Among Us has been 2020’s greatest shock hit, taking Twitch by storm and even getting some play time from US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Now, in line with a report launched by Nielsen’s SuperData, it might be thought of one of many most popular games ever in terms of active players.
The report exhibits that Amongst Us clocked over half a billion energetic customers simply within the month of November, which SuperData says makes it the preferred sport ever by this metric. Regardless of these enormous numbers, nevertheless, Amongst Us does not even crack the highest ten video games of the month by earnings, because of its low degree of monetization. “The PC model (which has a $5 upfront value) accounted for almost all of income from August to November (64%),” the report provides. “Regardless of having a particularly small share of the entire participant base (3% in November).”
Amongst Us’ recognition in November was doubtless helped by Consultant Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s record-breaking Twitch stream of the sport in late October, which was then adopted by a second stream at the end of November. The social deception sport has discovered widespread recognition amongst sport streamers in any respect ranges of fame in 2020, even resulting in the cancellation of a planned sequel so the group might give attention to the primary sport.
Amongst Us was solely accessible on PC and cellular for many of 2020, and solely just lately launched on the Nintendo Switch. The sport will likely be coming to Xbox consoles next year, however there is not any information but on a potential PlayStation release.
