For those who might have missed its rise in 2020, Among Us is a space-themed game developed by a small team called InnerSloth, in which a crew of astronauts must complete tasks while trying to figure out who among them is an imposter, with the power to sabotage their work and eliminate other players.
The latest news on the subject comes from YouTube, and while it doesn’t reveal clear player stats, it does highlight how popular the game has become.
According to YouTube, There were over 4 billion views of videos related to Among Us in September.
A message from the company adds: “While the United States makes up the single largest audience for this content, the Americas, in general, with Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina show up among the countries contributing the greatest number of views.
