After Adding A Social Deduction Mode To Fortnite, Epic Games And Among Us Could Be Partnering Up

It didn't start out as all roses, but maybe this fence mending will lead to something cool?

Remember back in August when Innersloth, the developer of the hit social deduction game Among Us, took notice of the latest Fortnite update that clearly took some inspiration from their title? We sure do! Some "among" the Innersloth team noticed, too. Epic was pretty hush on the whole "inspiration" thing back then, but that silence was broken today when the two companies appeared to mend the fence and stop calling the other "sus" on Twitter.

Epic Games even asked the Among Us crew if they would be interesting in partnering up in some way and the team seemed open to the idea.

What this ends up meaning, whether it's just enhancements to Fortnite's Imposter Mode or a full blown event collaboration, isn't apparent right now as the thread eventually went to private DMs and left us all out in the cold on what Epic had in mind.

Looks like we'll just have to keep our eyes on this as it evolves!

What would you like to see from a potential Epic Games and Innersloth collaboration?
