Sons of the Forest is available now on PC, and you may be wondering if it’s available on such consoles as PlayStation 4 (PS4), PlayStation 5 (PS5), Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S. If you are, here’s the answer.
Is Sons of the Forest on PS4, PS5, or Xbox?
Sons of the Forest is not on PS4, PS5, Xbox One or Xbox Series X | S, and developer Endnight Games hasn’t announced a console release as yet. Could they be working on a console port behind closed doors? It’s possible, but Sons of the Forest has now exited Steam Early Access and there’s still no news.
Sons of the Forest is actually a sequel to 2014’s The Forest. The original The Forest did eventually come to PlayStation 4 after spending several years in Steam Early Access on PC. It arrived about six months after The Forest left Early Access. The Forest has, to this day, still completely skipped Xbox and it’s doubtful Endnight are going to port it at this late stage.
Ultimately, it’s possible that the new survival game will end up on consoles later, as there’s certainly enough would-be players. When Sons of the Forest launched into Steam Early Access, so many people tried to buy it that it all but broke the storefront.
But there’s a lot of work involved in porting games to other platforms. At the very least, I’d expect it to skip the last-gen consoles and go straight to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S, taking advantage of the power of those platforms, especially since we’re a fair distance away at this point from the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One generation.
So, no, Sons of the Forest isn’t on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, or Xbox Series X | S and its developers Endnight Games have yet to announce any plans to port it to consoles.
