Among Us rakes close to half a billion players in 2020. According to an annual report by market researcher SuperData, Among Us has accrued over a billion players in 2020 alone, earning it the title of “most popular game ever in terms of monthly players.”
The online multiplayer social deduction game has gained a mammoth popularity over the past year, especially during August – November. Celebrities and public figures such as American politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and American rapper SOULJA BOY have both streamed their experience with the game on Twitch with AOC gathering around 435,000 viewers in her stream.
Among Us, community director Victoria Tran reacted to the news in a tweet saying that she had no idea the game would ever do as well as it did, and that she was determined to make the community of Among Us even better. This is an impressive feat for any game studio let alone Innersloth who currently only has 4 employees. The game is doing so well that its developers decided to surrender their sequel plans and instead put all their effort into improving what they already have.
