The Last of Us has become a powerhouse of gaming across the PlayStation and PC communities, but is Naughty Dog’s narrative-driven horror game available on Xbox?

Originally released in 2013 for the PS3, The Last of Us quickly became one of the most critically acclaimed stories in modern gaming. Following several re-releases for new platforms alongside a TV series adaptation for HBO, the number of people experiencing that story for the first time increases each year.

So, with The Last of Us being available on so many platforms now, can the game be played on Xbox consoles?

Is The Last of Us on Xbox?

The Last of Us game is not available on Xbox. While Sony released The Last of Us on PC in 2023, the game is unlikely to appear on any of Microsoft’s platforms any time soon.

The reason for this is The Last of Us franchise is owned by Sony, who owns the PlayStation brand, and therefore the game is a PlayStation console exclusive. While Sony has proven it is open to releasing its games on PC in recent years, it probably won’t ever be releasing on Xbox.

How to watch The Last of Us on Xbox

However, Xbox users can still experience the story of The Last of Us, albeit in an alternative way.

HBO’s The Last of Us, an adaptation for TV by Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin, is available for purchase from the Microsoft Store. Purchasing this digital content can be played directly on Xbox consoles using the Microsoft Films & TV app.

The Last of Us tells the story of Joel, a hardened survivor in a post-apocalyptic America, as he escorts a young teenager across the ravaged wastelands in search of a group of freedom fighters known as the Fireflies.
