Ubisoft’s Steep was one of the titles first announced for the Nintendo Switch, way back even before the release of the console, alongside launch titles Mario Oddessy and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been canceled for Nintendo’s portable home hybrid.

The cancellation of Steep on Switch came to light after a fan asked the status of the game:

“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. Ubisoft said.

This comes not too long after Ubisoft actually confirmed that the game was still coming to Switch.

I was quite excited for Steep as it seemed unlike any other Switch title. Are you saddened by this cancelation? Was your Nintendo Switch waiting to go off piste?

What could “We’ll have more exciting news to share soon.” mean for Switch owners? Could this news be for the Switch or one of Ubisoft’s preferred consoles? Roll on the inevitable 1080 HD collection re-release! Please, Nintendo!
