Here’s everything you need to know about Sons of the Forest on console.

Is Sons of the Forest on PlayStation or Xbox?

As it stands, Sons of the Forest is not available on PS5, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, or Xbox One, meaning PC is currently the only way to play. This is unlikely to change any time soon, as the game is still in early access, and developer Endnight Games haven’t announced a console port.

As is the case with many early access titles, a console version probably won’t be on the cards until the devs are happy that Sons of the Forest is ready for a full release. This can often take years of updates, new content, and fixes.

It’s not all bad news though, as its predecessor The Forest did arrive on PlayStation 4 in 2018 after four years in early access. However, the original never made its way to Xbox One and is still only playable on PlayStation and PC.
