Among Us: Best Mobile Game At The Game Awards

That confirms it! Among Us is the Best Mobile Game of 2020. At least according to the Game Awards. Here’s everything you need to know about that, and what’s coming to Innersloth’s game.

Although The Last of Us 2 took home Game of The Year, to little surprise, Among Us snatched Best Mobile Game. What’s interesting is that Among Us actually launched in June 2018.

As we all know, though, it never really gained any traction before 2020 where the game seemingly “exploded”. Kinda sus if you ask me. Still, when you consider the lack of any other “Breakthrough” Mobile games… It makes sense that Among Us won.

For example, in December 2018 Among Us had a peak player-base of about 17 people. But, in September of this year it had grown massively to 438,524. I know, right?

This leap to success was undoubtedly aided by the Stay-At-Home order many of us faced throughout the year and the game’s appearance on high-profile Twitch streams… Valkyrae, Pokimane, and Disguised Toast have all streamed the games numerous times. What’s more, U.S. Senators AOC and Ilhan Omar have joined them!

What’s exciting is that, amongst all that chaos of winning Best Mobile Game, Innersloth announced that another map was coming to the title!

Due to arrive in Early 2021, The Airship will bring new tasks and features to the game. This comes after news that Among Us 2 was to be scrapped so that Innersloth could continue to develop Among Us, given it’s new popularity.
