That's shocking Nintendo can't do this properly.

I don’t believe that’s what the article actually said. I just read a retraction that said the idea that work on the Switch Pro was stopped “due to technical problems” was a mis-translation.

I guess nothing lasts forever

It was both issues with porting the Switch OS and power consumption. Nvidia created the chip for Nintendos needs but it seems Nintendo is trying to cut corners.

Apparently the original article doesn’t mention a Switch Pro at all though, but rather talks about a successor to the Switch which hasn’t even entered full development yet.

I’ll bet they shelved the Switch Pro and decided to start work on the Switch successor following the PS5 specs announcement.

This is what it sounds like to me, not a Switch revision but a Switch successor. Nintendo (other companies, too, presumably) usually starts work on their next-gen hardware not long after the current one comes out, so it makes more sense to me that it would be that.
