Among Us was the most played game in November. 

It has been announced that Among Us is now the popular game in terms of monthly players ever. According to a report from SuperData, roughly half a billion users played the game in the month of November. The report goes on to state that since Among Us is not heavily monetized, earning figures for the game are comparably smaller. The PC version of the title, which runs for $5, accounted for a majority of the game's revenue from August to November, sitting at 64%. This was despite having an extremely small share of the players base, accounting for 3% in the month of November. 

SuperData also gave a number of other statistics for video game sales in the month of November. According to their report, digital games brought in $11.5 billion during the month of November. This is the highest monthly revenue ever. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War sold 5.7 million digital units in November, which is a 7% increase when compared to the previous franchise record that was held by Black Ops 4. Assassin's Creed Valhalla sold 1.7 million units, which was 50% more than Assassin's Creed Odyssey at launch. Spider-Man: Miles Morales sold 663k digital copies across the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The release of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands led to the title's highest monthly revenue since 2008, and the highest amount of players number since 2010. 

Last week it was announced that Among Us will be coming to Xbox consoles sometime next year. While no time window for the release was given, Microsoft did reveal that the game will be available on the Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S through the Xbox Game Pass for console. No other details were given about the game's release on Microsoft's console. It was also announced that Among Us can now be played on PC through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, as well as the PC version of Game Pass. The game on Xbox Game Pass supports cross-play with mobile and other PC versions of the game. 

Among Us is available now for PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S through Game Pass, the Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.

I have been playing video games for as long as I can remember. I am a huge fan of JRPGs, though I also enjoy fighters. I have been writing about video games for a few years now. If it has a great story, I am sure that I will dig it.
