Among Us developer InnerSloth has cancelled the planned sequel to its hit multiplayer game due to the original’s vast and unanticipated success.
Originally released in 2018, Among Us has become a runaway success in recent months due to its popularity on Twitch. It has 10 million Steam installs, where it costs $4.99, and a further 70 million on Android, where’s it’s free.
The gameplay sees a group of players working together on a spaceship to uncover an imposter in their ranks who is trying to sabotage the craft and kill everyone on board.
According to InnerSloth, the sequel – which would have enabled the developers to update the codebase – has been canned so that the team can keep supporting a game that so many people are enjoying.
All of the content that was planned for the Among Us 2 will now go into Among Us in the form of updates. Other tweaks and additions are promised, too, including colorblind support, a friends system, and a new stage.
You can download Among Us for free right now on the Google Play Store.
