Fall Guys Dev Threatening To Delete Team Yellow

The yellow team will be deleted if a tweet gets one million retweets.


Update: It seems like this entire situation may have been a joke as the Fall Guys account just tweeted that "you're all on Team Yellow" after reaching one million followers. Maybe the possibility of a world without Team Yellow was never within our reach

Original Story: Fall Guys' infamous Team Yellow could be getting the axe, according to Mediatonic. The official account behind the game said that they would remove the color from team games if the tweet below gets one million retweets.

This situation started as a joke earlier in the week but has grown into something real. "It was a joke...but...if the tweet gets to 1 million retweets I feel like we kind of have to do it? One million retweets would make it the 19th most retweeted tweet in the entire history of Twitter," the account tweeted on August 18. "You can't argue with that, can you?"

Team Yellow has been the subject of scrutiny since Fall Guys launched on August 4. Players have said that they always lose when playing Fall Ball, Egg Scramble, or any other team game where their little player has a golden tint. Mediatonic's internal data says otherwise.

"We checked the stats and Team Yellow is just as good as winning as everyone else," Fall Guys lead game designer Joe Walsh told GameSpot last week. The studio did say it'd keep an eye on the growing meme and that has apparently led to this challenge.

The tweet stands at nearly 180,000 retweets right now, which is a long way from one million.

A popular meme has grown out of the Team Yellow craze. Players have been saying that they purposefully sabotage their squad when they end up on Team Yellow in order to keep the joke going. This is another impressive showing from the Fall Guys social media team--they've had little trouble keeping the game in the public eye.
