Lots of gamers are waiting for Fall Guys to be released on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. What is the current status of an Xbox version of the party game?

The website showed that: The website of the Fall Guys developers, Mediatonic, offers an area with the most frequently asked questions and answers (FAQ). The plan for a release on Xbox or Nintendo Switch said:
At launch, Fall Guys are only available on PS4 and Steam. We would like to bring the game to other platforms later. Let us know on Twitter and Discord which platforms you would like a release next. We’d love to see how big the demand is.
However, this answer no longer exists on the Fall Guys FAQ website.
On August 12th, the official Fall Guys account wrote on Twitter that the focus was initially on PC and PS4. In the future, however, they want a release on other platforms.
Getting lots of questions about platforms – We've answered in a few places but once more for everyone:
👌 We're focusing on PC & PS4 right now
👌 We'd love to release on more platforms in future
🔥 I personally love the Skyrim memes, I hope we release on smart fridges too

Officially, there are still few details about a release of Fall Guys on Xbox One or Xbox Series X / S. But data miners have probably already found more. And that’s good news if you wait for it to be released.
What do leaks say to Fall Guys?
A Data miner to Xbox shows: On Twitter, Data miner the tiny shows that there is apparently good news from the players who are waiting for an Xbox release.

This is shown by a data miner for the switch: An interesting clue was also found for the switch in the Fall Guys code. Twitter user OatmealDome explains: “Interestingly, Fall Guys has the ‘NintendoSDKPlugin.dll’ file in the game files on Steam. These files would have existed since the first version of Fall Guys. But this does not confirm a release.
Interestingly, Fall Guys has the "NintendoSDKPlugin.dll" file in its game files on Steam.
This means that the Fall Guys Unity project has support for the Nintendo Switch's SDK (not necessarily that it *will* come to Switch). It's also been there since the first version.

But such leaks should be treated with caution. The discovery of the data miners does not confirm the release date of Fall Guys on Xbox One or Nintendo Switch.
