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." (Dev, Industry, Next-Gen, PS3, Sony, Sucker Punch)

one of the most underrated new ips this gen

the mind boggles what sucker punch can do with infamous 3 on the ps4!!!
Ezz2013  +   740d 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
IAMERROR  +   740d 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 Camper  +   740d ago
The only franchise i have plats or 100% (festival) in. This series is proably my most favorite series this gen.
admiralvic  +   740d 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.)

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.

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_Juice  +   739d ago
you sure live up to your name dude
Daver  +   740d ago
Infamous 1 was a lot better than 2 in my opinion but I hope they make a third anyway.
dgonza40  +   740d 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
AdmiralSnake  +   740d 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.
JewyMcJew  +   740d 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'.
Daver  +   740d 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.
2pacalypsenow  +   739d ago
they made the 2nd one too big and confusing at least for me but still im working on my plat for it :-)

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.
hulk_bash1987  +   740d ago

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.
th3n00bg4m3r  +   739d 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.
BlaqMagiq24  +   739d 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.

I'm sorry but that couch scene in 2 was just perfect. Perfect characterization between two guys.
th3n00bg4m3r  +   739d 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.

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
DigitalAnalog  +   740d 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.

Tontus  +   739d 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.
DigitalAnalog  +   739d 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_Elite  +   740d 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.
showtimefolks  +   739d 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
bobtheimpaler  +   739d 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.
maximaz  +   739d 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.

Conzul  +   740d 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!

He has electrical powers, not mind control? :')
jocomat9  +   740d 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
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   740d 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.
DragonKnight  +   740d 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.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   740d 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 =)

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.
HeavenlySnipes  +   739d 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

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?

However 2 was no slouch.
Campy da Camper  +   740d ago

J86blum  +   740d 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.
TheFreak  +   740d 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.

DragonKnight  +   740d ago
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.
Conzul  +   740d ago
Glad they want to make 3, I don't think I can ever get enough of the inFamous franchise.
DragonKnight  +   740d 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.

Sucker Punch interested in creating inFamous 3
And I am interested in buying inFamous 3 as soon as possible! :)
leahcim  +   740d ago
iNFamous was great really, but clearly they are not happy whit its performance (sales), looking for a new ip its the obvious option.

Sucker Punch why don't you try whit an RPG ?
ZoyosJD  +   739d ago
The series did fine in terms of sales. The second game was digitally available day 1, I believe. And with so many people getting into the series for free it has a fair amount of name recognition.

Considering the ending of the second game and how much they have already changed Cole, a new main character could be good for the series.

After playing Gravity Rush and AC Liberation, I could only think of the possibilities of a new Infamous.

As far as RPG mechanics go, sure make a huge arrangement of different powers available. But their games are far to action oriented to be purely "RPG".

And really, with an RPG from them you'd probably be underwhelmed, and I'd probably be upset.
Perjoss  +   740d ago
"but does not confirm its development"

That's a shame. I've never played an Infamous game but I've always liked the look of them. To look on the bright side I suppose I could pick them both up really cheap now and have some fun.

You won't know what hit you, especially if you take the EVIL route through both games.

That would be a really strong argument for next playstation if it's announced. Have a new ip for a new console, then bring back cole after they're familiar with the ps4 and make it the best it can be.
BanBrother  +   739d ago
I'd agree with you if it were an FPS. But we need an Infamous game. To me, Prototype sucked (sorry to the fans lol), and while Crackdown was brilliant at the time, Crackdown 2 was a major letdown, and dare I say a step in the wrong direction.

Seeing as Microsoft have no intentions of making a good Crackdown game anytime soon, and Prototype isn't that good IMO, I'd be very pleased at another Infamous announcement. Awesome Graphics and Gameplay made me feel like a badass, not many games can do that. Plus...next-gen particle effects will be amazing.

Yeah, i did but you've seen both endings right? inFamous 2 worked well cause inFamous 1 had the same ending albeit different perspectives. See what i mean?
Conzul  +   740d ago
Guessing he didn't see the lightning -_-
kneon  +   740d ago
That's the problem with these kinds of games, either you have very different endings and make continuing the series difficult or impossible, or you make all endings pretty much the same and only change minor details like Mass Effect did.

It's not practical to create a game based on each of the two completely different endings, that would be too much work, it would really be two different games. So the only option if they want to continue with the same characters is to pick one ending and go with it. Or they just introduce new characters in the same universe, though even that is difficult since the world is fundamentally different in the two endings.

@t what
See COD, assassins creed, Mario,madden, any other franchise with a number after it.

If it sells sequels will be made. I would rather have them wait until ps4 to release another infamous game however these guys would make a great superhero game. (Spider-Man/dc universe))

They could go and make a game like d.c universe in a sandbox world without the mmo style play and it would be a totally different experience.

They should add some fun easter eggs and cheat codes, just to give it even more replay value.

Lightning Motercycle

abillity to start a civil war anti heros vs hero supporters
abillity to power up air planes with electricity and fly them with you on top of it.

I'd like to see a mode where you can create a player and select what power you want from a list of 50 or more, when you beat an enemy you're given the option of taking their power (which takes time to extract) or flee if too many others are around.

Like say you start off with the classic electricity ability but shoot someone out of the sky who is flying and extract their ability so now you can both fly and shoot electricity.

Or better yet have everyone start out with a random power so that way you have to think a bit more about strategy each game and also will mix things up a bit for exciting powers like being able to rise from the dead (providing your power doesn't get taken while in the dead state) to simply being able to climb a building.

Infamous 3 is a must!!!! I loved the first one (probably my fave game this generation I thought the story rocked!!!) I loved the second one too. Lol I even pre-ordered the psn version. I believe someone mentioned this before but, I think an Infamous movie needs to be made. If its done well and follows the story I think it would be great!
Kidmyst  +   739d ago
I bought Infamous 1 when 2 was announced because it was one of those games on my radar to play. So glad I did, love both games and 2 was better than 1. I sure hope they make a 3rd! Great IP
