Among Us Devs Confirm Custom Maps Won't Be Added To The Game

The cosmos might be littered with possibilities when it comes to InnerSloth's Among Us; however, developers on the three-person team have confirmed the fan-favourite feature of custom maps won't be added to the outer space murder mystery. 

For those who haven't blasted off into the icy depths of space in a tiny tin can yet, Among Us tasks a doomed crop of Crewmates with exposing the Imposter(s) "among them" before they're picked off. The game is nothing new, and with Among Us being out since 2018, there are obvious questions about where it goes next. As it stands, there are only three maps, with the last one (Polus) being added nearly a year ago.
 

As Among Us continues to sit near the top of the Twitch charts and keep its loyal following of Twitch streamers including Tyler "Ninja" Blevis and Félix "xQc" Lengyel, it's still a game on the rise. Sadly, InnerSloth has pulled the plug on its plans for Among Us 2 and vowed to continue work on expanding the experience of the OG game. This hopefully means there's a whole host of new features on the way. Just don't expect custom maps to be one of them.

Speaking during Twitch's Weekly Gaming Show, InnerSloth's Marcus Bromander explained how the team would need to give map assets to players. Putting it in its simplest terms, Bromander said they don't exist. He told fans, "There's no tile sets or anything, so we'd have to redo how we make our maps basically". The current maps are pretty basic and fixed as one continuous drawing, meaning the minuscule dev team would have to create individual assets for each item you wanted to move.

Fellow developer Amy Liu added, "We would need to provide the assets, so we would have to draw walls, boxes, and accessories". She concluded that they'd need to create a tool similar to The Sims, which "does take a lot of work". 

At the moment, the Among Us gang is busy dealing with a serious hacking issue that has inundated the game in recent days. Stopping that in its tracks is a much more pressing issue than fiddling around with custom maps.

Games like Super Mario Maker and Overwatch have become known for their custom maps, and while we'd love to come up with our own Among Us layouts, it's not in the pipeline. That being said, with Among Us 2 out the window and devs on it in terms of evolving Among Us, who knows what the future holds for this space slaughter extravaganza?
