What happens with Switch players when dedicated servers go down?

Recommended Posts

When Dead by Daylight was released for Switch, it was placed on dedicated servers even though the servers weren't publicly released yet. The devs at Behaviour said it was because the Switch is not capable of operating a P2P for a game of this type.

So, considering this game is at "the tail end of the game's life cycle," does this mean when Friday the 13th's Dedicated Servers finally get pulled, the Switch version will only be capable of offline bots and challenges?

P2p is what private matches are. Essentially every game will be like playing a private match but instead of the match being exclusive to friends, it will be full of randoms. When the host quits, the game ends for everyone. As of now, there is no "host" in public lobby's. The red triangle just shows who picks the maps. When we lose the public servers, the red triangle will be the actual host. So if the host is a counselor and quits the game, the game will end for everyone. Unlike when Jason quits, the entire lobby will be kicked to the main menu. You will then have to search again for another lobby.

I can't image what horrible fps a host would get on switch. It's bad enough on PS4 to the point of being almost unplayable
