Is Among Us coming to PS4, Xbox and Switch?



Among Us continues to be one of the most sought-after multiplayer games right now – in which crewmates work together to identify who the murdering imposters are within the group.

However, at the time of writing, Among Us is only available on Steam for PC, iOS and Android. However, due to the rise in popularity there could be a possibility that we also see it on consoles. Here’s everything we know so far.

Is Among Us coming to consoles?

Sadly, there is currently no confirmation of Among Us coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch. However, that doesn’t mean that it couldn’t happen in the future.

Innersloth – the studio behind Among Us – is investigating the possibilities of bringing the game to other platforms. However, studio programmer Forest Willard explained in a Twitch stream that the biggest hurdle the developers face is a way to keep player communication as part of the game.

“…we’d have to write a system for quick comms. It’d basically be for randoms, like Rocket League. I don’t know if we’d be able to implement console voice chat or not. I know one of the first things we want to add is a friend’s list-type account system”.

The game itself doesn’t feature any build in voice-chat systems, only a text chat option. Therefore, current players must use a third-party audio call such as Discord, which is more difficult for console users. Perhaps the studio is working on a new way for players to communicate without the need for third-party chat systems.

The developers have now confirmed that the planned sequel – Among Us 2 – will be scrapped in favour of expanding on the original game. Therefore, it could vert well be possible that we see ports for the PS4, Xbox and Switch. We’ll update this article as we get more information.
