Among Us took the world by storm not too long ago, even though the popular social deduction game was released back in 2018, it was only last year that it became a household name.

Almost overnight, Among Us was being played by everyone around the world on mobile devices and PC. After becoming so popular, many fans began begging for a console release.

The developers heard the community request and have since released the title for Nintendo Switch, and announced that an Xbox and PlayStation version would be arriving later this year.

Back in March, Innersloth revealed that Among Us would be arriving for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One sometime in 2021. Then just a month later, the developers announced that a PlayStation 4 and 5 version would be arriving too, featuring an exclusive Ratchet & Clank skin, hat, and pet.

Among Us – Possible PlayStation Release Date

We’re now over halfway into 2021, and fans are eager to know when they’ll be able to get their hands on the console editions of Among Us. Well, it might be sooner than you think if recent database leaks are to be believed.

According to Twitter account, PlayStationSize, Among Us has been uploaded to the console’s database and has an attached release date of August 31st, 2021.

Of course, this date could just be a placeholder, and by no means should be taken as an official release date. But, it’s a very specific date to include as a placeholder. This also doesn’t mean that the Xbox version of Among Us will release alongside the PlayStation version. Xbox could see an earlier, or later, release date.

So, don’t take this information as a confirmed release date, but if it’s true, the PlayStation version of Among Us could be less than two months away.

Among Us Console Edition

The console editions of Among Us are expected to arrive with some cool features. Not only will PlayStation users have access to an exclusive Ratchet & Clank skin, hat, and pet, but Xbox users will be able to pick the title up for free on Xbox Game Pass.

One of the best features about the release though is that it will be completely cross-platform. So, wether you’re picking up Among Us on the PlayStation or Xbox, you’ll still be able to play with your friends on other consoles.

Players can get a sneak peek at how some of the tasks are going to work on console in the PlayStation announcement trailer. As well as a look at the new Ratchet & Clank skin, hat, and pet!
