Forums - Sony Discussion - More new Infamous and Sly Cooper rumors circulating

While I'm not sure how true this might be, there has been speculation about both being in production as far back as last year. This "insider" claims that it is true. 

There are also rumors about a sequel to Ghost of Tsushima being in production. I have my doubts that Sucker Punch will be an active role in all 3 games (especially considering Sly 4 was made by Sanzaru Games). If I had to guess, they'll outsource it to someone like Sumo Digital as they did for LittleBigPlanet 3 and Sackboy's Big Adventure. I could also see the Infamous title being a remaster/remake of the first 2 games to release as a bundle from Bluepoint Games. 

This is just speculation on my behalf. What do you guys think? Could Sucker Punch manage to juggle 3 games? If not, what do you hope they are working on and who would make the other games?

Last I saw, Sucker Punch had less than 200 employees total. So 3 titles at once would stretch their teams insanely thin and would take years to release a game.

I would love a new Infamous and especially a new Sly Cooper though!



Bring back Cole!! I enjoyed the evil ending more! loll



I like Sly Cooper. I would not mind another one. I didn't hate that Vita one either tho most people did. I only played the PS4 Infamous and that was not a good game. Horrible open world and on top of that another checklist game.

Second Son was a beautiful game in terms of how the powers looked at the time but the story didn’t feel like it had as much heart, the characters were pretty much unlikeable, and some of the facial gestures didn’t age well. 

The first two infamous games were so well done. The powers looked great. The characters were like able  (despite Cole kinda being a dick). It also implemented a comic book feel akin to how Sly Cooper did instead of trying to give it that signature PlayStation Adventure look that Sony hit hard last generation. No shade on that look but some of the earlier titles just didn’t age as well as others.

I remain doubtful. When Ghost of Tsushima launched, their LinkedIn listed I think 140 devs, they currently have 170. I don't see how they could be working on both Infamous and Sly Cooper at the same time considering they are one of Sony's smallest AAA studios. Maybe if Sanzaru, the studio that did Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, is on the new Sly instead of Sucker Punch, and all of Sucker Punch's 170 devs are on a new Infamous instead of a sequel to Tsushima. Another possibility I see is Bluepoint doing a remaster/remake collection of Infamous 1 and 2, Sanzaru on the new Sly, and all of Sucker Punch's 170 devs on a sequel to Tsushima. 



Really enjoyed Infamous SS so I hope they continue that one.

I mean, granted they are twice the size as Sucker Punch, insomniac have managed to release a remaster, a new spinoff, a new game, and have two more on the way. 

I’m pretty sure that Sucker Punch wasn’t all working on the GoT multiplayer aspect, so I could see at least two games being in production or at least preproduction. And I agree. Odds are they will be outsourcing at least one of the projects. Unfortunately Sanzaru was purchased to make games for the Oculus, so I don’t think they’ll be returning but we’ll see. This generation has already started kinda crazy. If Sly is coming, I see it being at the hands of Sumo Digital. 



I don't believe these games would launch this year. I think they would be next year titles. Maybe either Sly Cooper or Infamous launches this year, but I couldn't see both of them launching this year and I couldn't see GoT sequel coming until 2024.



Nice, I love the Infamous games! Even if it is just a remaster or something that would still be good.
