The Future of Among Us


Hey everyone, PuffballsUnited here! It’s been a very exciting time for us the past few months! We’ve absolutely loved seeing everyone enjoying Among Us! Forte has been working hard to get the servers adjusted to deal with the huge influx of players. Thank you so much for bearing with us through these growing pains. Hopefully we can get started on new content soon! Speaking of new content…

 

Us devs have had several long discussions about what we want to do with the game. When do we stop working on Among Us 1? What content goes into Among Us 2? The main reason we are shooting for a sequel is because the codebase of Among Us 1 is so outdated and not built to support adding so much new content. However, seeing how many people are enjoying Among Us 1 really makes us want to be able to support the game and take it to the next level. We have decided to cancel Among Us 2 and instead put all our focus into improving Among Us 1. All of the content we had planned for Among Us 2 will instead go into Among Us 1. This is probably the more difficult choice because it means going deep into the core code of the game and reworking several parts of it. We have lots of things planned and we’re excited to bring new content to everyone as you continue to enjoy playing!

 

Here’s some things that are coming on the horizon:

* 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!

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

I want some new game modes like hide and seek and infection. Youtube has lots of good ones. It would also be cool if you could make new roles. There are lots of good ones like the snitch and jester. Also detective and sheriff. YouTube has lots of good ones.

Hello, I’m a fan, and I have a suggestions. I was wondering if it would be possible to add little challenges and if they are completed, then there would be a little accessory or new color in reward. Thank you if you see this. 😃

i want a new map

Hey inersloth! I'm a big among us fan and I have an idea for you. You know how everyone says the mini crewmates are so cute? Well guess what would make them cuter? Imagine being able to put hats and skins on them? Anyway, ik you have a ton of updates so I understand if you don't have time for this one but just throwing it out there!

are you a stan?

Hello Innersloth, I have a question regarding the account system: I would like to know if it will also be used to fight people who debug the game by calling? Because it is a big problem in Among Us, I'll give you an example: When a person on call dies, he scolds the impostor to the person he's playing with, which spoils the game, because when we are on call, we don't speak at all. It is very annoying and makes the game very dull, just like hackers.

I see that here are a lot of games like this.

Hi. We have recently (a few weeks ago) purchased Among us for PC and we keep getting a message that we should update it. Is that possible, we downloaded it only a few weeks ago, and if so, how do we do that?

hey! all you have to do is redownload the game. it should work

Our Family plays Bomb Squad often. We have a server we host our games on at our house so all family members can join in and play even if they are away. Bomb Squad is pretty open too so you can make your own maps and mods. Guess my question is, will Among Us ever offer the ability to self-host the server and / or allow maps and mods by the user? 

Hey Devs, 

Among Us would be better if it has its own in-game voice chat command though. 

there will be ppl saying stuff like ‘HoW oLd ArE yOu’ and ‘WhErE dO u LiVe’.

Lol, and instead of getting mad at ppl in the chat, they can just scream at them. LOL

I have an idea for among us: ghosts dont attend meetings so they dont leave the game when a meeting is called or their body is reported.

yeah, i mean, the only downside is that ghosts can do tasks during it, so they'd have to fix that if they a c t u a l l y did that, that's what i've wondered, can we still do stuff during meetings? also, it will limit the amount of people trying to get ghosts to show a sign of an impostor, like when you said 'so they won't leave the game'.
