Freshly Popular Game “Among Us” cancels its Sequel

The developers of the famous social deduction game Among Us have announced that they have canceled a planned sequel because of the popularity of the first part of the game.

Although the sequel had just been announced just 36 days ago, the developer InnerSloth wants to maintain the game that is so popular as of this moment.

“The main reason we [were] shooting for a sequel is because the codebase of Among Us 1 is so outdated and not built to support adding so much new content,” InnerSloth explained in a blog post. “However, seeing how many people are enjoying Among Us 1 really makes us want to be able to support the game and take it to the next level.”

“All of the content we had planned for Among Us 2 will instead go into Among Us 1.”

Among Us is a party game where the player works with a team to try and figure out who is sabotaging the spaceship crew. This has recently become a massive success.

This is thanks to the large part of the recent popularity of Twitch. The third-most played the game on Steam (costing $4.99) until now, and SteamSpy has estimated that the game carries more than 10 million owners on Steam alone.

The numbers also don’t account for how many people own the game on iOS and Android, where it is free with advertisements (but it can be removed by paying $1.99).

Even though the sequel has been canceled, those who want to play it will eventually be available on the first part. “All of the content we had planned for Among Us 2 will instead go into Among Us 1,” according to InnerSloth.

The developer has also spelled out what the players can look forward to; this includes the promised fixes for server issues, colorblind support, a friend’s system, and a whole fresh stage.
