Fall Guys isn't going anywhere. While the battle royale game isn't quite the sensation it was in summer 2020, Epic Games (the company behind Fortnite and Unreal Engine) acquired Fall Guys developer Mediatonic in early March 2021. That means that we're likely to see even more resources go into the hit elimination game.
What's on the horizon? The game's fourth season is coming and it looks to be the most thematically appealing yet. Fall Guys is trading in its Season 3 winter wonderland for some futuristic vibes in Season 4. Here's what to expect from Season 4 and how Epic Games buying the Fall Guys developer might affect it.
