Among Us is moving from a 2D to a first-person, 3D experience that places players in the heart of the Skeld and retains the core mechanics fans love.

You’re used to navigating Among Us in 2D, but what if you could BE the Crewmate? See life on the Skeld through the Crewmate’s eyes visor? Well, as part of The Game Awards, Innersloth & Schell Games announced that Among Us will be coming to virtual reality!

This new 3D experience will place you and our suspicious spacebeans in the heart of the Skeld, with all of the core mechanics of teamwork and betrayal you know and love. The VR edition will continue to support the multiplayer experience too, of course! Now you can really have an emergency meeting together.

VR version won’t be compatible with the original Among Us game, so you’ll only be able to play against other VR beans.


In 2020, Innersloth tapped video games consulting firm Robot Teddy to help bring the game to additional platforms and manage other facets of the business. Schell Games, a leading virtual reality development studio, will work with both companies to bring Among Us to virtual reality platforms where players can fully immerse themselves in the universe Innersloth created.

“We are grateful to the community who continues to share our game with friends and family and support us,” said Victoria Tran, Community Director at Innersloth. “Schell Games has a legacy of creating award-winning virtual reality titles, and we couldn’t be more excited to create a brand new Among Us experience for our existing fans and new players. We can’t wait for players to become Crewmates in a first-person environment.”

“We’re excited to take all the features players worldwide have enjoyed from Among Us and tailor them to a fully immersive experience in virtual reality,” said Jesse Schell. “There’s a lot to love about Among Us and this partnership presents a perfect pairing of the runaway success of the original game and the upward trajectory of the virtual reality ecosystem.”

“We are looking forward to continuing our existing relationship with Innersloth and Schell Games on this new development adventure,” said Callum Underwood, Director of Robot Teddy. “Virtual reality is growing in popularity, and this growth will only continue to increase as new platforms and technologies emerge. We couldn’t be more excited to work with both companies to bring this next iteration of Among Us to fruition.”

The original Among Us is currently available on PC (Steam / Epic Games Store,Windows Store), Nintendo Switch, itch.io, iOS, and Android, and will be available on Xbox and PlayStation on December 14, 2021.

Among Us VR will be coming to Meta Quest, PlayStation VR, and SteamVR headsets with release dates and additional information to be announced at a later date.
