Innersloth have announced that they have scrapped plans to produce Among Us 2 in order to better the original, which has recently seen an explosion of popularity within the gaming community.
I think we can all agree that Among Us is a pretty great game. It’s the perfect balance of co-operation, betrayal, deception, and space-beans! The recent interest and popularity of Among Us has been great but, it hasn’t been without sacrifice.
The rapidly-increased player base has resulted in frequent server issues, and this has led to the development team, Innersloth, shifting their focus onto improving the currently-released Among Us.
Among Us 2 Cancellation Statement
The following was posted on itch.io regarding Among Us 2.
‘ Us devs have had several long discussions about what we want to do with the game. When do we stop working on Among Us 1? What content goes into Among Us 2? The main reason we are shooting for a sequel is because the codebase of Among Us 1 is so outdated and not built to support adding so much new content. 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. We have decided to cancel Among Us 2 and instead put all our focus into improving Among Us 1. All of the content we had planned for Among Us 2 will instead go into Among Us 1. This is probably the more difficult choice because it means going deep into the core code of the game and reworking several parts of it. We have lots of things planned and we’re excited to bring new content to everyone as you continue to enjoy playing! ‘
