Infamous 3 Storyline Theory, What If infamous Second Son was Never Announced?

GamerFitNation's Gregory Laporte write's "On February 20th Infamous Second Son was announced for the PlayStation 4. While many thought the next infamous title could potentially carry on the Cole McGrath story-line we were treated to a new hero with the ability to control smoke. However, what if Infamous Second Son was never announced? Read my theory for Infamous 3 if they were to continue with Cole McGrath."

Then Sucker Punch would reveal a new Ip instead?

maybe, i love this series to death but i wonder what else they could do

djthechamp241242d ago

from any developer, the possibilities of creating new games are unless

They will continue with Cole...don't worry

They would of called this inFAMOUS 3 if that was the case. They didn't put that lightning bolt question mark there for nothing.

The new game doesn't look like it follows onto any ending which is highly strange in my opinion. They won't even say themselves what ending is cannon which again is strange....what's to hide it's either one or the other.

If it was the bad ending then Conduits would be in control, no humans would be alive and they most certainly wouldn't be in power.

If it was the good ending then no conduits would be alive. Even if it was to come back, 7 years is not enough time for a new generation to develop the conduit gene.

I like to think that it's either

1) Secretly Kessler's time line (Highly unlikely after what we've heard) and thats the twist at the end.

or

2) Continues from an inFAMOUS 2 neutral ending...Cole has defeated the beast, managed to get rid of the plague another way but didn't activate the Ray Sphere or the plague is still around, killed off most humans but the government has found a way to stop/control it which shows us why the government are in control.

If they wanted to do a new hero so badly why didn't they just set the game in a new city while the events on INFAMOUS 2 play out...you know how many games set during inFAMOUS - inFAMOUS 2 they could do with new hero's. There was no need to set it after the second game especially when they aren't continuing with Cole, people love him to much to totally get rid of him

Very nice theory by the way but the whole Kessler thing, the other time line, really needs to be left to hand held games.

I think you are wrong.If it is the good ending all the Conduits don't have to be dead.No one confirmed that every single Conduit on the planet was dead and it is unlikely the device could reach all around the world to kill every Conduit.And that would still leave the people who have the potential to become Conduits later on or people using technology like the mayor did to make his own Conduits. And if it were the bad ending there was no guarantee that the Conduits would win the war between them and humanity so saying that the Conduits would be in control doesn't necessarily have to be true. Jut because they had powers doesn't mean that they would win and the method that Cole used to form them wouldn't leave enough for an enormous army anyway.

Either one of those endings could have led to this future. If they won the war against Cole they would be afraid that more or the remaining Conduits might rise up and threaten the world again and therefore try to keep Conduits in check and if Cole died like in the good ending they would want to make sure nothing like what happened in both cities to happen again so would be especially aggressive against surviving Conduits.It is not so unbelievable and in either scenario Cole would be dead either killed in the war or dead like he was originally when they set off the machine.

The only way Cole could make an appearance is if they are using his body for some reason maybe in some sinister plot to make more super humans or that he was defeated and captured during the Conduit human war an they have him locked away.

"If it is the good ending all the Conduits don't have to be dead.No one confirmed that every single Conduit on the planet was dead and it is unlikely the device could reach all around the world to kill every Conduit."

It's stated in the games many times that it would effect the entire world.

You even see this in the good ending cutscene with the man in Africa holding his wife

Zeke then comments

"Even some people overseas were keeling over, poor b******* must of been Conduits and didn't even know it"

It's pretty clear it effected everyone I mean that was the whole point of the good ending and your sacrifice.

"nd that would still leave the people who have the potential to become Conduits later"

As I've said they would have enough time for a new generation to become conduits. If it was set 30 years after fair enough...but just 7...can't see it happening.

" And if it were the bad ending there was no guarantee that the Conduits would win the war between them and humanity"

:O

Your joking right

All the conduits being activated, Cole as a SUPER conduit AKA the Beast AND the fact humanity is dying of the plague. They'd be wiped out in less then a month. The survivors would be in hiding if there was any.

listenkids1242d ago

Cole is the villain, this is cannon.

Fin.

majiebeast1242d ago

Infamous 3 couldnt have happend the endings are too different, it would mean no more morality system cause bad cole isnt just gonna turn good and good cole isnt just gonna turn bad. Lets see what they can do with Delsin and his smoke/mist abilities.
