Developer Mediatonic and publisher Devolver Digital released multiplayer party game Fall Guys on PlayStation 4 and Steam on Aug. 4, and it is outrageously, explosively popular. The PC servers outright crashed on several occasions from too many players, prompting jokes from The Hard Times, and the fact that the game is currently free on PlayStation Plus only makes it that much easier to try out. But Mediatonic doesn’t plan to keep the game exclusive to PlayStation 4 and PC forever. Nintendo Switch could eventually be in the cards.
A page at the Mediatonic support website, in response to a question about a potential Fall Guys release on Xbox and Nintendo Switch, states: “We’d love to bring the game to other platforms further down the line. Please let us know on Twitter and Discord which platforms you’d like us to release on next.”
Considering Fall Guys‘ instant success — and presuming it can be sustained to a degree — it seems like it would just be leaving money on the table not to add Xbox and Switch at some point. In fact, the controls are so simple (Running, jumping, and diving through obstacles courses is mostly all the game is.) that it could probably even receive a mobile version of some kind. And while cross-play is not an option yet, it is on the agenda.
To emphasize how popular Fall Guys actually is — I’ve been playing it on Steam. Not only do I almost never play multiplayer games, but I also seldom ever play PC games in general. Mediatonic and Devolver Digital must be laughing their way to the bank right now.
