Why was Among Us 2 cancelled? Gamers are wondering why the trendy title had its sequel axed.

Although Among Us was actually released in 2018, it has just recently spiked up on the radar in popularity. Initially, game developers InnerSloth were planning to release a sequel, titled Among Us 2, but have since gone back on that decision.

In a recent blog post, InnerSloth claimed that the code for the current Among Us title was outdated, and would need to be addressed in the sequel. However, due to the major uptick in players, the developers have chosen to instead focus on updating the current title, rather than releasing Among Us 2.

InnerSloth has said that all of the content planned for Among Us 2 will instead go into Among Us 1. This is awesome news for gamers who have already played Among Us, and for those who haven't, there's still time to play before the game is updated.

As of writing, InnerSloth is yet to provide a timeline on when they will have Among Us updated. In a vague statement the studio said, "We just need to prioritize and organize all our plans." Stay tuned to DBLTAP for all Among Us news.
