Developer Innersloth announces that all content planned for the sequel will be coming to the original.
Innersloth’s Among Us is quite the fairy tale story, finding great success this year out of nowhere. The developer announced a sequel recently in order to add more features and move away from the first game’s older codebase. However, it’s now announced that Among Us 2 won’t be happening.
It’s reasoning is that despite issues with the code, the game is still very popular. To that end, it’s looking to bolster the current game. “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.
“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.” In the meantime, the developer is working to resolve server issues, add colorblind support and introduce a Friends/Account system (which will admittedly “take some time”). If that weren’t enough, a new stage is also in the works with the core them being Henry Stickman.
Among Us is currently available for iOS, Android and PC. It sees a space crew working to complete various tasks while two Impostors attempt to kill everyone. The crew can call various meetings to discuss and identify the Impostors. The game ends when all Impostors have been identified, all crew members are killed or the progress bar for the crew’s work has been completed.
