Rumor: "Sly 5: Master of Thieves" coming to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita

A poster suggests that a new Sly game is in development. Called Sly 5: Master of Thieves, it will apparently be released on both PS4 and Vita. (PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 58

This I am looking forward too! :O

Please tell me people don't ACTUALLY believe this is real?

1. It looks fake. It clearly looks fan made. Just like the recent God of War Redemption poster, it's amateur and fake. They also said that was coming to PS4 and Vita, and yep, fake.

2. The only reason it looks truly 'convincing' is that it's taken from behind a glass frame. You can't clearly see all the little details that would reveal its lack of authenticity.

3. The last game wasn't called Sly 4, it was called Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. So this wouldn't be called Sly 5.

I'm thinking of creating a Heavenly Sword 2 poster just to troll people. It just seems to be that easy.

I NEED a Sly game on PS4. This is cruel
DigitalRaptor  +   293d ago
There probably will be one.

But I was just pointing out that people need to read more into these things before they go ahead believing them.
delicia  +   293d ago
Also, every PS4 game supposedly works on Vita, so why market it as a cross platform game?

Very good points. Bubbles for you.

I love me some Sly cooper.
sonic989  +   293d ago
i hope its true sly 1 ,2 ,3 and thieves in time were fantastic in my opinion

Sadly proven to be fake.

Nooo :(
Dirtnapstor  +   293d ago
Agreed! But I'd bet when the PS4 is officially released, there will be a ton of surprise announcements--ala Uncharted 4, and perhaps a new Sly!?
r21  +   293d ago
Knew it was too good to be true. As much as I would love another Sly game, Sly 4 did not do well, only selling roughly 0.26 million, total sales of vita and ps3 :C
Undrey  +   293d ago
It sold well enough I'm sure, VGChartz isn't very reliable, and they don't count digital sales.
grassyknoll  +   293d ago
I wouldn't say it was a massive success, but it's budget was probably far smaller than your average game.
abzdine  +   293d ago
it's for me one of the best 2013 games!
a refreshing fun platforming game with a solid story and charismatic characters.

too bad this turned out to be a fake reveal, but i hope Sanzaru are up to something Sly related
r21  +   293d ago
Yeah, maybe they did sell a bit more better than what vgchartz stated. I really do want a new Sly 5 but Sly 4 had little to no marketing compared to the other exclusive that Sony was crazy advertising(GoW Ascension) so low sales could be true.
GameCents  +   293d ago
After the critical and commercial meh that 4 was, I'm not suprised in the least that SONY aren't in any rush to push out another one.
matrixman92  +   293d ago
I thought the last one kind of bombed, I dont think they would get another one out this quick
theChickGamer  +   293d ago
I wish this way true!
b_one  +   293d ago
just look about sales of previous part..
ironicgamer01  +   293d ago
Can't wait.

Games like Sly, Ratchet & Clank, Jak & Daxter, and the upcoming Knack are precisely why I prefer Playstation over Xbox. You just cannot find titles like that on Xbox.
_QQ_  +   293d ago
Insomniac is on the sexbox now:/ ,I only pray JAK 4 comes out soon. Knack looked average as hell i wouldn't even put it close to the big 3.

Considering the Man behind Knack
Also gave direction to the core formula of both Jak games as well as Rachet. I'd say Knack is on it's way to being fun. Cerny is the sole reason why platformers of that nature thrive on the PlayStation family of products...
Sevir  +   292d ago
Insomniac is still working with Sony.
They may not have announced anything yet, but that 18 year relationship hasn't squandered, we've gotten 21 games from insomniac across 3 platforms over 18 years verses the the 1 exclusive and multiplatform title the Xbox brand is getting and has already gotten.

let them express their independence, They already said they have multiple projects in the pipeline, no one saw Sunset Overdrive coming, I reckon we'll be similarly surprised when they do an exclusive for Sony as well as continuing the their multiplatform franchise.
_QQ_  +   292d ago
I don't care who made it, knack still looks average based on what we have seen, and yeah no way Insom is making the R&C Movie without some PS folow up game.
WickedLester  +   292d ago
Jak is made by Naughty Dog, not Insomniac.
_QQ_  +   292d ago
I never said it was made by insomniac...
Ares84HU  +   293d ago
This will make a lot of people happy.

My dream games would be an old style Tomb Raider and a Crash Bandicoot game.

They will never happen but one can dream.
truthteller  +   293d ago
Who would do something like this? Just go on the internet and spread lies?
GdaTyler  +   293d ago
That's the internet for ya.
GdaTyler  +   293d ago
It's fake. :(
latincooker214  +   293d ago
damn it Nooooooooooooooo ¡(...
CRASHBASHUK  +   293d ago
god of war and now this? looks like its going to be a great gamescom in aug and MM are up to something to
matrixman92  +   293d ago
this and the GoW rumor were both confirmed fake
kratoz1209  +   293d ago
Hope so :D i love the sly games
_QQ_  +   293d ago
As long as Sucker punch makes it.. i'm a huuuuge Sly fan but 4 is a disapointment.I remember watching the el Jefe Demo the first time thinking "yep the series is in good hands"but that didn't hold true.4 was good and fun but not anything higher than a 7.5
Riderz1337  +   293d ago
I want a Sly/Ratchet and Clank/Jak and Daxter game on the PS4. COME ON SONY! Bring back the old school mascots.

After the fantastic job Sanzaru did on Thieves in Time im looking forward to the next Sly Cooper game on psvita, hopefully Sanzaru takes over the franchise.
latincooker214  +   293d ago
well said Riderz that right there we be awesome come on sony bring back the mascots :)
Jaqen_Hghar  +   293d ago
A man is surprised after sales of Sly 4 but also ecstatic! Perhaps a company realized that they left Sly 4 to die with 0 advertising and see the potential that still exists for the franchise. A man thought Sly 4 was the best in the series but also sold 5 people on it personally just by bringing its existence to the attention of old fans.
Magnus  +   293d ago
Ill be all over a new Sly Cooper game any day I think its a great franchise. Now if Sony could make a new Blasto game or a new Wild Arms game and a new Legend of Dragoon my PS4 would be very busy.
Rhezin  +   293d ago
Man I need a new game series like this. Is sly worth it? I was really into Crash Bandicoot because of the humor and just straight up fun I had playing it, and in the last several years, Ratchet and Clank because of the awesome weapons. What's the hook for this game?
danny818  +   292d ago
Nice. I liked the thieves in time game. It should be priced the same

I just beat 1 and 2 over the last few months. Then I did 3 right after, my god is it so different. All these challenges and what not killed it. The controls are very hard to get down as they are always changing with each task. The game mechanics are not all there either. Sadly, no Plat trophy coming from this one..... :(
