Despite originally launching in 2018, there's no denying that 2020 has been a big year for Among Us. The imposter-styled online game has leaped to the top of the charts in 2020, both in its number of players and those watching through services such as Twitch. While the game was only available on PC and mobile for most of 2020, the game recently came out on Switch – and it would appear that Xbox is next.
Making the announcement on its blog, Microsoft revealed that Among Us will be “Coming [in] 2021 to Xbox Game Pass for Console”. Those on PC need not wait however, as the game is available right now for Game Pass on PC.

Providing further details, Microsoft explained that “Among Us is coming to [Xbox Game Pass] on day one of Xbox console availability” – though no exact date was given. During the most recent Nintendo Indie World Showcase it was announced that Among Us would be coming to the Switch. Following this most recent announcement, PlayStation is the only major platform to not see the game come to its system, though this could always change.
There’s no denying that part of the success of Among Us can be attributed to the fact that many countries are suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to an increase in video game consumption. It’ll be interesting to see whether the game’s developers (Innersloth) manage to keep people’s attention in 2021 and beyond.
