2019$3.2 million
(PocketGamer)

Among Us gamers on PC represented only 3% of the entire community yet make up 64% of the total game’s revenue.

Because of the difference in monetization, PC players have to pay at least $4.99 to play the game, whereas it’s free to play for mobile users.

While the latter comes with ads, that doesn’t seem to bother gamers too much since many decide not to pay for a premium version.

Taking that 3%, a total number of downloads (500 million), and a 30/70 cut from digital store sellers into account, we can calculate that PC gamers brought in roughly $10.5 million in revenue just from game sales.
