Paladins ending Switch support: Here is everything you need to know
As you might have already heard, Paladins will no longer be supported on Nintendo Switch after the release of the Midnight Masquerade update in late June. In a recent letter to its community, the developers explained that they made the difficult decision to end support for the game on the platform. The reason behind this decision was that the performance of the game on its Switch port was not meeting their or the community’s standards. What this essentially means is that Paladins’ reception on the Switch platform isn’t enough to continue its support on it. Moreover, it was not able to sustain its player base as efficiently as it did on the other platforms. Therefore, there was no choice left but to let go of the platform all at once.
The developers also stated that they spent countless hours working on platform-specific problems, and despite their best efforts, they were unable to provide support at the level their community deserves. This statement shows that the developers care enough about the community to not let them go through a bad experience from their side.
Moreover, this shift from the Nintendo Switch will lower their burden and it will also allow them to better focus on the other platforms Paladins is available on such as PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. The developers also stated that they will have more flexibility in how they deliver updates to players on these platforms. So, if you are someone who loves Paladins despite its removal from Nintendo Switch, you can still play it on the various platforms that it is already available on.
The developers also assured the community that this decision was not made lightly. It was made to ensure that Paladins can continue to improve and provide all players with a good experience moving forward. They understand that this announcement may disappoint some players, but they feel that this is the best path forward for the game.
In conclusion, Paladins will no longer be supported on Nintendo Switch after the release of the Midnight Masquerade update in late June. On this note, we hope you will still be able to enjoy Paladins on other platforms on which the developers will continue to give support.
