The developers of Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout announced that they are planning to add a crossplay feature to the Xbox and Nintendo Switch. Fans of the said platforms are still waiting for updates since the game is currently only available on the PlayStation 4 and PC. Even though the game is available on these two platforms, crossplay is not supported.
Recently, it was announced that a Fall Guys mobile version is currently under development in China. However, there is no official news on any other versions of the game to be in production. The game looks like it will fit naturally on both the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch as well as the upcoming Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 which are expected to release by the end of this year.
Fall Guys will receive a comprehensive update
Fall Guys’ developer also revealed new information on the game’s upcoming Season 2. However, Kate Starks’ interview with the developers resulted in more details about the future of Fall Guys. She posted some of the highlights of the interview on her Twitter account.

According to Stark, Fall Guys’ developers that next season’s battle pass will be free and their top priority right now is to deal with the rising count of cheaters in the game. In addition, they are also going to launch new custom servers, new accessibility options and are releasing official Fall Guys merchandise. They also confirmed that crossplay will be coming in the next updates.
Uncertain future for Switch and Xbox
During the interview, Stark asked if there is a possibility that the game will be coming to the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The game’s lead designer answered it with a short: “Maybe one day”. This vague answer isn’t what most fans wanted to hear since most of them can’t wait to get their hands on the game on their consoles. However, the answer was better than dodging or completely denying it, so fans can only hope for the better.
Fall Guys has been regarded as one of the most successful games this year on both Steam and Sony. Recently, the game gained another achievement as the most downloaded PlayStation Plus title of all time. It is great to know that crossplay is coming but PlayStation users might want to disable the feature since most cheaters are coming from Fall Guys’ PC version.
