Although it’s just a mobile game, Subway Surfers remains massively popular to the point where it has even influenced huge IPs onto the mobile market such as Crash Bandicoot On The Run. Lots of people continue to play the mobile game regardless of where they are, so it’s no surprise that it still has a huge following online.
However, what will surprise people is the claims on Twitter that the game was made and created to honour the creator’s son who allegedly died.
Why was Subway Surfers created?
There’s a rumour on Twitter which says that Subway Surfers was created because of the creator’s son passing away.
This rumour suggests that Subway Surfers was created to honour the passing away of the creator’s son, and you can find the viral tweet just below, which has nearly 250,000 likes.
Aside from just claiming why the game was made, the above viral tweet also suggests that the son had died because of a skating accident on a train track.

Subway Surfers: Is the ‘creator’s son died’ a real story?
Lots of people are asking if the Subway Surfers story about the creator’s son is real or not.
People are spreading the rumour about the creator’s son all over Twitter, but the CEO of SYBO Games has previously provided an official reason for why Subway Surfers was made.
Back in 2018, the CEO of SYBO – Mathias Gredal Nørvig – said that it all started when SYBO’s two founders entered animation school and decided to work together because of their passion for geek culture and animation.
Influences for the game included passion, fashion, skate, music, and street art, but no son was ever mentioned.
