More like Infamous 4 - Cole's story is done, it's Delsin that still has space for a sequel though... kinda.

Second Son is not Infamous 3. Its why its called Second Son.

Infamous 3 could be a continuation of 2's evil ending for instance and that would make Second Son a side story in the series.

 

Infamous 2 Good ending + Second Son Evil ending = Infamous 3.

Nah I'd rather have them continue from 2's evil ending which they wanted to do. Its more interesting and because they wanted to do it they'd be more interested in making that themselves which would make it a better game.

So they take 5 to 11 years to make a game that doesn't sell and gets mixed reception?

The evil ending isn't canon. It was originally but they changed it to the good ending. Hence why you have Second Son and First Light.

Read it again that's what I said. They could still make it canon by making a follow up and calling it Infamous 3.



I think even though in the past Sony has had to close some studios they absorb employees into other existing studios. This new studio could be Kojima Productions, it could be a second studio to Naughty Dog or it could be Sony setting Cory Barlog up with his own new studio to eventually work on his own IP. I'll keep my eyes and ears open regardless.

fair enough, i read it as a different scenario. But I doubt they would do that. The good ending is already canon unless Infamous 3 becomes a what if, ut that is kind of pointless.

Now taking that into consideration... by March 2019 that will be two years working on the game, and at least another 7 months for a launch around October 2019. Now assuming a console launch of 2019, I think its tight but with the engine already done, I dont see it as a big problem. Doing it as a duel launch with TLOU2... that would be enough of a great lineup along with Knack 3 :D

But yes 2020 would certainly allow more time to make a bigger wider changing game than 1. Personally I believe a 2020 release of the next console, and that would give a few studios enough time to get started on their next projects.

The engine isn't done. You have to remember that GG are highly competitive and they wish to push any hardware that they are on. So they would still be upgrading the engine heavily as time goes on. 

I just think that it would take 3-4 years as dev cycles increase and game complexity increases.

Lol of course I didnt mean the engine is 100% complete, no game engine is ever complete, but I mean its made a game thats stunning and has been released, so the bulk of the pain and effort is done. Getting a game released while an engine is being built is a lot of effort, once done its so much easier. Next game would probably take no longer than 2-3 years. Depends on how much pre-production is required.

No, because I enjoy their games more.

What does the nationality of a dev have to do with the quality of their games? Unless you want JRPG's then I see your point.

Has a lot actually, I find games made from Japanese developers are more quirky and take themselves less seriously.
