Last year’s big hit Among Us is still attracting new players. After the game became free on Epic Games Store, its DAU reached 2 million players.
InnerSloth community director Victoria Tran shared some stats on May 31. Normally, the PC version of Among Us attracts around 280 thousand players, growing to 350 thousand over the weekend.
However, the game’s player count saw a huge rise last week. When Among Us became free on EGS on May 27, the title’s DAU surpassed 1 million players and reached 2 million users two days later.

According to Tran, this graphic shows not all new players because “many people grab Among Us on as many platforms as they can and were probably testing it out.” The player count also increased because the US citizens had a long weekend due to Memorial Day.
In March, Victoria Tran also spoke at GDC Showcase, sharing her experience in community management and discussing the importance of failures.
Among Us was released in 2018 but only became a hit last year, attracting hundreds of thousands of concurrent players. The game is now available on iOS, Android, PC, and Nintendo Switch. InnerSloth also plans to release Xbox and PlayStation versions later.
