Steep is Ubisoft’s skiing and snowboarding video game that launched for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One back in 2016.

The game was supposed to also reach the Nintendo Switch, but it seems there has been a change of plans and this will not happen anymore.

The game’s official Twitter account writes that the development for the Switch stopped in order to support the players who are on existing platforms.

“Hey @RJISAGAMER! 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. We’ll have more exciting news to share soon,” reads the post.

More than that, a rep from Ubisoft repeated this in a statement for Polygon just to highlight the clarity of their choice:

“The Steep team is 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. We’ll have more exciting news about the live game to share soon.”

Twitter feedback

On Twitter, someone told the company to remove the game from the website.

Twitter users were generally not happy to read such news. “So basically, we have decided to stop development on a game for a console that tons of people have been really wanting and looking forward to for a long time so that we could do some other stuff without telling anyone looking forward to the game. Thanks,” someone posted, being more than unhappy with the news.

“An (ex) Resetera insider said the game was canceled before they even showed the first Switchtrailer because Steep didn’t sell too well on the other platforms. Seems he was right,” another user wrote.
