Asmodee Digital, the publisher of Catan on Switch, has announced some very unfortunately news. On August 4th, 2022, online multiplayer for Catan will be disabled. According to Asmodee, this is a direct consequence of GameSparks’ servers being shutdown. GameSparks is an external service by Amazon which is essential for the online multiplayer in Catan.

While that’s definitely a huge bummer, there is a tiny silver lining. Anyone who hasn’t picked up Catan on Switch yet will be able to do so at a cheaper price. Asmodee is going to drop the price from $20 to $15 due to the online multiplayer situation, but as you might guess, those who already own the game are out of luck.
