Among Us 2 Has Been Cancelled, as New Content Comes to Original Game

InnerSloth, developers of hit whodunnit game Among Us, announced the sequel is cancelled. Instead, the first game will be receiving more content. Happy shanking

If you’re a fan of the Any Button Gaming Twitch channel, you’ll know a little something about Among Us.

The whodunnit indie game has garnered a lot of traction this year thanks to streamers, despite coming out in 2018.

And, as recently as last month, Among Us developers, InnerSloth had announced a sequel was in the pipeline.

However, InnerSloth has recently announced that its plans have changed.

As opposed to releasing a fully-fledged sequel, InnerSloth instead looks to make drastic changes to Among Us.

In a devlog itch.io, InnerSloth stated;

“Us devs have had several long discussions about what we want to do with the game. When do we stop working on Among Us 1? What content goes into 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 The main reason we are shooting for a sequel is because the codebase of Among Us 1 is so outdated and not built to support adding so much new content.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. 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 have lots of things planned and we’re excited to bring new content to everyone as you continue to enjoy playing!”

Emergency Meeting Has Been Called

It’s an interesting stance to take. By the developers’ own admission, the codebase for Among Us is incredibly outdated. By implementing any updates of substantial size, InnerSloth has to do extra work to add more content.

Of course, putting the effort in to make a sequel would be just as time-consuming. And considering how popular Among Us is currently, it’s probably best to strike the iron whilst it’s still hot. Or evict King James before Mamma S gets a chance to blame Cained. If you know, you know!
