Fall Guys delayed on Xbox and Switch, but cross-play is coming

Mediatonic has delayed the release of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout on Xbox One and Switch.

According to the studio, the previously announced summer 2021 Switch and Xbox One release for Fall Guys is "just too soon" to include all of the "tasty new features" being worked on.

One of the new features is cross-play. The delay will give the team time to add the feature so that when the game comes out on Switch and Xbox One, everyone will be able to play together regardless of platform.

A new release window for the Switch and Xbox One versions wasn't provided.

"As you probably know, Mediatonic recently became part of the Epic Games family," reads the official notice. "This is something we're super thrilled about, as it now gives our team access to a whole host of new tools to enhance the experience of those who are down with the Crown; from the Blunderdome vets to the first-time stumblers, no matter where you play.

"Since day one, we've been dreaming and scheming about ways to make the game as awesome as it possibly can be. There's a bunch of additions and features we've long felt could elevate our beans to the next level that just haven't been possible… yet."

In the meantime, Fall Guys will keep rolling out new Seasonal content releases, fresh Shows, Costumes, and Rounds.

The Season 4.5 update is just around the corner and will feature two new Rounds and new fashions as part of Season 4.
