DualShock Nexus: A recent photo from Sucker Punch Productions shows the team possibly going over their next title.
Sucker Punch Preparing to Reveal inFamous 3? If so,Im preparing to go bankrupt with all of these games the ps3 is getting.
Damn I was looking at the wrong pic, it could be a new IP or a new inFamous
They'd have a hard time carrying on the inFamous story with the two completely different endings. But I reckon they could pick up with just one of the story lines and go.
What pic? The only pic I see has Cole in the center leading what seens to be a group of Conduits, looks like Kuo is on his immediate right and on the background, over the city, there's a bunch of attacker planes coming.
@inveni I image they'll do it like The Force Unleashed did it, where the 'Good' Ending was the canon/story/continuation.
@inveni0 They could do what Bioware does with Mass Effect, import your saves so your choices carry through.
@lightning samus did you play both endings for infamous 2? it would pretty much have to be two different games
@inveni0 or, if they're felling really awesome, they'll just do a good and a bad story :D
I love how they are just fishing for website hits. This has absolutely no meaning to it, other than the company is having a simple meaning. Common sense.
They COULD do LOTS of different things. But we all know "gamers", and they'll all complain about their choices in I2 not mattering in I3. Will that make them whining babies? Yes. Will we still have to listen to it? Yes (on N4G, at least).
I hope it is a new ip. I loved infamous 1 and 2 but it ended on such a great note and ended perfectly (both endings in infamous 2 were good). Whatever it is I hope the soundtrack is as good as it was in infamous 2. Really got back into it recently
It didn't end perfectly at all. MGS4 is a game that ended perfectly. Infamous 2 ended on a cliff hanger.
WARNING SPOILERS WARNING SPOILERS @AgreeFairy How did it end on a cliff hanger. Cole died in the good ending but all the conduits died with all the humans saved. The evil ending Zeke is killed by Cole and all humans are dead/will die and the conduits live and Cole becomes the beast. I hope your not talking about the question mark at the end of the good ending because that ending wouldn't work if it carried on because all the possible supernatural enemies are dead (they said that) and everyone loves Cole. To bring an enemy saying a new sphere was created is poor story design and too coincidental. It is the same as having a main enemy for a few games until you wipe them out. But for a new game to be made a new enemy has just appeared with no mention of them before hand. END OF SPOILERS
Regardless of the ending, that certainly looks like Cole carrying his messenger sling pack up front center. For me the two games rank up there with Arkham as the best superhero series to date albeit with great moral conflict.
They're talented writters I'm sure they can bring Cole back some way
If they wern't planning to they wouldn't of bothered adding the question mark at the end.
What about if it's revealed only the strong conduits survived or someone was creating new man made conduits....anything is possible
Cole will return...they'll find a way. Cole is basicaly the face of the inFAMOUS franchise.
*********SPOILERS********* At the end of the good ending, as Zeke sails away with Cole's body, there's a bolt of lightning that seems to hint that Cole's been resuscitated.
@morganfell That is a picture from infamous 2 evil ending
*SPOILER WARNING* Both ends can be continued. In the good ending the question mark is obvious, it's like "Cole is dead... Maybe...". If he survived, others may had too. In the bad ending the world is now filled with conduits just discovering their powers while humanity is dying a slow death as the plague proceeds, obviously opening up for a rich superhero universe, where some Conduits look for ways to save humans while others are looking to achieve more power. The RFI was not created to kill conduits all around the world, Dr. Wolfe developed it to counter the Ray Field energy that causes diseases in humans. It's just a side-effect that Conduits, which powers survive of Ray Field energy, are affected in the process. Wolfe theorized that the RFI could kill the Beast, but we don't really know if it can kill all conduits or any at all... It could just mess with their powers temporarily. Sure, Cole and other in New Marais are prumably dead, but they were on the center of the RFI blast. *SPOILER END* It's obvious that InFamous 3 is happening. The questions are when and which way are they going to take it. Right now, it can even generate some major spin-off, based on the same universe without concerning Cole's story at all.
I predict a temporal paradox storyline due to Kessler's abilities in the first game. We know who Kessler is, we know what he can do. Who's to say that this isn't all a possible timeline? I know they said it was a one way trip for him, but you never know.
Don't worry, Infamous 2 just came out last year. An Infamous 3 would most likely be set for 2013.
Cant wait for inFamous 3 if its being worked on but Sony save it for PS4 please that would be a great launch title
The image screams multiplayer
The pic with cole with others isn't the pic named in the article. That pic is from infamous 2 bad ending (right at the end). The pic the article is talking about is someone holding a weapon and the developers in a big room obviously about to watch something
InFamous 3 would be a very hard one to pull off. IMO, the game ended both scenarios perfectly. Not to say I wouldn't like another one and a proper installment, but I'd say let sleeping dogs lie and lets see what Sucker Punch have next up their sleeve. Where can you go from a platform series that slowly became a sandbox game in the sequels to making a series of superpower infused sandbox third person shooters with good/bad choices? Only time can tell, but I guess it'd be a natural progression.
I don't think continuing the story would be hard, but they'd either have to pick one ending to be canon or make 2 completely different campaigns. Or just pull a Pokemon and do infamous 3: red and infamous 3: blue haha
SPOILERS I would like to see them connect both scenarios. Evil Cole vs. Good Cole. I mean technically he learns the ability to time travel so all the have to do is incorporate a way for Good Cole to go into Evil Cole (current beast) time and fight him. It would make for an epic bout and is definitely a likely plot, I mean hell he's already fought an older version of himself.
So you want him to fight himself again? That storyline's been done. People would see that coming a mile away. Edit: Yeah, but the thing about the previous 2 infamous games are the huge plot twists at the end and that idea just seems too obvious for them to throw at it. It'd make more sense if there was an even bigger evil to take on.
@TopDude you misunderstood me. Yes him fighting himself has already been done, but I think it would be cool if both current Coles fought one another because if you played both Karma sides of each inFamous game you have a stronger attachment to both good and evil Cole. I mean what else can they do especially seeing how inFamous 2 ended with Evil Cole reviving only conduits and killing innocent people while Good Cole appears to die. I just would like to see both stories merge into a grand finale with a showdown between both good and evil.
@Treezy504 While Cole appears to die in the good ending there is a good chance he isn't dead. There is a split second frame where lightning strikes the boat his body is on and it forms a "?" pretty much implying the series is being left open. As long as Cole remains alive there are myriad ways that Sucker Punch could continue the series. Personally InFamous 3 or new IP I can't wait Sucker Punch is one of my favorite Studios they have not ever made a game I have not loved and I'm sure whatever it is they are working on will be great.
@EVERYONE Just a shot out of the dark but am i the only person here who remembers Cole mentioning having a brother. If Cole is a conduit, who's to say his brother isn't? :b @Treezy504 The story can always be split between the brothers. One good, one bad :D and it wouldn't be as cheesy as Cole Vs. Cole again.
Nice but I hope not I rather see it on ps4 to many sequels on 1 platform.
My thoughts exactly. I love the series, but Infamous 3 is a game I'd rather see saved for next gen. Thankfully, I don't see any reason in this article to make me think it's coming soon. This article doesn't have much to offer outside of "Look! They are working! They must be working on a new game!" Duh, they are working on something.
If this is true then these guys work fast. Infamous 2 came out just last summer.
inFamous came out in May 2009 inFamous 2 announced July 2010 inFamous 2 released June 2011 It is possible they have been working on it and will announce it this year and release it in 2013.
One of my favourite games of this gen. The team of coundits on the pic suggest heavy multiplayer content. I prefer a solid story mode over that but I'm sure Sucker Punch won't let us down whatever it is.
From last I heard, inFamous 2 didn't do well sales wise? This is a complete shame because I personally think it's one of the best PS3 games out. Kinda reminds me of Resistance, where the best game in the series (Resistance 3) sold really poorly. Hope this doesn't happen to inFamous.
Sadly good games with poor sales are a rule in recent years. Just look at Platinum Games numbers, such a shame.
Infamous 2 was profitable, apparently, selling around twice as many copies as infamous in it's first month. I don't think it broke the million barrier, but apparently the sales were strong for a single platform game. As for the festival of blood, that could be a different story altogether.
At one point I:FoB topped PSN download list so it may have sold well.
Right, but that did not require Infamous 2 to play ^^^
It broke 1 million sales. The first one broke 2 million(not counting the thousands given away free after psn appocalypse).
Most ps3 exclusives don't sell too well. Sony really need to rethink the launch windows for their titles.
Most exclusives in general don't sell that much. I think Halo and Gears are really the only games that have really high numbers on the 360.
Forza and Fable sell very big numbers as well. Don't count them out!
There's always games like Metal Gear Solid and Gran Turismo and the Uncharted games. They've all sold multiple millions and are PS3 exclusives. I think it has a more to do with inFamous being a new IP, and not getting as much of the marketing dollar as other franchises. inFamous 2 was barely advertised at all.
Feel the same way. I enjoyed the hell out of Infamous and hope they make a 3rd. The thing about first party exclusives is they don't have to sell as much as multi-platforms to break even or make a profit. Hopefully it was the latter.
This is a good thing. But I would love for SP to make some changes. Part 2 was excellent but it felt like just an extension of 1 with minor tweaks.
For part 3 I would like Cole to take on Injustice League type of villains each with their own unique powers and strengths. Also the whole city should be open to explore.
Can't wait to see what they do.
well whatever the game is, i'll buy it :D i've never been disappointed by Sucker Punch and have bought all their sly and infamous games.
The picture indicates online multiplayer to me, somehow.
The first picture is actually from the "Evil" ending of inFamous 2.
Aww well. Nevermind, then. I never quite finished the game on evil. I did the good ending then got about half way through on bad and lent it to a friend.
Mixed feelings personally, as much as I loved both games I felt I had had enough of Infamous by the end of the game........having said that, if they make another I would definately buy it, one of the most overlooked games series of this generation in my opinion.
hope it follows from the bad ending
I got inFamous 2 free from the subway flash game, still haven' finished it. Too many games.
wow, thats luck.
I have a feel we will see a kara game! I will watch MS program to waist time.
idk how they would make a third one unless they make two campaigns which would actually be kinda cool. but im always pleased with whatever sucker punch makes so i can't wait for their next game.
i think this website is just trying to get hits Spoilers http://www.youtube.com/watc... look at 11:58 its the same screencap taken from the ending of 2
Dammit! You're right. Thanks for crushing my hopes :/
wow...that hurts tho...but thanks for pointing it out man.
True but i would wish people read the article. That photo isn't the photo the article is talking about. There are two more photos. One shows a guy holding a toy gun the other is the developer team about to watch something
Well there is a sequel should be bad ending. Just think how hard the game will be if you fighting a lot of conduits with different powers at the same time. TBH they should just make it an action MMO. All the possibilities in bad ending makes me want one. Cole would probably be the boss but this time your some new conduit.
ok keep guessing on everything and you mite get 1 out 20 right.
I have yet to even play Infamous 2....
You have a treat in store.
