The world can be a bit bizarre in the timing of something becoming popular. Following the release of the Henry Stickmin Collection, it seemed a new form of traffic hit InnerSloth’s other project, Among Us. Launched back in 2018, the game actually briefly toppled PlayerUnknown’s Battleground in concurrent players, per Steam Database late last month.
The game is still hitting a notable track with a peak of 365,476 players as of writing. This puts it only behind Counter-Strike and DOTA 2, two games that will arguably never die or falter due to the popularity in eSports, just today.
Among Us 2 was in development, but InnerSloth decided to can the project to put more of a focus on improving the original rather than dividing its time between a sequel and its precursor.
Right now, Among Us, despite its lacking console release, doesn’t appear to be slowing down and the fact of the matter, this concurrent player count on Steam is only that – Steam. It’s also available on mobile for free – compared to Steam with its $4.99 price – with its Google Play store page boasting over 100 million downloads.
