Sucker Punch may be working on a new chapter in the InFamous series, according to the words of XboxEra founder Nick “Shpeshal Ed” Baker. PlayStation’s first-party studio was a big hit with Ghost of Tsushima and recently released the first Director’s Cut of the Sony era, and now it could bring back one of the two franchises that made the software house famous worldwide.
“Ok. Please take this one with a grain of salt because it’s one of the things I couldn’t get confirmed. But because I like the series I’m hoping it’s true. But there’s a chance we could see Infamous make a return at Sony’s showcase. Fingers crossed.”
The creator of the first God of War trilogy, David Jaffe, now separated from Sony, recently announced a sensational at the PlayStation Showcase. VGC reporter Andy Robinson confirmed the presence of many “super announcements,” therefore, a return of the IP is not to be excluded.
Sony also recently revamped the domain of the game, and until last year Sucker Punch had opened the hiring to work on an Open World video game. There is always the possibility that the renewal is a simple routine to maintain ownership of the IP and that Sucker Punch’s hires were tied to Ghost of Tsushima’s Director’s Cut, but hoping costs nothing, and luckily the PlayStation Showcase is behind angle.
Sucker Punch worked on the Sly Cooper series for years before starting investing in InFamous. Three chapters of the series have been released, plus the standalone expansion “First Light,” and considering that the finale of the second chapter anticipated a possible return to the scene of the protagonist Cole MacGrath, it is not difficult to imagine a sequel.
