Fall Guys will be Delayed for Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S

Fall Guys Xbox Series

If you are a fan of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, the PC and PS4 platform battle royale from Mediatonic, you may be temporarily disappointed if you were hoping to play the title on your Switch, Xbox One, or Series X|S. The developer Mediatonic confirmed that it will not be coming out in summer 2021 as originally planned.

In March 2021, Mediatonic was acquired by Epic Games, giving them a ton of resources to the indie studio, setting them up for future success. The Fall Guys Team released a short blog post on Friday to break the news about the delay.

Fall Guys Official Statement

With so many new opportunities now in our hands, we’ve realised that our previously announced Summer 2021 Switch and Xbox release schedule is unfortunately just too soon for us to include all of the tasty new features we’re working on.

While we want to launch on these platforms as quickly as possible, we believe the Switch and Xbox releases are really going to be worth waiting for and we’re super grateful for your patience. This delay gives our team some time to add features like crossplay, so when we add new platforms, players will be able to stumble in harmony with their pals, regardless of their platform of choice.

They are working hard to get it right

This ultimately is a good move for Fall Guys in my opinion as the title is already incredible and the fans deserve a polished launch across all devices and the most refined crossplay experience possible. Once they do launch Fall Guys across Xbox one, Xbox Series X/S and Switch, the user base is going to explode as the title is an incredible amount of fun for players of all ages. In this tough world we live in, everyone can use a good laugh. Fall guys look gorgeous utilizing the unity engine and scored a respectable 8/10 from Metacritic, Destructoid, and IGN. This game has a bright future ahead!
