Among Us Was Searched for Nearly 700,000 Times in a Single Day…on Pornhub

Among Us is suspiciously getting popular on a certain website.

You’ve no doubt seen Among Us at some point over the last few months, and that’s because it’s everywhere. And we do mean…literally everywhere. including porn. The game launched way back in 2018 but seemed to have gone under everyone’s radar, but fast-forward to 2020, a world where we’re living in the middle of a pandemic, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons just isn’t cutting it anymore, the game has boomed.

The developer, InnerSloth was actually due to be making a sequel to the original, but after the sudden success, decided to scrap making a new installment, and instead just throw everything planned for the sequel into the current version. But this is the internet, and you know that somewhere, people look at things and think, “I could make that sexy.”

Pornhub shared some statistics (Thanks, Inverse) in an official blog post after Kotaku reached out to see how popular the game was becoming on the popular porn website. The statistics reveal that searches started to pick up around September 1, 2020, when the game was obviously becoming popular amongst content creators.

September 16 saw the biggest peak, seeing nearly 700,000 searches in a single day. The peak flattened after that, but searches remained strong, and according to the blog post —that was published on October 7, 2020— there have been over 4.7 million searches for Among Us porn. This essentially saw around 115,000 searches a day.

Last year, Pornhub released its Year in Review, similar to 2018, which is details the popular trends on the website. Last year Overwatch and Fortnite were taking the crown, so it’ll be interesting to see the statistics from 2020 when the annual stats are revealed. I’m also interested in knowing whether the latest popular game on the block, Phasmophobia will be appearing in those very search results…

Among Us is available on PC and mobile devices. Those hoping it’s heading to consoles will probably be in for a long wait.
