Fans of the popular action role-playing game “Kingdom Come: Deliverance” found one more reason to be excited about 2021 when a Nintendo listing suggested the game is launching on the Switch console soon. However, Warhorse Studios have since responded to the reports confirming it has no plans to develop a port for the 2018 title.

‘Kingdom Come: Deliverance’ Nintendo listing was just a mistake

It all started when fans noticed that the official Nintendo Japan website listed “Kingdom Come: Deliverance” as one of the games scheduled to launch on Switch consoles this year. More specifically, the game’s Royal Edition was cited for a Feb. 18 release date along with “Silver 2425.”

It should be noted that the listing came from an official website and “Silver 2425’s” Nintendo Switch launch was already confirmed. It was then understandable that gaming fans quickly believed there will be a “Kingdom Come: Deliverance” Switch port.

That was until Warhorse Studios PR manager Tobi Stolz-Zwilling reacted to the supposed leak and clarified what the developer has planned for the game. “As much as I would love a #kingdomcomedeliverance version on Switch - unfortunately there is none planned at the moment,” he wrote on Twitter.

Is there hope for a ‘Kingdom Come: Deliverance’ Nintendo Switch port?

As of this writing, the Nintendo Japan website no longer lists “Kingdom Come: Deliverance” as a game to be released in 2021 on Switch consoles. It was interesting, though, how the title got there in the first place. Based on Stolz-Zwilling’s statement, it appears that the port is not even being worked on at the moment but he appears to be on board with that possibility.

Meanwhile, most fans replying to Warhorse’s statement appear to be fine with “Kingdom Come: Deliverance” not getting a Switch port. Some are questioning the portable console’s ability to run the game while others would prefer to get a sequel.

“Kingdom Come: Deliverance” is popular for its story that is set in the 15th century in the Kingdom of Bohemia, which is a part of what is now known as the Czech Republic. It features an open world environment and played in a first-person perspective. The game is currently available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
