Among Us 2, the sequel to the smash hit Among Us by developer and publisher Innersloth, has been announced. The reason that a sequel has been announced is primarily because of how "fragile" the first game is.

Innersloth release a devlog stating that they will be keeping Among Us 1 up as long as players are playing it, so people shouldn't worry about the game being shut down on them. If the game is shut down due to a lack of players (they state that if there is less then 30-50 people playing it that it is tough to find matches), then the developers intend on releasing the source code so players can run servers instead.

Regarding the sequel, the first game is so "fragile" that adding anything to the game is a challenge, to the point that adding anything new would "require recreating core sections of Among Us, then making sure everything else still works on top. It's actually even harder than just making a new game." Makes sense.

So, the developers intend on including the first game in Among Us 2, with additional features such as 12-15 players for 3 imposter games, expert matchmaking to find or exclude games such as hide and seek, and accounts and friends will be included "straight out of the gate" in order to make friends with other players. They are also investigating adding additional roles to the game, likely positions such as Seer/Detective, Bodyguard/Cop, or other common takes from games in the genre.

Among Us 2 will also cost extra, but there are plans for a launch discount for those who own the first game. Among Us 2 will also be free on mobile with removable ads, content updates will be free and include maps and game modes. Additionally, there will be in-game currency will allow players to earn cosmetic bundles at their own pace.

Among Us 2 will be out eventually, with the developers planning to reach open beta status in about a year. Until then, stay tuned to TechRaptor.
