With Sucker Punch Productions establishing a new successful IP with Ghost of Tsushima, some might be wondering whether this meant that we’ll see the studio revisit their old franchises once again. Well, it seems that’s not happening anytime soon, as Suck Punch themselves have announced that no new inFAMOUS or Sly Cooper games are in active development.
Here’s the announcement from the studio:
As our games continue to grow in scale and complexity, they require the full attention of our studio. With our focus on our current project, we have no plans to revisit inFAMOUS or Sly Cooper right now, and no other studio is currently working on projects related to those franchises either. These characters are very special and near and dear to our hearts, so while we’d never say never to re-opening those doors down the road, for now there are no inFAMOUS or Sly Cooper games in development.
In addition to that, Sucker Punch has also announced that inFAMOUS 2 UGC (user-generated content) are being moved to different servers, though confirmed that they will eventually need to sunset these too. Also of note, Cole’s Legacy DLC for inFAMOUS Second Son, will be put back on the PlayStation Store for anyone who wants to snag (which didn’t have the chance before).
We know many people still play these games even today, so we’ll be performing maintenance on inFAMOUS 2 UGC servers soon to move them to a new home that will keep them up and running a bit longer. We will eventually need to sunset these, but want to keep them running for as long as possible for players who are still active.
We’re also working to put Cole’s Legacy DLC for inFAMOUS Second Son (which was previously only available as part of the Collector’s Edition) on PlayStation Store in all territories for anyone who missed it.
That’s a bummer to hear, but given how awesome Ghost of Tsushima turned out to be, we wouldn’t be shocked if the studio’s next game is a sequel to it. We gave the game a solid 9.5/10, and I said, “Rejoice, samurai warriors! Ghost of Tsushima lives up to the hype and even surpasses it. This is one Ghost you’ll want to see more of soon.”
