In what can easily be regarded as one of the biggest blunders any video game company can ever make, Mediatonic has accidentally leaked the source code of the popular title ‘Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout’ publicly on Steam through its 4.5 patch update.
This massive blunder was initially pointed out by Reddit user u/darklinkpower, who proceeded to reveal his findings in a Reddit post.
He explained, “Today the 4.5 season update of the game launched and earlier when I was checking the game directory I saw this weird directory named ‘FallGuys_client_BackUpThisFolder_ButDontShipItWithYourGame’. A pretty suspicious name if you ask me.”
He then took a peek at the folder and found several c++ files and libraries inside it.
Here are the images of the directory as uploaded by the Reddit user himself:

With the source code of the insanely popular game being accidentally leaked, players can try to decompile it and even theoretically re-release the game (although that’d be illegal).
Needless to say, the Mediatonic developers are probably already working on fixing the massive blunder that they’ve made.
