Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is one of the hottest games right now and Xbox gamers want to know if they can play it on their console. It’s unusual for a game to release on a couple of platforms and not on Xbox One, so it’s certainly not usual to wonder what’s going on here then. So let’s take a look at whether Fall Guys is coming to Xbox and if not, why not.


Is Fall Guys on Xbox One (or Xbox Series X)?

It’s not very often that this is the case, but no, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is not coming to Xbox One or Xbox Series X. The game is currently only available on Steam and PlayStation 4. This is certainly a surprising moment for Xbox owners, as Fall Guys isn’t a Sony first-party title like God of War, The Last of Us, or even Spider-Man.

Xbox players want Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout on their console. It certainly would be the perfect Game Pass title.

While Fall Guys might not be available on Xbox now, and there are no official plans to bring it to Xbox in the works, the support page might give you a bit of hope. Answering the question of an Xbox and Switch release, the FAQ has the following response:

To start with, Fall Guys will only be available on PS4 and Steam. 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 - we'd love to see how much demand there is!

The team over at Mediatonic are certainly aware of the appeal for release on more platforms. While there’s no guarantee it will happen, interested parties can at least express their desire on Twitter and Discord.

As for why Fall Guys isn’t on Xbox right now, it could be any number of reasons. The developers may have wanted to limit development time. Mediatonic could have a deal for console exclusivity with Sony. Only those working on the game know the reason why it’s not on Xbox at launch.

For those who have access to multiple platforms, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is now available on Steam and PlayStation 4, and is even available at no extra cost for those with a PS+ subscription. Xbox One players will just have to wait and see if Mediatonic releases Fall Guys on Xbox.
