Among Us Roadmap 2023 promises a new map, improved matchmaking
Developer Innersloth has shared their development plans for the next 12 months of the social deduction hit Among Us, confirming that the coming year will bring improved matchmaking and a brand new map.
Innersloth’s roadmap is a little light in terms of ETAs, but the first task – UI and user experience updates for Among Us – are said to be “coming soon”.
“We want to make playing between us easier and more intuitive,” the developer explained in a Contribution to the new roadmap. “This means a big focus on adding multiple updates to the UI and UX… of the game. Cleaned up the account merge flow, updated the store to be easier to navigate, making it easier to see how to report a toxic player. .. these are all things we want to work on and more.”
Then later in the year – albeit “in no particular order,” as Innserloth notes – Among Us will get a fifth map, improved matchmaking, a Quickchat overhaul, more collaborations, and “more.”
The studio is keeping a low profile on the new map’s theme for now, but promises “all new quests for you to figure out,” as well as more cosmetics and “hidden fun surprises.” Innersloth also goes into more detail on some of the other upcoming additions to the game, noting that the aim of the improved matchmaking will be to make it easier and faster for players to find games, while the Quickchat overhaul will bring refined dialogue options and a will bring easier navigation.
As for the tantalizing “more” at the end of his roadmap, Innersloth teases a few more future ideas, while stressing “this isn’t a promise” and development will only happen “when we have more time”. Disclaimer out of the way, it says it’s been thinking about potential new roles for Among Us, as well as unspecified friends list improvements.
Among Us – now completely red cross free – launched its Hide and Seek mode late last year, as well as a VR adaptation for Meta Quest, Rift and Steam.
