The Elder Scrolls: Blades fans awaiting the mobile game's release on the Nintendo Switch will need to wait a tad longer. The game has been delayed to an early 2020 release. Previously, the Blades port was set for Fall 2019.

The delay came as a result of a myriad of new updates coming to Blades, such as PVP and the ability to create Guilds. Bethesda had this to say in their blog :

We know how eager our players are to dive into Blades on the Nintendo Switch and we’ve been hard at work to make it happen. Unfortunately, amidst all the other changes we’re making to Blades, we’ve had to delay our Switch release until early 2020. We can’t wait until you can begin your quest in Blades on the Switch, and we’re confident this additional time will let us deliver the polished gameplay our fans deserve. We deeply appreciate your patience! As we’ve mentioned in a previous Town Hall, PvP matches will be cross-platform between mobile versions and the Switch version when it releases.

If you'd rather not wait for the Nintendo Switch release, The Elder Scrolls: Blades is available now on Android and iOS. Stay tuned to RPGFan as we learn more about the game's release schedule!
