No Break Games' Human Fall Flat was an instant hit back in 2016 when it first launched, offering light-hearted platforming that's designed to make you burst out laughing.

Shifting over 50 million copies to date, it's currently the tenth best-selling game of all time, surpassing triple-A titles like Animal Crossing: New Horizons, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and even Mario Kart Wii.

As a result, there's lots of excitement and expectations for the sequel, which is being published by Devolver Digital.

While a 2025 release date was set, that's now been changed. The devs have opted to delay the game to ensure it's of the best possible quality at launch.

Human Fall Flat 2 release delayed until 2026

During its latest annual financial report, publisher Devolver Digital confirmed that Human Fall Flat 2 will be delayed until 2026.

"Human Fall Flat 2, the anticipated sequel to the global hit, will not now be released in 2025... We remain very excited about this title which we believe will set us up for an even stronger 2026."

With the devs making it clear that the sequel will be aiming to be "bigger, better and clumsier" than the original, they've certainly got their work cut out.

Alongside better mechanics, Human Fall Flat 2 will feature "brand new levels, customisable characters, and even wilder physics-based fun."

To ensure the next game lives up to the success of the first title, No Brake Games clearly needs a little more time than first expected.

Devolver and the devs are looking to craft the ultimate "slapstick" experience, and while waiting a little longer will be a pain for long-term fans, it'll hopefully pay dividends when it finally launches.

In the meantime, there's still plenty of wild shenanigans to get up to in the original game, which has built up an impressive amount of content over the years with 15 DLCs. Either way, have we just confirmed our first big game of 2026?
