Among Us will be arriving on consoles, much later than originally expected, developer Innersloth posts an update.
Social deduction game, Among Us, developed and published by Innersloth, initially released in 2018, became insanely popular during the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic. The game’s popularity stemmed from the fact that in a time when people could not be together with each other, it succeeded in bringing them together.
Since the start of the pandemic, the game has lost some of its initial popularity. However, several of the mobile, Nintendo Switch and PC users are still hooked on the game and it still remains one of the best games in the social deduction game, even now.
It was in late 2020 that it was announced that Among Us would be arriving on Xbox as one of the titles on the Xbox Game Pass. Soon after, in April 2021, it was announced that the game would also be arriving on PlayStation as well. Following this, there has been very little information regarding the same.
Developers Innersloth had stated that the development of the console versions of the game are on track and that they would be releasing by the end 2021. However, it will be much later than it was originally being anticipated. The developers had so far refrained from revealing an exact date for the release since the “ideal date” that had been revealed for the release was in September. However, it is October now.
Among Us To Arrive On Consoles By The End Of 2021
The company had recently posted an update on their current status and discussed amongst other things, upcoming roles and server issues. The delay in the release has also been discussed. It has been revealed that the reason behind Among Us not making it for its release on the consoles, in September can be attributed to many updates that will be arriving on the game. The developers want to ensure that the updates are “up to snuff and compatible across ALL platforms”. In other words, they want to avoid releasing a suboptimal version of the game for the consoles.
However, the developers have assured fans that Among Us would be releasing on consoles by the end of 2021. And with not much of the year left now, fans can expect more about the release of the game.
