It’s official: Fall Guys is retiring. The popular battle royale game will be shutting down on May 4, 2022.
The news was announced today by developer Mediatonic, who said that the decision to retire Fall Guys was “an incredibly tough one to make”.
“We have absolutely loved every minute of working on Fall Guys and it has been an amazing journey getting the game to where it is today,” the studio said in a statement. “We want to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to everyone who has played Fall Guys and supported us over the past year.”
Mediatonic also said that it will be working on “one final season of content” for Fall Guys, which will be released later this year.
“We will be announcing more details about this soon,” the studio said. “We want to go out with a bang and give everyone the send-off that Fall Guys deserves.”
Fall Guys was released in August 2020 and quickly became one of the most popular games on Steam. The game’s success led to a number of high-profile partnerships, including a crossover with the popular Netflix show Stranger Things.
Despite its popularity, Fall Guys has been plagued by a number of technical issues, which has led to some players calling for the game to be retired.
It’s unclear what will happen to Fall Guys after it shuts down. Mediatonic says that it will be “exploring options” for the game, but it’s possible that Fall Guys could be removed from digital storefronts such as Steam.
What is happening to Fall Guys
fall guys retiring update 2022
As the world’s most popular battle royale game, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has seen its fair share of changes since it first released in 2020. But one constant has been the game’s retirement update, which has been a part of the game since day one.
Now, it seems that the retirement update could finally be on its way out. In a recent post on the official Fall Guys Twitter account, the developers announced that the retirement update will be removed in the game’s next major update.
This means that, after two years of being a part of Fall Guys, the retirement update will finally be gone. While the update has been a controversial one, there’s no doubt that it’s had a major impact on the game and its community.
So, what exactly is the retirement update? And why is it being removed? Here’s everything you need to know.
What is the retirement update?
The retirement update is a game mode that was added to Fall Guys in 2020. The update introduced a new game type called “Retirement”, which is a last-man-standing battle royale mode.
In Retirement, players start with a set number of lives. Once a player runs out of lives, they are eliminated from the match. The last player standing is the winner.
The retirement update was controversial from the start. Many players felt that the mode was too similar to other battle royale games, and that it didn’t fit with the tone of Fall Guys.
As a result, the mode was not well-received by the community. However, the developers decided to keep the mode in the game, and it has been a part of Fall Guys ever since.
Why is the retirement update being removed?
The developers have not given a specific reason for why the retirement update is being removed. However, they have said that the mode was not popular with the community, and that it was time for it to go.
This is likely the main reason for the removal of the update. The mode was not well-liked by the community, and it seems that the developers have finally decided to listen to the players and remove it.
When will the retirement update be removed?
The retirement update will be removed in the game’s next major update. The update is currently in development, and it is expected to release sometime in 2021.
What will replace the retirement update?
The developers have not announced what will replace the retirement update. However, they have said that they have “big plans” for the game’s next major update.
This suggests that we can expect to see some major changes and additions in the next update. We will have to wait and see what the developers have in store for us.
In the meantime, you can check out the full list of changes and additions that are coming in the next update. The update is currently in development, and it is expected to release sometime in 2021.
