Fall Guys dev confirms Switch version won’t be ready until 2022
At the end of April, Mediatonic delayed the Switch version of Fall Guys to an unspecified date. Some had hoped that we’d be seeing it land on the console along with Season 6, but unfortunately, that won’t be happening.
Mediatonic confirmed today that it will have more information to share in 2022 about the Switch version of Fall Guys. That means the delay will indeed stretch beyond this year. Mediatonic said that the Switch version is “one of our top priorities in active development”.
Fall Guys was previously planned for a Summer 2021 launch on Switch after it was announced in a February 2021 Nintendo Direct. Mediatonic explained that the extra time would allow the team to “add features like crossplay”.
