Among Us 2 Axed By InnerSloth To Focus On First Game

Among Us 2 Axed By InnerSloth To Focus On First Game

There's been a muuuuuurder as InnerSloth has axed Among Us 2 and doubled down its efforts to focus on the first game. Although the recent boom in love for Among Us has fans mashing their buttons in anticipation of a sequel, the small team of developers has decided to make sure the OG title gets all their love and attention.

Despite Among Us coming out in 2018, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic locked us all up for months and meant we had to find something new to play. With huge names including Michael "Shroud" Grzesiek, Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, and PewDiePie streaming to the masses, is it any surprise Among Us is everywhere right now? Despite Among Us' current fame, it's baffling to think it hasn't had much of an update since it dropped the Mira HQ and Polus maps last year.

 

Among Us 2 was only announced last month, but in a shock U-turner, an InnerSloth announcement confirmed the highly anticipated sequel is no more. It's not all doom and gloom though, with the post explaining, "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". 

The post expanded on what's next. The team added, "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've all seen how Among Us' servers have been hammered by its recent popularity. It's something InnerSloth is still working on when it comes to fixing things in that department. 

InnerSloth has said its decision to move forward with Among 2 came from the complicated nature of growing the OG Among Us. Saying the first game wasn't designed to be this big, the devs decided it would be easier to power ahead with a second game - that was before Among Us continued to grow, and grow, and grow.

As of September 23, Among Us has bagged an astronomical 41.9 million downloads this month - with a week still to go. That's up from 18.4 million in August, which already had a 661% rise from July. It also peaked at 1.5 million concurrent players, meaning we literally can't get enough of Among Us. In a case of "If it ain't broke", it makes sense the three-man dev team at InnerSloth wants to make sure the first game continues to keep its grip at the top of the charts. 

With previously scrapped plans to bring Among Us to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, maybe InnerSloth is working on reviving that idea for next-gen consoles? It definitely makes sense to tweak and old product you know works well, rather than roll out a whole new game. You only have to look at the recent release of Super Mario 3D All Stars to see this in action over at Nintendo. The idea of a project being so popular you've had to cancel your sequel is pretty amazing. Either way, good work InnerSloth team.
