This comes after the multiplayer game reached the milestone of 500 million players in November. According to a market research firm SuperData, Among Us had more than half a billion active users in November.

This game gained huge popularity during the Covid lockdown with most of the streamers and YouTubers playing the game.
The game was due for a sequel and the developers even started working on the same in Aug 2020. But due to the rising popularity of the game, the developers decided to drop the idea of the sequel. Now they shifted their focus on improving the original game.
