Firaxis Games and 2K have announced that Marvel’s Midnight Suns, last year’s critically acclaimed comic book card-based tactics game, is no longer coming to Switch.
Announcing the news along with the game’s final DLC trailer, publisher 2K confirmed on their official website (via Twitter) that while the game will come digitally to PS4 and Xbox One on May 11 — and that all four DLCs will be available on day one — “a Nintendo Switch version of Marvel’s Midnight Suns is no longer planned.” No reason was given for the Switch port’s cancellation.
This is undoubtedly a bite for Marvel fans who have been waiting to play the strategy game, from the team behind the XCOM and Civilization series. The game was reviewed very well across the board, praising the gameplay and genre-centric superhero game, however, sister site Push Square stated that the game was apparently a “commercial flop”.
Announced at Gamescom 2021 for all platforms, Marvel’s Midnight Suns brings together the Midnight Sons, Avengers, X-Men, and Runaways with DLC characters like Deadpool, Morbius, and Venom added at a later date. Storm will be added in the final part of the DLC, which will be called “Blood Storm”.
Not at all the news we were hoping for! We’ll have to swap our cards and find something else to fill the card-based superhero slot we have on the Switch. Tell us what you think of this ad in the comments below.
