Sucker Punch interested in creating inFamous 3, but does not confirm its development

Say they are very happy with their working relationship with Sony. -
The development team behind the recent serious Sly or inFamous, Sucker Punch, has declared himself very satisfied with the working relationship we have with Sony, and therefore do not rule develop in the near future the third installment of its successful series of games inFamous action.

"We'll see where we go next," says the study's co-founder, Bruce Oberg, the average British Eurogamer when asked about the possibility of creating inFamous 3. "We have a great relationship with them [Sony] and adore the PlayStation platform. Not lying when I say that for us is a killer technology platform to work with. "Moreover, he continues," the media, marketing, and also the approach, allowing us to make the game we want to do is really incredible. "

Do not forget either that the license Sony inFamous rests not on its creators, who have stated that it was "a small price to pay" for the "freedom to make the game you want."

one of the most underrated new ips this gen

the mind boggles what sucker punch can do with infamous 3 on the ps4!!!

Ezz20131975d ago

it's not underrated
it's an awesome games sold very well and scored very well too

can't wait for infamous 3 on ps3 or ps4

IAMERROR1975d ago

I actually agree with you. Not underrated, sure it's no Gran Turismo/God of War in terms of sales but it does sell decently well (over 1mill). Scoring mid-80s on MC isn't bad at all.

Campy da Camper1975d ago

The only franchise i have plats or 100% (festival) in. This series is proably my most favorite series this gen.

admiralvic1975d ago (Edited 1975d ago )


While it might not have an insane number of sales, you have to factor in freebies too. inFAMOUS was offered as part of Welcome Back in the US and Europe too (I think EU anyway), plus inFAMOUS 2 has been part of US / Europe Plus since E3 (thats 6 / 7 months!). So I find it hard to believe the series is really "underrated" when most people are making a choice not to play them. (lets be fair here, Sony has been pushing Plus for a while now and many people have access to friends accounts, so a good percent of people have had access to at least 1 of these games for free for some period of time.)

inveni01975d ago

I love that they say, "We'll see where we go next." They've been done with inFamous 2 for a long time now. They're working on SOMETHING, for sure.

inFamous 1 & 2 are my only platinum-ed games. Great fun.

Thirty3Three1974d ago

OR Vita!

Or Vita + PS3, Or Vita + PS4 :)

Keep an open mind, friend!

I got Infamous: Collection. And in my opinion the series are not underrated. They are pretty decent, but not great. Sure they have a great concept, but Sucker Punch do not use it.

Red_Orange_Juice1974d ago

you sure live up to your name dude

Daver1975d ago

Infamous 1 was a lot better than 2 in my opinion but I hope they make a third anyway.

dgonza401975d ago

It was pretty neck and neck. The graphics were a lot better in 2, but 1 had a stronger twist. On the other hand, 2 did a better job of having me invested in the characters and the endings were a lot stronger. I think the gameplay refinements and added powers in 2 was what made it that much better than 1. Personal opinion, though.

What sucks is them not keeping the original voice actor and character design of the first game

AdmiralSnake1975d ago

Nah....infamous 2 in my opinion was much better period.

Graphics, gameplay, and the story itself. Plus the characters were a lot better to.

JewyMcJew1975d ago

I tend to agree. While the graphics on 2, specially particle effects, were fantastic, the addition of melay combat really hurt the experience.

Still one of my favorite games of all time due solely to its 'fun factor'.

Daver1975d ago


The graphics were of course better, the story tho? not at all not even the endings. The twists in the first one made the story a lot better, the boss at the end, there was many more nice cutscenes which the 2nd was lacking. I like the new powers tho but it was maybe a bit too much and the 2 characters which gives the new abilities were lame.

Im not saying it was a bad game because I am a fan of this IP, I just didnt have the great feeling like when I have played the first 1.

2pacalypsenow1974d ago (Edited 1974d ago )

they made the 2nd one too big and confusing at least for me but still im working on my plat for it :-)

stage881974d ago

I have to agree. I much preferred Infamous 1. I got it free with the Welcome Back programme and really kicked myself for not getting it sooner. It is one of my fav games this gen and I have the platinum as well as completing it multiple times.

Your name says it all my friend. inFamous is definitely one of the better ip's to come out this gen. I for one can not wait for the next installment.

th3n00bg4m3r1974d ago

Climbing is not advanced, dialogues are cheesy, characters doesn't have their own personalty they just get ill and lay around on the street, they also doesn't do a lot of activities they just walk, get ill or drive, that is about it and...ETC that I forgot to mention.

BlaqMagiq241974d ago (Edited 1974d ago )


Climbing is not advanced? There aren't a lot of games where you can climb almost anything maybe aside from the Assassin's Creed games.

Dialogue is cheesy? I didn't see anything wrong with it. It sounds realistic enough to me and you can definitely see the personalities in the characters.

As for the people that are ill and laying on the street they're like that for a reason. Remember the explosion that killed thousands and made others sick?

They don't do many activities except for getting ill and drive because they're normal people. What did you expect them to do? Have powers like Cole?

You don't have good reasons here.

BlackPrince 421974d ago


I'm sorry but that couch scene in 2 was just perfect. Perfect characterization between two guys.

th3n00bg4m3r1974d ago

Climbing is super easy, just smash the X button and you will never fail, the animations are average too. The climbing is not as advanced as Uncharted for example.
And when I said characters I mean the minor ones. Play Red Dead Redemption and you will see what I mean.
I remember the explosion but cmon the characters do like 3 activities. And there isn't a lot of interaction.

Hopefully they create a new IP first.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1975d ago (Edited 1975d ago )

It will happen.

IAmLee1975d ago

oh dear god. they need to make this happen. InFamous is a quality series so far, and can only get better..

animegamingnerd1975d ago

i am gonna go as far as to say ifamous was sony's best new IP is gen

Rainstorm811974d ago

That's Uncharted for me personally ,but hopefully they do a third infamous the first two were excellent.

Tontus1974d ago

LittleBigPlanet for me personally.

Y_51501974d ago

InFamous totally shocked my interest when I first heard of it. I was beyond hyped. It delivered tremendously, it's not just my favorite new Sony IP this gen. It's my favorite Sony IP ever!

Sorry I'm a huge inFamous fan. :P

DigitalAnalog1975d ago (Edited 1975d ago )

I disagree. I doubt the budget for this game exceeds that of Uncharted and that game was made with only 20 million dollars. If anything, it's received extremely well as a new IP franchise this gen.

Tontus1974d ago

What Uncharted game cost just $20 million? The first? Maybe. I know the second one cost more than double that and the 3rd was A LOT more than the second. Almost $8,000,000 of UC3's budget was spent on marketing in the UK alone... Imagine how much marketing worldwide itself cost let alone the cost to develop the game.

The inFAMOUS games don't seem very expensive to make, they may not sell blockbuster numbers like Gran Turismo or God of War but it's obviously making money for Sony otherwise they wouldn't have bought the studio.

DigitalAnalog1974d ago

No, the developers did state that all the Uncharted(s) aside from GA all run in the same budget more or less. It's just that the first game had more resources into building the engine.

ATi_Elite1975d ago

Infamous = 2.55

Infamous 2 = 1.52

Sucker punch needs to find a way to make Infamous a Exclusive that gamers wanna buy and not just RENT!

I say add more RPG elements to it to go along with the Huge sandbox and fast pace action.

showtimefolks1974d ago

Sucker punch have such a small team yet they make such great games. At one time DO team was under 50 people and now I think it's still under 100

Can't wait to find out what they have been doing since infamous 2

bobtheimpaler1974d ago

I still need to finish part 2 and get all trophies for both games.

It's an excellent series and I can't wait to see what they would do with part 3.

maximaz1974d ago

Give me all the thumbdowns you want but I'll just come out and say it - I hated Infamous. The story took itself so seriously, it overflowed with cheese, the writing was laughably game-y, plot was convoluted, the characters cartoony, the action was boring as all hell (basically a gun replaced by lightning, including a freaking sniper rifle, which doesnt even sound fun), the enemy variety was close to none, climbing was tedious (the process itself), interaction with NPCs was nearly non-existent, side missions were all completely bare-bones and uninteresting, etc. After playing Lara Croft and the Guardian of light, I was bored out of my mind with this game. My honest opinion.

THC CELL1975d ago

Yes, give him full telekinesis this time and ability to control people

Conzul1975d ago

by the end of inFamous 1 I realized that what the game needed most is a dynamic destruction system, like DMM or Frostbite or similar.

Those powers were just begging to tear up the world!

IAmLee1975d ago

He has electrical powers, not mind control? :')

jocomat91975d ago

well he can read electric pulsesw left in dead people minds so its a possibility. Imo there should be flying or teleportation in the next one

HarryMasonHerpderp1975d ago

Infamous would make an awesome comic book or TV series.
Cole is just a really cool super hero (unless you're evil).
Would love to see the IP being used in different media.

DragonKnight1975d ago

InFamous 1 would make a kickass movie in my opinion. If they followed the story from the game exactly, then they'd have a good story I think. It'd also be a good example of a game and a movie about the game actually being good.

HarryMasonHerpderp1975d ago (Edited 1975d ago )

Would be so cool if they actual did that.
The start of the game is a really good set up for a movie, where Cole's just delivering that package doing his day job then BOOM!
Cole coming to terms with his new powers and some funny banter with Zeke, the fight with Sasha, Zeke betraying Cole with the Ray Sphere, fight with Kessler, Trish's death, oh man it would make an awesome movie. It could end with the Beast turning up too ready for the sequel.

Never knew that 0_0
will be picking them up! thanks for the info =)

J86blum1975d ago

The game is based off two series of comic books, DMZ and No mans land, and then there was six issues of inFamous comic book. Maybe those will hold you over for a bit.

HeavenlySnipes1974d ago

There is a mini series of comic books detailing what happened in between InFanous 1 and 2.

It deals with Sasha, Alden etc

I would have preferred they put that in the game because people that jump from InFanoys to InFamous 2 will be left wondering why all past ties are no longer discussed

creeping judas1975d ago

I loved the first inFamous, thought it was the greatest game when it came out. But for some reason inFamous 2 just didn't do it for me?

dc11975d ago

infamous 1 was a much better game.
However 2 was no slouch.

Campy da Camper1975d ago

I really liked festival of blood, too!

J86blum1975d ago

o.O that makes no sense. inFamous 2 was far better then the first, from world design, feeling of controls, pacing, graphics, upgrade system, story, moral choice options, and not every character having pin point accuracy on you.

TheFreak1975d ago (Edited 1975d ago )

They ruined Cole's voice it's really shit and the game is way too easy imo. Still a good game, but expected a little more.

I am currently at the end of my 1st playthrough on hard.

mt1975d ago

I guess I was the only person who thought infamous 2 is way better than infamous 1

animegamingnerd1975d ago

i thought the story was better in infamous 1 but everything else was better in 2

JewyMcJew1975d ago

Your not alone. Too much hand-to-hand combat.

DO IT SUCKER PUNCH! We need more inFamous. Even if it's someone other than Cole McGrath you could make it based on Cole's legacy if need be. I love the inFamous series, Kessler was one of the best villains of this gen. He represented a true grey scale that you do often see in games. At least Sucker Punch want to do it, so that's good. It may not be confirmation that it's in development, but to me it's confirmation that it will likely be in development one day. Sucker Punch are truly quality developers and among the few that actually listen to fans.

Conzul1975d ago

Glad they want to make 3, I don't think I can ever get enough of the inFamous franchise.

DragonKnight1975d ago

Nor can I. The inFamous series is one of my favourites of the gen. In a gen filled with terrible games, terrible media, and the "accessibility" effect, it's great to see that developers like Sucker Punch can still knock one out of the park. I would like to see an inFamous game with a different power. Maybe flame based. Now that would be epic. Hurling fireballs around, created flaming tornadoes, that kind of thing.
