How to Play Poppy PlayTime on Xbox? (Explained)

| Updated:

As it stands, you cannot play Poppy Playtime on your Xbox Series S or X console. At least, not yet. 

Poppy Playtime is the latest Horror puzzle game from an Indie game developer, MOB Games, and it has taken the internet by storm. Set in a claustrophobic abandoned toy factory, you play a former employee visiting an abandoned toy factory, Playtime after it’s been shut down for over 10 years. Your task is to avoid the cascade of vengeful toys hunting for you while solving tricky puzzles. 

It was released on October 12, 2021, right on Halloween, and has received tons of praise from critics and players of all ages. It’s a modern classic, and with the MOB Developer team announcing via Social media that they’ll Chapter One is free on Steam and available on mobile, Console Players are eager to know when a port is coming.

Is Poppy Playtime Available on Xbox

Unfortunately, Poppy Playtime is not available on Xbox Series X and S or Playstation 4 and 5, and there is no news of when they’ll be coming. Although, it’s likely that you won’t have to wait as long as you think. Poppy Playtime was originally released on PC via Steam, so it stands to reason that an Xbox port shouldn’t be too difficult to manage. Playstation 4 and 5 are other matters entirely.  

When will Poppy Playtime be On Xbox?

As it stands, the Poppy Playtime development Team is very busy. They just released episode 2 of Poppy Playtime and will be spending most of their time patching bugs, taking comments, marketing, as well as hosting events and tending to other sides of their business. They will be updating their collection on PoppyPlaytime.com to include plushies, apparel, Posters, and enamel pins from episode 2 of the game. There is also talk of an NFT collection dropping soon which should include teasers and clues from Episode 2 and other future projects.

 The development team will also be occupied with updating Episode 2 of the game, which was just released on Steam, as well as their recent mobile port for episode 1. 

Given the size of their team, An Xbox Series S and X port will likely not be coming in six months or a year and might release alongside a Playstation Port to satisfy console users around the board. 

Will the Xbox Release come with Episode 2 of Poppy Playtime? 

Although no official word has been given, there is very little reason not to believe that the new port will feature DLC content. Their mobile port featured the full story and mechanics of episode 1– graphics being the only feature lacking— and we think the Xbox port should come with all of the stories. 

It should also feature other gaming content and modes released until an official port is available.

How can you Play Poppy Playtime without a PC?

MOB Games released mobile versions of Episode 1 of Poppy Playtime on the App and iOS stores. This means you can download them and experience proper chilling adventures from your mobile phone regardless of where you are.

This undercuts the need to have an Xbox or Playstation. If you’re looking to experience the game on a bigger screen, you can also hook up your phone via display adapters to a sufficiently wide monitor. The graphics won’t look as polished as modern Pc or console graphics, but you’ll still be able to play your favorite game.

Yes and No. MOB Games have Episode 1 of the game available for free so that most people can enjoy the base game. The DLC content is available via Steam if users would like to experience new stories. Poppy Playtime Horror and Poppy Playtime Unlocked are new stories in development with released dates to be determined. It is unclear if these DLC will ever be available for free as in the first episode. However, that seems unlikely, going by their previous titles.
