NBA 2K18's physical launch for Switch is behind schedule


The digital edition is still set for September

Take-Two hasn’t had much to show or even say about the Nintendo Switch version of NBA 2K18, and that silence has led some to understandably assume the worst about the port. I mean, just look at this barren landing page for the game. Not a video or screenshot in sight!

The digital Switch edition is still on track for September 19, just like the other versions, but the physical copy? That’s been pushed back to “fall 2017,” as disclosed today in Take-Two’s fiscal first quarter 2018 earnings report. The company didn’t provide an explanation for the delayed retail release.

NBA 2K isn’t my particular jam, but I do hope major publishers do right by Switch-owning sports fans.
