Developer Mediatonic has announced that Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout for Xbox consoles has been delayed indefinitely and will no longer launch this summer.
The Fall Guys team explained that it’s been working on bringing cross-play to the game, and since Mediatonic was acquired by Epic Games, the studio now has “access to a whole host of new tools to enhance the experience.” Because of this, Mediatonic has realised that its previously announced summer 2021 release window is “unfortunately just too soon” for the team to include all the new additions they’re working on.
“While we want to launch on these platforms as quickly as possible, we believe the Switch and Xbox releases are really going to be worth waiting for, and we’re super grateful for your patience,” the post reads. “This delay gives our team some time to add features like crossplay, so when we add new platforms, players will be able to stumble in harmony with their pals, regardless of their platform of choice.”
Unfortunately, Mediatonic has not announced a new release window for Fall Guys but says it will share more at a later date.
