Accounts are an upcoming feature in Among Us. Not much is known about them, although friend list and reporting systems will both be implemented.

History

Accounts were confirmed on September 23, 2020 in a devlog by Innersloth as one of the new features that will be implemented into Among Us after the cancellation of the game's sequel, Among Us 2. They stated that a friends system would also be added.[1]

On November 3, 2020, moderation features were announced in the in-game announcements. The release date of this feature was revealed to be sometime during December 2020.[2] However, as of early 2021, the update has still not released.

On November 19, 2020, the Among Us Twitter account made a post stating that moderation features are a top priority. They said, "We want our space to be welcoming & respectful, so this is our first step in sabatoging the toxicity and hacking."[3]

An external development team is working on the accounts system, though it has not been confirmed who the team is.[4]
