Gone Home on Switch Delayed to September

Can't go home yet.

Last week, upon Gone Home's five year anniversary celebrations, it was announced that the surprise hit would be making its way to a new platform: Nintendo Switch. The turnaround was planned to be a quick one, with a release date set for August 23, 2018. Today, it's been delayed to September 6 in North America and Europe, according to its publisher Annapurna Interactive.

While it's only a slight delay, it is a close call from its intended release date of tomorrow. Annapurna also promised in a tweet that it might have some "additional news to share" in the future as well concerning Gone Home. The original Gone Home was self-published by Fullbright Company on PC, and published by Majesco Entertainment for its PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports. Annapurna is handling its Switch release.

With the news teased by Annapurna, could Fullbright's follow-up Tacoma be headed to Switch as well under the new publisher? Only time will tell. In the meantime, be sure to check out our recent retrospective of Gone Home's lingering legacy, and how it inspired players and game developers across the world in its short five-span lifespan so far.
