According to The Verge, this announcement comes months after Sony confirmed 'Among Us' was coming to its PlayStation consoles this year. Just like on other platforms, the game will support crossplay and online multiplayer across mobile, PC, and now consoles.

The only difference between the two console versions is PlayStation players will get access to exclusive Ratchet and Clank-themed cosmetics. There's a skin and hat to make your character look like Ratchet and a pet that looks like Clank.

As per The Verge, physical editions of the game will also be arriving in Europe on December 14, with a US release due in January.
