Rogue Company to end Switch service on June 20th, 2023
Rogue Company is going out of business
Hi-Rez Studios has announced that Rogue Company will no longer be playable on Switch after June 20th, 2023. The developer has made this decision due to not being able to dedicate enough time or manpower to making sure the Switch version ran at a level that they felt was appropriate. Along with this, all in-game purchases made with real money will end today.
Hi-Rez has released a lengthy statement on the decision to kill Rogue Company on Switch, and you can read it in full below.
After a lot of discussion, thought, and conversations across our team, we’ve made the difficult decision for Rogue Company to end support for our Nintendo Switch version, with our final date of support being June 20th. This choice wasn’t made easily or without concern for our community, however we realized that the performance of our Switch port was not up to our standards, and we were unable to provide the level of support our players deserve.t. This shift allows us to provide players on other platforms better support & focus for their specific issues, as well as deliver updates with more flexibility and frequency whenever needed.
As of April 11th, in game purchases for real money will no longer be available and Nintendo eShop purchases will turn off as soon as possible. If you’re a Switch player and wish to continue playing at any point in the future, we highly recommend utilizing Hi-Rez account linking to pick up your progress where you left off on another platform.

We understand the impact this decision may have on our community and would like to assure you that we have worked diligently to find workarounds for various Switch-specific issues in the past. Unfortunately, significant technical and process challenges prevent us from continuing support for this platform, and we believe this is the best choice for Rogue Company.
