The popularity of Among Us is growing faster than a forest fire (or let’s say even the coronavirus). Among Us was released way back in 2018, but it was not until last month when few big streamers picked up the game, and then it’s popularity has just exploded. Almost everyone is playing Among Us, be it the PC gamers or Mobile Gamers. The game got so popular that it dethroned fall guys and even Fortnite in many records.
Thank to this sudden success, the game developers announced that they will start working on a sequel of the game ‘Among us 2‘ and will release it sometime in the next year. But today another official announcement has been made by the developers, which confirms that they have dropped the plan of Among Us 2. But why? let’s find out!
About Among Us 2
The developers announced a Sequel of the game ‘Among Us 2‘ in Mid-August after Among Us suddenly got viral. Innersloth, who is the team behind this viral game, stated that Among Us has been out in the market for over two years, the game is based on quite an old framework, and bringing new content in the game is quite challenging, thus the more easy way will be to build a new game from scratch.
