Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout became an instant sensation when it launched for PS4 and PC last year, and earlier this year, Mediatonic confirmed that the battle royale title would be coming to both the Nintendo Switch and Xbox consoles in Summer 2021. Soon afterward, both versions were delayed, and since then, there have been no updates on when the game will arrive for the platforms.
As it turns out, it won’t be in 2021. In an update published on the official Fall Guys website talking about the launch of the game’s sixth season, Mediatonic confirmed that the game’s Switch, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One versions won’t be arriving until 2022, but provided assurances that those versions are one of the studio’s top development priorities. Contrary to what some rumours are saying though, the Switch and Xbox launch isn’t tied to the launch of season 6.
“We know everyone’s excited about Fall Guys coming to Nintendo Switch and Xbox, with good reason,” Mediatonic wrote. “There’s been a lot of speculation on social media connecting these new console releases to the Season 6 launch and we want to clarify that that’s not the case so no one’s left confused looking for the game on these platforms. Thank you for being patient with us, it’s one of our top priorities in active development and we can’t wait to share more details with you in 2022.”
With no details on when in 2022 the game will arrive on additional consoles, or when exactly we can expect details on that, for now, all we can do is wait. Those who’re already playing Fall Guys on PlayStation and PC, however, can dive into season 6, which is now live.
