Developer Innersloth has decided to cancel Among Us 2 and instead focus on expanding the content offered in Among Us. In a blog post, the developer wrote that the decision was made in response to the recent spike in popularity for the party survival game.
“All of the content we had planned for Among Us 2 will instead go into Among Us 1,” Innersloth writes. “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.”
These content expansions include new servers, colorblind support, a friends/account system, and a new stage, though Innersloth added that there are “lots of other things planned too, we just need to prioritize and organize.”
Innersloth did not provide an exact time on when players can expect this new content to arrive, though the developer writes that working on the servers is currently “taking up all development time.” The new friends/account system will also “definitely take some time.”
