Sucker Punch: 'No inFAMOUS or Sly Cooper Games in Development'

Sucker Punch: 'No inFAMOUS or Sly Cooper Games in Development' - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 01 July 2022 / 2,384 Views

Sucker Punch Productions in a new blog post said there are no inFAMOUS or Sly Cooper games currently in development.

"As we approach 25 years since Sucker Punch first opened, we’re proud to look back on the legacy of characters and stories we’ve created, from Rocket: Robot on Wheels to Sly Cooper and inFAMOUS, and most recently Ghost of Tsushima," reads the blog post.

"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."

The studio did add it will be doing maintenance on the inFAMOUS 2 User-Generated Content servers.

"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," said the developer. "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."

Sucker Punch Productions most recently released Ghost of Tsushima for the PlayStation 4 in 2020, while a Director's Cut released in 2021 for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.

Shame. Those are two of my favorite franchises. Guess I'll just go play through the originals again.

Sounds like a GoT2 is in the works. Or even more shockingly, a new franchise.

Love the infamous series & hope they bring them back sometime soon. For those who haven't tried them, give them a go.

I miss both IPs, but sure focus on GoT 2 or even better a new IP.

What a dagger to the chest......I was really buying into the heavy rumors that a Sly Cooper game was in development either from Sucker Punch or another studio, but they just put an end to every possible rumor.

Take it from me, rumors today are created by twat faces who want to get our hopes up.

Less than 1% of them are backed by hard evidence.

Thats exactly what they would say if they were developing a Infamous or Sly Cooper.

I blame Penelope. Bad enough she caused that bullshit ending in Sly 4. If they bring her back in a new game I hope it's just to have her die.

Just as long as there's no motioned-controlled, hacking missions... I'll be good. Just typing it gives me a stomach ache.
