Among Us Patch Notes Revealed
Among Us developer, Innersloth, teased that the game's fourth and next map will be the biggest one to date. There has not been an exact release date or much more information released about that new map but with the hype surrounding the game right now, it is fair to assume the map will come sooner rather than later.
According to Twitchtracker, Among Us has averaged over 100,000 concurrent viewers a day for the past three months. The game is extremely streaming-friendly and the new map will no doubt continue to help the game grow. Popular content creators such as Pokimane, CourageJD, XQC, Disguised Toast, and Valkyrie have been streaming Among Us nearly every single day since the game exploded in September.
One of the more recent highlights of the game was Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) live streaming gameplay on Twitch. She drew in more than 400,000 viewers, making it the third-highest peak on record the game-streaming platform. She used the opportunity to encourage viewers to vote ahead of the US election on Nov. 3.
This is one of the many ways the game has dominated platforms for the past three months with no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
