Children of Morta Delayed on Switch
Developer Dead Mage and publisher 11 bit studios have announced that the Nintendo Switch version of Children of Morta has been pushed back. Previously set to launch digitally alongside the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions on October 15, 2019, the Nintendo Switch version will be released on November 20, 2019. The companies provided the following message:
To the players and our fans,
Spending 5 years creating a game is exhausting. Spending 5 years creating a game and then having to delay it — that’s just brutal — but when you’re aiming for excellence and you know it’s within your grasp, you just do it. Such is the case with Children of Morta on the Nintendo Switch. We still have a couple of kinks to work out and are pushing for quality over anything else. The community may forgive us for the delay, but forgiveness won’t come so easily if we release a game that’s not working perfectly. As delivering the best performance is our highest priority, we are simply delaying the game to November 20th to allow ourselves the time we need. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 releases are going as planned on the 15th of October.
At 11 bit studios, there is no space for compromise when it comes to quality. For players, it means a bit more of a wait. For us, a bit more hard work which we’re glad to do because, in the end, we all have the same goal — a fantastic game.

The game was launched digitally for PC in September 2019, with physical editions available to pre-order from Merge Games’ Signature Edition store and expected to ship towards the end of November.
