If you were hoping Sony might resurrect the inFAMOUS or Sly Cooper franchises then I have bad news. In a new blog post the creators, Sucker Punch, have confirmed that they are not working on the franchises and neither is anyone else.
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.
Earlier this year there was a rumour of a Sly reboot. Nick Shepsal from Xbox Era has then Tweeted “Ok…so, my source *has* given me the green light, but we’re still not 100% certain. But it’s believed that Pixel Opus (as many of you have guessed) possibly in collaboration with Sony Animation are the ones working on Sly. I also believe Sony Animation is on the cartoon project”
Tipsters AccountNGT then backed this up with another Tweet, “The next Sly Cooper is not developed by Sucker Punch”, and also stated “According to a source, for Sly, they are aiming for a reveal for the second half of 2022. Which makes sense since later this year is Sly’s 20th anniversary.”
It appears those sources were talking out of their bottoms.
While it has never been officially confirmed it’s an open secret that Sucker Punch are working on a sequel to their hit title Ghost of Tsushima. Having sold more than 8 million copies, Ghost of Tsushima tells the tale of lone warrior, Jin Sakai, who must defend the island of Tsushima against unrelenting Mongol hordes. As we see throughout his journey, there’s more depth to this character than a vengeful swordsman as he struggles between upholding the samurai code and taking a more effective (yet dishonourable) path to repel Tsushima’s invaders.
