The Switch release of Gang Beasts has been pushed back, but thankfully only slightly. It’s now planned for October 12. The previous release date was tomorrow, October 7.

Gang Beasts may eventually land on Switch, judging by new comments from Gang Beasts creator Boneloaf. Studio co-founder James Brown told GamesIndustry in a recent interview: “We get asked for the Switch and we are talking about it but there are certain things behind the scenes that we need to do – like optimising the characters – in order to hit that platform.”

Boneloaf has started discussions with Nintendo in hopes of obtaining dev kits. Brown also purchased a Switch to see if the controllers would be a match with Gang Beasts.
