Here’s some depressing news, Sucker Punch has just recently shared a statement in regard to their 25th anniversary. It’s something to celebrate but it sadly looks like they have no interest in continuing some of their most iconic franchises. No exact reasoning is given but in a statement on their official website, they have shared that there are currently no plans to revisit the inFAMOUS or Sly Cooper franchise. Not only that but they also highlighted that no other studio is working on a project that includes these franchises either.
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.
Now, the good news is that they aren’t closing the door on them, but with new franchises like Ghost of Tsushima and whatever they may have in their pipeline next. They do confirm that Cole’s Legacy DLC for inFAMOUS Second Son will be made available on PlayStation Store for those that missed out on it. So, we’re still getting something from those franchises. Though, considering how much time is required to develop projects, we may not see these two return for quite a few years at this rate. Perhaps some studio finds that spark to bring these iconic franchises back.
