Crab Game is a popular indie game inspired by the successful Netflix series Squid Games. It has been praised by players and critics alike with the game rapidly gaining popularity on the Steam charts and being watched by thousands of people on streaming platforms like Twitch. If you are an Xbox player then it is only natural to wonder whether this first-person multiplayer title is available for the console or not.
This article will solve all your doubts regarding the availability of the Crab Game for the Xbox.
Is Crab Game On Xbox?
Unfortunately, the Crab Game is currently unavailable on the Microsoft Store with currently no plans being announced by the developers to port the multiplayer title to other platforms.
If you are interested in playing the game with your friends then your only option is to download it on compatible operating systems such as Windows,macOS, SteamOS and Linux.
The only way you will be able to access the game on an Xbox is by using a cloud streaming service that can be accessed by the in-built Edge browser available on the console.
One of the possible reasons why the game isn’t widely available across all platforms is the reason that it was created by an individual called Dani and it can be quite challenging for him to port the game to other consoles while working alone. The Steam version of the game receives frequent updates which take up the majority of Dani’s time and resources.

Creating a console version will also require the developer to add support for the Xbox controller as well as find a way to add voice chat since chatting with other players is one of the crucial elements of the game.
Since the title is loosely inspired by the Squid Game Netflix series, Microsoft probably won’t be comfortable with a potential lawsuit regarding intellectual property if the game ever makes its way to the Microsoft Store.
While the game developer claims that is “definitely not based on any online streaming pop culture korean tv shows”, the close resemblance between the two probably speaks for itself.
