Among Us official artwork with logo

Among Us has become ridiculously popular over the past few months, to the point that it's now actively competing with Dota 2, PUBG and Counter-Strike for the top spot on Steam. Given its success, it shouldn't come as too much of as surprise to hear that the developers were planning a bigger and more ambitious sequel.

However, in a bit of a unique twist, the devs have now decided to cancel Among Us 2 and instead bring all of that new content into the original Among Us! While the full list of planned changes and improvements is still nowhere to be found, here's a brief preview of what is to come in the near future:

Servers

Forte is still working very hard to figure out our server issues. We don’t have an ETA but things should hopefully be getting better and better. This is taking up all development time on his end.

Colorblind support 

It’s something we’ve put off for way too long… We plan on adding other identifiers for players as well as certain color focused tasks (Like wires). This should also open the potential for more colors. In the past we couldn’t add more colors because it became too difficult to tell players apart.

Friends/Account System 

This is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time but just haven’t been able to tackle. For the health of the game going forward we’re going to sink our teeth in and figure it out! This one will definitely take some time.

A new stage 

It is still very early and we have only just begun designing the layout. The theme has been settled on though! The next stage in Among Us is going to be a Henry Stickmin themed location!

Even more content

We have LOTS of other things planned too, we just need to prioritize and organize all our plans. Stay tuned!

As you might expect, most of the stuff that's arriving in the next few months is fairly small in scope - just a variety of improvements and quality of life changes. Once everything has been polished up and the endless server troubles a thing of the past, then we can start looking forward to more interesting things like new game modes and perhaps even additional character types!

For now, however, you can read a little bit more about Among Us and its development over at the official blog.
