As it turns out, the new map is actually an homage to the Toppat Clan Airship from the Henry Stickmin series, which was the last game created by Innersloth prior to Among Us.
Original story follows…Among Us will be getting a new boat-themed map soon, and it will be revealed at The Game Awards on December 10th.
Innersloth, the team behind one of 2020’s biggest surprises, teased an image on the official Twitter account for Among Us.
The new map is just one of many new updates headed to Among Us in addition to an account system and colorblind support in the near future, according to Innersloth’s roadmap for the game.

A sequel to Among Us was in development until earlier this year when the developers decided to scrap the project and focus on the original game after its sudden overwhelming popularity.
Among Us has had a big year, becoming one of the most-watched games on Twitch and one of the most-played games on Steam and mobile, despite being released over two years ago in 2018.
Last month, U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez streamed Among Us for the first time, garnering an audience that peaked at over 430,000 viewers.
This Thursday, IGN will be hosting an Among Us Friendsgiving charity stream to raise money for No Kid Hungry just in time for the holiday season. IGN’s Sydnee Goodman and Akeem Lawanson will be joined by Rahul Kohli, Xavier Woods, Alanah Pearce, Jams and Elyse Willems, and more for an evening of not-so-friendly gameplay beginning at 6:00 PM PST.
If you can’t make the stream but want to support our fundraiser, you can donate by visiting donate.IGN.com.
Editor’s note: IGN incorrectly previously labeled the map as a boat, when it appears to be an airship reference to Henry Stickmin, IGN regrets the error.
