Innersloth explains why Among Us updates are 'taking so long'
No-one was prepared for Among Us to become the one of the biggest games of 2020—least of all developer Innersloth, who this week explained that the work of restructuring to keep up with the game's explosive success is why updates are taking longer that expected.
In the game's first developer update of 2021 Innersloth explains all and the answer, unsurprisingly, is that the three-person team wasn't prepared for a two-year-old game to become so popular that US congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would end up streaming it. Twice.
"Among Us gained incredible traction pretty late into 2020 that we weren’t expecting, and that meant A LOT of change for us," community director Victoria Tran wrote. "Not to dive into too much organizational stuff, but not only did we need to switch back to working on Among Us after thinking it was done, but we also needed to set ourselves up more sustainably to work on the game."
