Hopefully, Innersloth will be able to fix this quickly so that players of Among Us they can go back to filling the servers with what they used to be one of the most played games during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The goal of the crew members is identify and eliminate impostors or complete all the tasks on the map; the goal of the impostors is secretly sabotaging the mission by killing teammates before they complete all their tasks without getting caught.
Among Us was originally released on PC, iOS, Android but, following the success, the development team also released the title on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 between 2020 and 2021.
