“Right now our real focus is on making the PlayStation and PC games as good as they possibly can be,” says lead game designer Joe Walsh.
Mediatonic’s Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is currently only on PC and PS4, but in spite of only being on those two platforms, it’s making waves in the industry. The game has seen immense success on both, and given all the buzz it’s generation, there’s no shortage of Nintendo Switch and Xbox One players who’re chomping at the bit to get their hands on it as well.
And while the developers have previously talked about the possibility of bringing Fall Guys to other platforms, it seems that’s not going to happen in the immediate future. Speaking during a recent stream hosted by Gary Whitta (transcribed by Pure Xbox), lead game designer Joe Walsh said that for now, Mediatonic are focused on building up a relationship with the Fall Guys community by ensuring that the game is the best it can be on the platforms it’s currently on.
“Right now our real focus is on making the PlayStation and PC games as good as they possibly can be,” Walsh said. “We really have to build trust with the community now and make sure they believe that we can support this game and make it really good.
“So it’s our job now to be like, hey community – we know what you want and we’re listening and we’re working as hard as we can to try and fix it, and for us to just say, ‘now we’re going to just focus on bringing it to more platforms’, it’s not the right thing to do at this point in development.”
He added: “That will make us more money, but that’s not what we want to do right now. The focus is on building that relationship with the community.”
