Fall Guys developer Mediatonic wants to bring the whimsical battle royale game to more platforms and add cross-play support for “all the different platforms.”
CEO and co-founder Dave Bailey told GI.biz that while Mediatonic is keeping its expansion plans under wraps for now, the aim is to bring Fall Guys to more platforms … eventually.
“We haven’t said much about the roadmap for this, but what we can say is we want this to reach as many people as possible,” he said. “We want it to come to every major platform, and we’re working hard to achieve that.”
Recent speculation suggested that Fall Guys was headed to Xbox Game Pass, but publisher Devolver and Microsoft itself shot down these rumors immediately. Still, fans are hoping to see the game on Xbox, along with Switch, sometime down the road, and Bailey’s comments do track with the idea that Fall Guys will be on other platforms at some point in the future.
Fall Guys is coming to another platform, mobile devices–but only in China.
Bailey also said he hopes to bring cross-play to Fall Guys on all platforms over time. “We want to come to all the different platforms, and hopefully connect those platforms so people can play together. If we do that right, that can be a superpower for other ambitions around original games and that publishing business, too. It’s really propelled everything forward by quite a bit,” he said.
And speaking about Fall Guys in general, Bailey said the team has only “just scratched the surface” of what’s possible for the battle royale title. The original pitch for the game was to create the “greatest game show on Earth,” and Mediatonic plans to deliver on that ambition.
“When you think about it in that way, there’s a million different ways we can take this and I hope people will see that come through in future,” Bailey said.
Next up for Fall Guys is the Season 3.5 update, which introduces a new level, along with Sonic and Godzilla costumes.
