Is Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout Coming to Xbox or Switch?

by Lucas White

Fall Guys has taken the gaming world by storm, with its pitch-perfect combination of battle royale gameplay structure and Takeshi’s Castle-style slapstick humor. Fall Guys has been such a dramatic, instant success that the game had to undergo emergency server maintenance within its first week, and it’s more popular on Steam than even the new Horizon Zero Dawn port. That game can’t catch a break! But you may be wondering if Fall Guys is coming to your console of choice if you don’t play on PC or PS4.

Is Fall Guys Coming to Xbox or Switch?

Fall Guys is a small, visually simple game, which from a pedestrian point of view suggests porting it to even the Nintendo Switch could be a reasonable expectation. But considering that Fall Guys launched as a PlayStation Plus offering on PS4, some gamers are worried that Fall Guys is out as a platform exclusive. Luckily that doesn’t necessarily seem to be the case, although there are currently no concrete plans to launch Fall Guys on other consoles.

This is addressed on the official Fall Guys support website, in one of the FAQ inquiries. The question asks if Fall Guys is coming to the Xbox or Switch, and the answer is a resounding, “maybe!” Check out the full statement below:

“To start with, Fall Guys will only be available on PS4 and Steam. We’d love to bring the game to other platforms further down the line. Please let us know on Twitter and Discord which platforms you’d like us to release on next – we’d love to see how much demand there is!”

So while there’s nothing to rely on yet, it does seem that there isn’t anything preventing Fall Guys from coming to other platforms. Fall Guys is clearly a smaller project, and while Devolver Digital is a sizable publisher, the team running the game likely has its hands full making sure the initial release goes smoothly for a while. Perhaps once the kinks are all smoothed out, and if Fall Guys maintains its viral momentum, we’ll be hearing about new ports before you know it.

Are you loving Fall Guys, but withsing you could have it in your hands with the Nintendo Switch? Or are you an Xbox owner who really wants to get in on the fun? Or maybe you’re an achievement hunter and you just want to double dip. Let us know what your Fall Guys situation is over on the Prima Games Facebook and Twitter channels!
