Are Microsoft the Fall Guys here?

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout could be the battle royale game of the summer. Mediatonic’s upcoming multiplayer title looks like it will be a hoot to play, with up to 60 players battling it out to be crowned the victory in its many game types.

So far, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has been confirmed to be releasing on PlayStation 4 and PC, but there’s been no word of a possible Xbox One port. The game is set to launch on Aug. 4, so there isn’t much time left for an Xbox One version to be announced. So, will it be arriving on Microsoft’s console sometime soon?

The simple answer is no, it won’t be. Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is only getting released on PC — via Steam — and Sony’s home console. Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout isn’t available to preorder on the Microsoft Store, and there’s nothing to suggest it will be coming to Xbox One in the future.

It seems strange that Mediatonic wouldn’t make Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout available on Xbox One. The company isn’t one of Sony’s first-party studios, the game isn’t being published by Sony, and Mediatonic has developed games for the Xbox line of consoles in the past.

Fable FortuneFoul Play, and Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess have all been released on Xbox consoles, while Mediatonic developed Gears Pop!, the mobile spin-off of Microsoft’s Gears of War franchise, in 2018 for iOS and Android. It was published by Xbox Game Studios — then Microsoft Game Studios — so there hasn’t been a public fallout between the two that would stop Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout being ported to Xbox One.

It’s possible that Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is a timed exclusive on PS4, which would stop it from coming to Xbox One for the time being. Right now, however, it won’t be available to buy for Microsoft’s console. If you want to get your fun fight on, you’ll have to do so on PC or PS4 instead.
