The release of Fall Guys on Switch and Xbox has been postponed

Tech Highlights:

  • Fall Guys for the Switch and Xbox, which was intended to be released last summer, has been pushed back again again, with a new release date set for 2022.

  • (Pocket-lint) – Fall Guys season 6: Party Spectacular has arrived, but Microsoft and Nintendo’s invitations appear to have been misplaced in the mail.

The information comes from a blog post on Mediatonic, which states: “”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 is left confused looking for the game on these platforms,” it continues. Thank you for your patience; it’s one of our top objectives in active development, and we can’t wait to tell you more in 2022.”

The new update brings new levels and obstacles as you might expect. In addition, it unlocks cross-platform progression for all players with Epic games accounts, very handy for those who like to switch between Playstation and PC gaming.

Sad news for would-be players on those platforms, but for Playstation and PC users things are looking up, as season 6 brings a bunch of new content to check out.

There are also new costumes based on Jin Sakai from Ghost of Tsushima available to unlock. As well as limited-time events with more prizes to unlock, the first being a costume from Playstation favourite Sackboy.

Fall Guys developer Mediatonic has confirmed that the game’s delayed Nintendo Switch and Xbox versions won’t arrive before the end of the year.

These editions were originally due in the summer, but in April were pushed back to an undefined date – and we’ve not heard much since. As for when they will arrive, those details will have to wait for 2022.

Mediatonic acknowledged the wait in a blog post detailing the launch of Fall Guys’ sixth season, Party Spectacular, which is out now. It welcomes Sackboy to the game, as well as cross-platform progression between PlayStation 4 and Steam when using the same Epic Games sign-in. “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.
