Steep’s Road to Olympics DLC is Prioritized Over the Nintendo Switch Port
According to Steep's Game Director, the snow-sports title will be expanding on PC, PS4, and Xbox One before being introduced on Switch.
Little has been heard about the Nintendo Switch version of the latest and greatest snow sports game, Steep, and chances are we won’t be hearing about it for some time. According to Game Director Arnaud Ragot, the current focus on development is on the E3-revealed DLC Steep: Road to the Olympics.
In an interview with YouTuber Nerd Report. Ragot was asked about the current status of the Nintendo Switch version of the game. And while he was more than happy to reaffirm their commitment to the console, both his demeanor and words made ti clear that it was not the top priority:
Yes, [the Nintendo Switch port of Steep is] still planned, it’s still something we have in our mind and we are focusing on. But today our focus is really on releasing the expansion, and we will come to Switch after.
What does this translate to? At the very least, Road to the Olympics will be coming to the PC, PS4, and Xbox One versions of Steep on December 5, 2017. In that sense, we can only presume that the Nintendo Switch version will come after that point.
Steep was first revealed in 2016, and was one of Ubisoft’s first announced projects for the fledgling Nintendo Switch. And while the game was announced for Switch in January 2017, little has been mentioned about the game — especially when compared to other highly publicized Ubisoft titles like Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. It also hasn’t been mentioned whether the DLC will be included in the Nintendo Switch version of the game.
Steep is currently available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with the Road to the Olympics DLC coming December 5, 2017. Check out the NerdReport interview below for more details about the upcoming expansion:
