Is The Last of Us on Xbox? Naughty Dog’s blockbuster franchise is at its peak in terms of popularity and with a lot more content on the way: a multiplayer spinoff and a second season of the TV show, no less. As a result, you may be wondering whether you can play TLOU games on your Xbox console.

Both The Last of Us and The Last of Us 2 are considered two of the best games of all time, and below you can find out if the games are on Xbox platforms and if they are platform-exclusive.

Is The Last of Us on Xbox?

The Last of Us games are not available on Xbox consoles at all. This includes the first game, its PS5 remaster, and The Last of Us Part 2, which are all exclusive to PlayStation platforms or only available elsewhere on PC. It’s unlikely to ever arrive on Xbox.

Despite the fact Sony has released many of its recent games on PC, it is pretty clear that the company is not going to be replicating that release pattern on Xbox consoles. The only series to make its way to Xbox is the MLB The Show series, but that is largely down to the fact that the Major League Baseball organization has organized those deals and their contract with San Diego Studio to continue developing games focused on bringing the series to more platforms.

The Last of Us does not earn the same luxuries and as such will likely never make the jump to Xbox, unless we see Sony stop releasing consoles completely and move to be a software-only company. But, the chances of that happening are slim.
