Fall Guys servers down: Matchmaking stalls as the devs prepare for the weekend

The Fall Guys servers down problem has returned as the game starts to head into its first weekend.

Players have reported problems with finding a match since the servers came back online alongside the fresh update to Fall Guys released earlier today. While developer Mediatonic intentionally took the Fall Guys servers down (specifically their matchmaking services) earlier this week to manage the server load, it hasn't made any announcements about taking such measures this time.

This is the most recent status update from the official Fall Guys server status Twitter account as of about 2:30 pm EDT. It looks like the developers are still getting things sorted out from the recent update and are currently focused on getting the situation stabilized.

Mediatonic took the Fall Guys servers down earlier today to implement some "optimizations and enhancements" to the game's backend, ideally to keep it stable throughout the weekend rush. Some players seem to still be able to connect and play matches, but GR's own Iain Wilson has gone several hours without managing to get into a game this afternoon.

With the Fall Guys servers down, you might as well spend your time strategizing for that next round of Egg Scramble.

And if you haven't gotten a chance to try it yourself yet, I'll leave you with this line from our Fall Guys review.

"Because defeat never feels crushing and you're only ever a few seconds from beginning anew with 59 other goofballs, the one-more-game urge is rarely so tantalizing as it is in Fall Guys."

We talked to Mediatonic about how it made "the perfect blend of chaos and skill" in our Fall Guys interview.
