Ever since the 60-player battle royale party game Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout was released, there’s been a number of stories about the game potentially coming to the Switch and other platforms in the future.
While there have been some promising signs so far, it seems Mediatonic (the UK developer behind the game) is more focused “right now” on earning the trust of the Fall Guys community on PS4 and PC rather than making money off ports. Here’s what Fall Guys lead game designer, Joe Walsh, had to say during a recent stream hosted by Gary Whitta (the same guy who hosts the Animal Crossing – Animal Talking show).
Thanks to our sister site Pure Xbox for spotting and transcribing Walsh’s comments.
“Right now our real focus is on making the PlayStation and PC games as good as they possibly can be. We really have to build trust with the community now and make sure they believe that we can support this game and make it really good.
So it’s our job now to be like, hey community – we know what you want and we’re listening and we’re working as hard as we can to try and fix it, and for us to just say, ‘now we’re going to just focus on bringing it to more platforms’, it’s not the right thing to do at this point in development.
That will make us more money, but that’s not what we want to do right now. The focus is on building that relationship with the community.”
In an FAQ on the official Fall Guys website asking if there are plans for an “Xbox or Switch release”, Mediatonic said it would “love” to bring the game to other platforms further down the line and tells fans to let it know what it should release on next. This was followed by the discovery of Switch SDK support in the game’s files on Steam last week.
