Is Among Us Coming To PS4, Xbox or Nintendo Switch?

Could the party game move to console soon?

Among Us, Innersloth's ridiculously popular PC and mobile title, has become a runaway success in recent months.

The four-to-ten player multiplayer game has players trying to survive in space, all while a cheeky imposter (often more than one), work to undo all of their hard work and avoid detection.

It's become insanely popular, and the developers are "starting to talk about" a console port.

Is Among Us Coming To Console?

"[A console port] is something we’re starting to talk about," programmer Forest Willard explained on a recent live stream (as reported by Inverse).

According to Willard, the issue would come down to ways to allow players to communicate, noting that they'd need to integrate "a system for quick comms".

Given the complexity of the information being relayed, it's unlikely you'd use a radial menu like Rocket League, and even something more precise like Apex Legends' ping system could be ill-equipped.

That means voice chat would likely be key, but not everyone is comfortable with it or would be able to use it. On PC, many players use Discord to communicate, for example.

In any case, it's good to know that the team is considering it, and while it may be a little way away, we're sure it'll be worth the wait.

The team recently announced a sequel to the game was in development, before cancelling it shortly after.

"The main reason we are shooting for a sequel is because the codebase of Among Us 1 is so outdated and not built to support adding so much new content," the Innersloth website reads.

"However, seeing how many people are enjoying Among Us 1 really makes us want to be able to support the game and take it to the next level."

"We have decided to cancel Among Us 2 and instead put all our focus into improving Among Us 1."

"All of the content we had planned for Among Us 2 will instead go into Among Us 1."
