Posted on 19 hours ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 2 Comments | 0 Likes
For awhile we had hoped that Redout would finally come to Switch this month. GameStop went as far as to list it for July 25 in one of its weekly ads. Unfortunately, July 25 is almost upon us, and that date is looking extremely unlikely.
