Reproduction link

https://gitlab.com/jryancasas/nuxtjs-2.13-issue-with-nuxt-generate

Steps to reproduce

Create a new nuxt project, either using nuxt-edge@2.13, or by cloning the repo provided. Then:

# install dependencies
$ yarn install

# build for production (target: server by default)
$ yarn nuxt build

# Try to nuxt generate without rebuilding
$ yarn nuxt generate --no-build --port 7777

What is expected ?

Nuxt should be able to generate the website as it does on 2.12

What is actually happening?

i Modern bundles are detected. Modern mode (server) is enabled now.                                                                                                                  19:30:33
