Palworld Continues to Dominate, Eyes Potential Expansion to PlayStation 5


  • Palworld has 19M players on Steam and Xbox, and it is possibly coming to PlayStation.
  • Xbox’s multi-platform plan could mean Palworld on PlayStation.
  • PocketPair’s partnership with Xbox hints at Palworld’s expansion to PlayStation.

Palworld, the survival crafting adventure developed by PocketPair, has solidified its position as the breakout hit of the year, captivating gamers worldwide with its unique blend of gameplay elements. Since its launch, Palworld has amassed an impressive player base of over 19 million users globally, spanning Steam and Xbox platforms. 

Notably, its availability on Xbox Game Pass has contributed significantly to its success, marking it as the largest third-party launch in the history of the service.

Xbox’s multi-platform vision

In a recent internal meeting, Xbox president Sarah Bond mentioned a potential shift towards a multi-platform model, declaring that “every screen is an Xbox” in the company’s future vision. Using Palworld as a prime example, Bond showcased its versatility across various screens and devices, suggesting the possibility of extending its reach beyond the confines of Xbox platforms. 

While this statement falls short of confirming a PlayStation 5 port for Palworld, it underscores Xbox’s inclination towards broadening its horizons through multi-platform releases.

Potential expansion to PlayStation 5

Despite no official confirmation, speculation looms regarding the prospect of Palworld making its debut on PlayStation 5. PocketPair, the studio behind the game, has previously expressed interest in expanding Palworld’s availability, and its newfound partnership with Xbox could facilitate this endeavor. 

With Xbox Game Pass potentially undergoing a rebrand to Microsoft Game Pass and the likelihood of launching on additional platforms, such as PlayStation 5, the path seems clearer for Palworld’s potential expansion. 

As Phil Spencer prepares to outline the company’s plans during a forthcoming edition of the Official Xbox Podcast, anticipation brews for potential announcements regarding Palworld’s future.
