The Game Awards premiered on Thursday December 10, 2020 and while The Last of Us 2 took home Game of The Year, Among Us won the Best Mobile Game of the year, which is pretty shocking considering the game actually released in June 2018. What caused Among Us to win Best Mobile Game in 2020 was the fact that its playerbase expanded exponentially, presumably due to the “2020 Lockdown” that forced friends and family to find new ways to spend time together. One of these ways was playing Innersloth’s Among Us.

In December 2018, just a few short months after the initial release, Among Us reached a peak playerbase of a whopping 17 players! Hard to beat that! Well nearly 2 years later, in September 2020 Among Us reached an astonishing 438,524 players! It’s no wonder Among Us won Best Mobile Game!
New Among Us Map Announced
Alongside the news that Among Us won Best Mobile Game at The Game Awards, Innersloth also officially announced and previewed the upcoming “The Airship” map!
Coming in early 2021, The Airship will include brand new tasks, choice of starting room, ladders(?!), and more? No, really, there’s a question mark in the announcement. So maybe there’s more coming? Maybe not? I guess we’ll find out early next year!
