The PlayStation and Xbox consoles are finally being treated to Among Us, the free party game that pits friends against each other for some online multiplayer mayhem.
The game, as you probably already know, sees one or more imposters trying to covertly kill their pals before their sneak attacks are sussed out. Friendships are tested, laughs are had, and there are endless layers of replayability.
Among Us has been a smash hit on mobile, PC and Nintendo Switch for a while now, and it shouldn’t be too long before PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S owners can get involved with the fun as well.
But when exactly is the Xbox and PlayStation release date for Among Us? Those dates are still proving to be quite elusive, but keep on reading and we’ll share all the information that we have at the moment about the Among Us console release date.
When is the Among Us PS4 release date?
The developers at Innersloth have confirmed that Among Us is coming to PS4 and PS5 consoles at some point in 2021, although the exact date is yet to be announced. The trailer below revealed the news, with Ratchet and Clank entering the world of Among Us for a fun crossover! We’ll be sure to let you know when the precise date is confirmed.
On the topic of the Xbox and PlayStation release, a recent blog post from the Among Us developers offered this update: “I get it, you want to know when. I can’t tell you. I’M SORRY. When I can I will!!”
When is the Among Us Xbox release date?
“Among Us comes to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One in 2021” – so says the headline of an official Xbox Wire blog post, confirming that Xbox consoles will also be joining the Among Us party later this year. Again, the exact date hasn’t been announced, but we’ll be sure to let you know when that changes.
If you’re a member of Xbox Game Pass for PC, you can access Among Us now on your computer of choice. The game was added to the PC version of Game Pass in December 2020, with the tweet below breaking the news.

Will Among Us come to any other platforms?
By the end of this year, Among Us will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S as well as Nintendo Switch, iPhone, Android devices and Windows 10 PC. That may seem like total market domination, but there are still a few other platforms that the developers from Innersloth could consider.
There’s no word yet, for example, on whether Among Us will ever come to Google Stadia. The game-streaming platform has a growing library of games, but Among Us is not yet one of them.
Furthermore, if you own an older Mac or Macbook, you may have already realised that Among Us is not available on your device of choice. Although Apple revealed last year that the iOS version of Among Us can run on 2020 versions of the Mac, older models of Apple’s computers do not support this feature. If you want to play Among Us on an old Mac, you’ll have to dabble in emulators to work around the issue.
For now, it seems like the PlayStation and Xbox ports are the priority projects for the team behind Among Us, but we’ll be sure to let you know if any other platforms end up being confirmed.
