Among Us sequel canceled because of Among Us popularity
InnerSloth’s Among Us which got an immense amount of popularity in recent days and has been growing rapidly has canceled its sequel i.e. 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“The main reason we are shooting for a sequel is because the codebase of Among Us 1 is so outdated and not built to support adding so much new content.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.”
From the offset, we know that Among Us, despite being a relatively small game, is actually rather difficult to make changes in. We can imagine this is because the developers when making Among Us, were more concerned with making a game that simply worked, and did not want to bog themselves down with too many additional features.
However, with Among Us exploding to become one of the biggest games of the end of the year, Innersloth decided to continue supporting Among Us. This is likely a good choice, as it fosters goodwill between the developers and players, and allows them to better capitalize on their success.
