Devel­op­er Medi­a­ton­ic has announced that the Nin­ten­do Switch and Xbox ver­sions of Fall Guys will now be releas­ing this sum­mer. How­ev­er, cross-play is now a con­firmed fea­ture that’s com­ing down the road.

We’ve real­ized 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,” stat­ed the stu­dio in a blog post.

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,” the state­ment went on to say. “This delay gives our team some time to add fea­tures like cross-play, so when we add new plat­forms, play­ers will be able to stum­ble in har­mo­ny with their pals, regard­less of their plat­form of choice.”

While these two ver­sion of Fall Guys were delayed, Medi­a­ton­ic said they will con­tin­ue to expand devel­op­ment into deliv­er­ing “top-notch future content.”

Fall Guys will keep rolling out new Sea­son­al con­tent releas­es, fresh Shows, Cos­tumes, Rounds and all the oth­er deli­cious things you know and love. The rapid­ly approach­ing Sea­son 4.5 update is no excep­tion, with both a fiendish new Round and a funky fresh Final head­ing your way, plus deli­cious Fall fash­ion for your Sea­son 4 wardrobe,” the stu­dio said.

No new spe­cif­ic (or soft) release date was giv­en for Switch and Xbox Series versions.

Co-founder and CEO of Medi­a­ton­ic, Dave Bai­ley, believes the team has only “scratched the sur­face” of what’s pos­si­ble for the game.
