Sucker Punch has claimed that it has “no plans to revisit Infamous or Sly Cooper right now,” and that no other studio is working on those franchises either.
In a blog post announcing the migration and eventual closure of servers for Infamous 2’s user-generated content, the company also included the following statement about the developer’s other franchises.
“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.”
Sucker Punch also announced that the Cole’s Legacy DLC for Infamous Second Son, which was originally sold as part of the Collector’s Edition, will be released on the PlayStation Store in all territories.
The last entry in the Infamous series was Infamous Second Son, which was released in 2014 starring Troy Baker. Follow-up DLC, Infamous Last Light was released, and also received a separate retail release.
Since Infamous, Sucker Punch has developed Ghost of Tsushima, the critically praised samurai game set on the Japanese island of Tsushima.
Last year, Sucker Punch Game director Nate Fox and creative director Jason Connell were made permanent tourism ambassadors of the city of Tsushima.
In January 2021, the popularity of the game also led to fans helping raise more than $260,000 to rebuild a shrine on the real island.
