Wired Productions and KeokeN Interactive have confirmed that Deliver Us The Moon will no longer be ported to Nintendo Switch as development has been discontinued.
“It has been just over 6 weeks since we launched on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 – and we have been overwhelmed with the love, passion and positive feedback for the game shown by fans worldwide,” Wired Productions began in an update.
“We had planned to include Nintendo Switch in our release schedule. However, today we unfortunately bring news that we will no longer be releasing a Nintendo Switch version of Deliver Us The Moon.
“We have a duty to our players and to our teams, and after careful consideration, we have discontinued the development.
“The decision has been made based on a number of factors, not helped by the industry-wide stresses that have been felt by the Covid-19 pandemic, which has made every task just that little bit harder.
“We understand the disappointment this may cause and if you have preordered the game for Nintendo Switch, you can get in touch with your retailer to cancel this.
“Thank you for your patience and support – other missions have only just begun and we look forward to sharing news on where these rockets take us next…”
The Unreal Engine 4-powered game is set in an apocalyptic near-future where Earth’s resources have been depleted and humanity looks to the stars.
That soon saw multiple countries team up to establish the World Space Agency, which was tasked with solving the extreme energy crisis. Their solution was to colonise and exploit the Moon’s natural Helium-3 reserves to serve power to Earth’s flourishing population.
However, without warning communications with the Moon stopped and the energy source was lost. With Earth plunged into darkness and without power, years pass as the world’s governments come together to set out to re-establish the energy supply.
