Current Status on PC

Developed and published by Endnight Games Ltd, Sons of the Forest offers an immersive survival horror experience. Currently the only available platform, the PC version demands high system requirements, hinting at the game’s advanced technical build.

Developers’ Stance on Console Release

While the game is presently exclusive to PC, Endnight Games has expressed interest in a console version. In an interview with GamingBolt, they stated, “We would love to come to console in the future, but are currently focused on delivering the best experience possible to PC players.” This suggests a potential console release, though no official confirmation or timeline has been provided as they are trying to fix the issues and updates for PC players.

However, steam deck players can play Sons of forest with some hiccups on higher settings, and a smoother play on lower settings.

Sons of The Forest PS5/PS4/Xbox Release Date

Considering the timeline of The Forest, which took four years from its Early Access release on PC to its console debut, a similar pattern could be expected for Sons of the Forest. This speculation points towards a possible console release date no earlier than mid-2024.

Console Expectations: PS5 and Xbox Series X/S

Given the game’s high system requirements on PC, it’s unlikely to be released on previous-generation consoles like PS4 or Xbox One. Instead, it’s anticipated to leverage the advanced capabilities of next-gen consoles such as PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Features like faster load times, real-time ray tracing, haptic feedback, and support for 4K resolution at 60 frames per second are expected.

Multiplayer Aspect

Endnight Games confirmed that Sons of the Forest supports both single-player and multiplayer modes, accommodating up to 8 players, and enhancing the gaming experience.


While there is no official announcement regarding the release of Sons of the Forest on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, the developer’s interest and the game’s technical requirements suggest that a next-gen console version is likely. Console gamers remain hopeful for an official update, eagerly awaiting the chance to experience this survival horror adventure.
