Among Us is so popular that its developers just canceled the sequel – The Verge


The developers of the hit social deduction gameAmong Usjust announced thatthey have canceled a planned sequel because of the popularity of the first game.

Though that sequel had been announcedjust 36 days ago, developer InnerSloth wants to support the game that’s so popular right now. “The main reason we [were] shooting for a sequel is because the codebase ofAmong Us 1is so outdated and not built to support adding so much new content,” InnerSloth said in a blog post. “However, seeing how many people are enjoyingAmong Us 1really makes us want to be able to support the game and take it to the next level.”

Among Us,a party game where you work as a team to try and figure out who is sabotaging the crew of your spaceship, has recently become an absolutely massive hit, thanks in large part to itsrecent popularity on Twitch. It’s thethird most-played game on Steam(where it costs $4.99) as of this writing, andSteamSpy estimatesthat the game has more than 10 million owners on Steamalone.Those numbers also don’t account for how many people ownAmong Uson iOS and Android, where the game is free with ads (though you can pay $1.99 to remove those).

Even though the sequel has been canned, you’ll still be able to eventually play the game its developers were hoping to build: “All of the content we had planned forAmong Us 2will instead go intoAmong Us 1,according to InnerSloth.The developer also spelled out other improvements players can look forward to, including promised fixes for server issues, colorblind support, a friends system, and a whole new stage.
