Among Us has become one of the most popular games in recent times, for the same reason, many players suffered during the last weekend since they could not play a game.
The reason was a severe attack on the Among Us servers, which made it impossible for people to enter the game. As of Thursday, March 24, Innersloth, the small independent studio behind the game, reported that the title was suffering from a DDoS attack on its servers in Europe and North America.

This attack lasted throughout the weekend, making it impossible to connect to the game. People who managed to open a room reported that the connection was lost almost immediately.
“The servers are still down as we work to fix the DDoS sabotage. They can come back and fall but we will update when we think we have it stable, we are sorry, “said the firm during the weekend.
“I can’t believe I’m working on a Saturday right now, I was supposed to get a croissant,” the account added on Twitter on Saturday afternoon.
On Sunday, March 27, Innerloth sent an email to Kotaku assuring that their entire team was continuing to work to solve the problems, although they still did not have a specific date to deliver more accurate information.
Although the study managed to restore some servers, the situation is not yet fully resolved.
It should be remembered that in 2020, Among Us had to face another threat, after suffering a massive spam attack that affected 5 million players.
