In a forum post, Obsidian's social media manager announced that the story will continue in 2020 through DLC, while also issuing thank yous for all the support the game has received thus far. However, the reveal skimped on details, but promised they'd be "made available at a later date." The Outer Worlds is slated to arrive on the Nintendo Switch sometime in early 2020, so the DLC could possibly coincide with the port.
The Outer Worlds was incredibly well-received when it first launched in 2019. Players awoke from hibernation in the far reaches of the galaxy, decades after they were supposed to have arrived. Things have gone horribly wrong in the colonies in the interim, and players embark on a mission to find a way to save what remains of humanity. The Outer Worlds was somewhat smaller than more recent RPGs, only clocking about 25 -30 hours of content. That size will get a little bigger with the two upcoming expansions, Peril on Gorgon, which releases September 9th, 2020, and Murder on Eridanos coming in 2021. 2b1af7f3a8
