Within the span of a year, the game Among Us has amassed more than one billion players, earning it the title of “most popular game ever” based on monthly players. In November alone, Among Us reports that there were roughly 500 million active players. The game has become so popular that the developers have decided to cancel their plans to launch a sequel and instead put more effort into the original that so many have grown to love. Although the game was released back in 2018, its popularity skyrocketed during quarantine. Part of the reason for this can be attributed to streamers and celebrities, such as Soulja Boy and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who have live streamed and brought the game more publicity. It is amazing to think that this incredibly popular game was entirely created by only four developers. While the pandemic has brought many changes to the world as we know it, it seems that Among Us is here to stay!
