Among Us back online after real-life imposter takes down servers

Unfortunately there’s no option to throw the culprit into the vacuum of space (pic: Innersloth)

The North American and European Among Us servers were down nearly the entire weekend but they seem to be on the mend now.

In Among Us, part of the Imposter’s role is to sabotage the spaceship/facility they’re in. Seems like someone was a bit too committed to the cause and sabotaged the game’s own servers.

Over the weekend, the North American and European servers were completely down. Developer Innersloth, via Twitter, informed players of the situation in the early hours of Friday morning.

This was apparently the result of a DDoS attack, meaning this wasn’t due to an error but a very deliberate effort to manipulate and disrupt the game’s network.

So far, no one has come forward to claim responsibility or provide a motive. Since all the attack did was prevent people from playing Among Us, that was likely the culprit’s only goal.

Innersloth has yet to confirm that the servers are 100% operational again. The most recent Twitter update was on Sunday and was in response to a fan lamenting being unable to play the game.

It said that some servers were stabilising but it wanted to hold off on an official announcement until it can confidently say that everything’s back to normal. Even now, its Twitter handle says, ‘servers maybe okay now?’

We quickly tested an online game ourselves and it seemed to work as intended, and we spotted several active games on both the North American and European servers. So, things seem to back to at least almost normal.

Until Innersloth gives a more definitive confirmation, however, don’t be surprised if the severs unexpectedly go down again later today.

Among Us is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, PC, iOS, and Android.
