Fall Guys should have split-screen. At least, that's what a vast majority of it's playerbase thinks. But is local play being developed? And if not, will they ever introduce split-screen into Fall Guys?
Fall Guys should have been invented many years sooner. It's such a fantastically simple concept: just make Takeshi's Castle into a multiplayer game. Of course, the developers shouldn't have stopped there, and that might explain why the game hasn't lived up to its initial hype. With so many post-release efforts focused on new cosmetics, they weren't thinking about essential quality of life features that Fall Guys needed.
One of the biggest features that fans have been asking for is split-screen, of course. So, what is the state of split-screen in Fall Guys right now, two years after release, and will it ever be developed?
How Can You Play Fall Guys In Split-Screen?
Unfortunately, you cannot play Fall Guys in split-screen on any of the available platforms. This is just absurd, of course, as Fall Guys seems almost custom-built to be split-screen. It's the perfect game for that kind of fun, but sadly, Epic haven't introduced this feature yet.
Fans have been pointing this out for 2 years now:

Apparently, Epic have been making far too much money from Fall Guy crossovers with Sonic to care about adding free features. But is that ever going to change? Is split-screen Fall Guys even in development?
Whether you can play locally with a mate or not, why not start by learning the basics first:
Will Fall Guys Ever Have Split-Screen?
It's unlikely that Epic will ever make split-screen for Fall Guys, and they've never issued a statement suggesting they will. You'll see a lot of places online claiming that "it could happen in the future!" or "split-screen hasn't been ruled out", but don't listen to these lies. We went through all the press-releases from the dev team, and there's never been a single message from them that suggests they're even looking into the possibility of split-screen Fall Guys.
This is a game that relies on selling cosmetics to make money. And it's entirely free-to-play. Now, nobody would buy more cosmetics to use for local play, they would buy them to flex online against 59 players. So the unfortunate answer here is quite obvious: no, Fall Guys will probably never have split-screen. Sorry.
