platform to focus on bringing new live content and challenges to Steep players instead. We’ll have more exciting news to share soon.
