Fall Guys Isn’t Hitting Xbox Or Switch This Year

Fall Guys is still not on Xbox or Switch half a year after the originally planned release of summer 2021. Mediatonic delayed the Switch and Xbox versions of Fall Guys back in April saying that it was "unfortunately just too soon.” Now they’re saying that it’ll be 2022 at the earliest.

"We know everyone’s excited about Fall Guy coming to Nintendo Switch and Xbox, with good reason,” wrote Mediatonic in Season 6’s blog update. “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."

Fall Guys would be the perfect Switch party game that might even be able to take on Mario Party, but it sounds like Mediatonic is keeping the game under wraps until they get everything right. That'd be couch co-op and Joy-Con integration if you asked me.

For the rest of us (that'd be PC and PlayStation), Fall Guys Season 6 has arrived with five new games, a brand new Fame Path, some great crossover costumes, and several new features for cross-platform progression between PS4 and Steam.

We tackled the new games and costumes in our previous coverage, so let's dive into this cross-progression business. Everything is getting tied to an Epic Games Account since Mediatonic is an Epic Games studio now, which means you'll have to create an Epic account if you haven't already. The plus side is you'll be able to actually use your Epic account name so there's no need to rely on the name generator anymore.

Mediatonic plans to include Epic Lobbies and Friends List support later in the season, so stay tuned for that too.
