Among Us’ next update will introduce additional roles
InnerSloth LLC, the developers of Among Us, has just announced that they are working on new roles. They also confirmed that the game's next update would be focused on implementing them into the game
BackgroundInitially, the game was released with one map and two roles - Imposter and Crewmate, and a maximum of 10 players can join a match. You can play with your friends too by creating a private lobby. Overtime, more maps were added to the game and even the maximum player limit was increased to 15. The developers also added visor cosmetics to customise your characters.
New update, New roles, and more infoOn October 4th, a new piece of information was released on the official site that the developers are working on creating new roles. They haven't shared any important details such as how many or what the roles will be (I have a gut feeling that one will definitely be the 'Detective' role). But they did hint that there could be 2 to 4 roles joining the Among Us family, though there's no confirmation yet.
Innersloth also revealed that they have planned another update at the same time, but there are no details about that either. Discussing the new roles, they said that they were planning to make this update for a long time, before the game was even launched. So, the roles might be slightly different than the ones we know. (thanks to the game mods) No other details about the mysterious roles are available right now. But more information is expected to come soon.
