Looks like the world of Sucker Punch Productions’ hit samurai action game is about to get bigger, as a rumor suggests that Ghost of Tsushima follow up is called Ghost of Ikishima — and that the new content is coming out for PS5 some time in 2021,
The rumor was shared by a Twitter user named Shpeshal_Nick, who called the downloadable content an “expandalone “+type game.
Ghosts of Ikishima. An Expandalone type game. Aiming for 2021. Not sure how so many seemed to find out so quick.

A reply to Nick’s tweet could lend credence to why Ghost of Ikishima was used — it’s an actual island located in the Tsushima Straight where the game is based on.
“Iki Island, (Iki-no-Shima), is an archipelago in the Tsushima Strait, which is administered as the city of Iki in Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan.”
While there is no official announcement from Sucker Punch Productions yet, best to take this rumor with a grain of salt as always.
Hailed as one of the best exclusive games for the PlayStation 4, here’s an overview of Ghost of Tsushima if you’re new to the series.
A storm is coming
In the late 13th century, the Mongol empire has laid waste to entire nations along their campaign to conquer the East. Tsushima Island is all that stands between mainland Japan and a massive Mongol invasion fleet led by the ruthless and cunning general, Khotun Khan.
As the island burns in the wake of the first wave of the Mongol assault, samurai warrior Jin Sakai stands as one of the last surviving members of his clan. He is resolved to do whatever it takes, at any cost, to protect his people and reclaim his home. He must set aside the traditions that have shaped him as a warrior to forge a new path, the path of the Ghost, and wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Tsushima.
