A surefire way to tell that Among Us has reached incredible popularity is by looking at the number of people who are getting sick of it now.
Although it released back in 2018, Among Us has gotten extremely popular in recent months. Since the summer of 2020, when the game first became a certifiable hit, Among Us has only gotten more popular. One sign that Among Us has reached new heights of popularity, however, is that people are starting to get sick of it.

In fact, it’s this increasing popularity that may be to be blame for some players getting sick of it.

It’s everywhere now, which is why people are getting tired of hearing about it. After a long wait, the Airship map is finally coming to Among Us, so it will be interesting to see if players who’ve grown tired of the game will come back once the new content arrives.
Either way, Among Us has become a ubiquitous and inarguable part of pop culture now. It’s a true sign of the game’s popularity – and most likely why some people are getting sick of it.
