A follow-up tweet tells fans that they can expect more news during The Game Awards. That’s the annual awards show run by industry veteran Geoff Keighley. Just recently, the full list of nominees were announced, and Among Us is nominated for Best Multiplayer and Best Mobile Game. This is despite the game actually releasing in 2018, as its popularity exploded in 2020.
The awards show normally doubles as an announcement event for new games and content, and it now seems Among Us will have something to share during the show.
Among Us was originally released in 2018, but it gained a new level of popularity earlier in 2020 and it has since become a bonafide hit.
Developer Innersloth announced Among Us 2, but the studio put the game on hold so it could focus on expanding and improving upon the first title.
Recently, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a livestream event for the game before the US Presidential election where she played with popular streamers (and other politicians) and encouraged people to vote. After the huge popularity of that stream, AOC said she plans to return with a second Among Us stream.
