If some studios are in a hurry to bring their latest creations to Switch, the little guys at Media Molecule seem unwilling to hurry to make Fall Guys such a multiplatform title as the others.
Players who hoped soon to try the joys of the most colorful Battle Royale will (again) have to take their troubles patiently: as the Fallen Guys begin their sixth season of festivities and rebounds, Mediatonic announced there is little news: the Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | S versions promised for “sooner rather than later” just aren’t coming … anytime soon.
It’s the fault of the cross-wound
Initially expected for the summer of 2021, the Switch and Xbox versions had finally been postponed so that the developers, just bought by the giant Epic Games, can focus on adding new features, starting with cross-play. . In a new blog post, Mediatonic therefore asks players for a new deadline:
The arrival of cross-platform progression between the PlayStation consoles and the PC is going to require testing and a bit of learning on our part, as we want to make sure that we can provide the best possible experience for gamers, no matter what. which platform they prefer to play on. This is an important step to then take Fall Guys to other media.
We know everyone is eagerly awaiting the arrival of Fall Guy on Nintendo Switch and Xbox, for good reason. There has been a lot of speculation on social media that hinted that the launch of Season 6 would coincide with these new releases, and we want to make it clear that this is not the case, so no one is confused thinking they will find Fall. Guys on these platforms. Thank you for your patience, we look forward to sharing more details with you in 2022.
In view of the low number of days we have left to spend before the arrival of the 2022 calendar year, the announcement will probably not surprise many people, but it seems that it is always better by saying it. If fans of random punishments can already enjoy Season 6 of Fall Guys on PC and PS4, others will have to wait, at least until 2022.
