Back in April 2021, Mediatonic officially announced the delay of the Switch and Xbox versions of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, and today they provided a bit of an update that may be disappointing to fans looking forward to the Switch port. Confirmation today states that there will be more information to share in 2022, but Mediatonic claims that the Switch version is “one of our top priorities in active development”.
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout was originally planned for a Summer 2021 launch on Nintendo 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” and more.
Check out the trailer for a refresher:
