Among Us is one of the biggest game on the planet right now. However, it was not available to consoles, until now. Among Us comes to Xbox in 2021!
Currently you can play Among Us on PC, Mobile, and Tablets, and I have enjoyed my time on the game. However when playing with my friends, the thing we all kept saying was, ‘this needs to come to console’. Now we have our wish, even though we will have to wait a little longer. Among Us is a simple game, mots of the players are crewmates, one or two Imposters. The crewmates try to complete tasks, however the Imposters are out to both sabotage and kill the crewmates. As dead bodies are discovered the remaining crewmates try to work out who the Imposter is and vote them out.
Whilst I enjoy the game on mobile, I have to communicate through text chat. If this works with game chat on Xbox, then it will be great. The key detail is that the game has to only allow the correct people to speak. Round begins, voice chat needs to be disabled. Crewmate or Imposter dies, they can’t talk for the rest of the game, but still listen etc.
Here is the announcement.

So not only can we be excited Among Us comes to Xbox in 2021, it’s also coming to Xbox Game Pass. My friends and I all subscribe to Game Pass, which means we can all jump straight into Among Us when it releases. However for those who subscribe to Xbox Game Pass for PC use, you can go and play Among Us today.
I can’t stress enough what a great, but limited game Among Us is. No one ever expected this to be such a huge Worldwide hit, as such, the devs have been slow to keep up with demand. The move to console is exactly what was needed to take the game to the next level. If the devs and Xbox can get the voice chat working properly for this, it’ll be phenomenal and a huge gam changer. There is currently no news about a PS5 release, but one would expect that to happen eventually also.
