The latest issue of the Official Playstation Magazine has made mention in their "Second to None" section (basically the gossip column) that inFamous 2, currently unannounced, will be released sometime in 2010
This and Batman would be on the top of my most wanted list!
Only thing I ask for is that the game isn't rushed to get the $$$$, but take the time and truly make inFamous 2 and Batman 2, not a 1.5 game like many others games have done. Just another AAA to add to the list.
Sucker Punch worked on that game engine for a long time, The first infamous but i do agree that having games on a two year cycle like Uncharted and Resistance can only benefit the final product. The thing about Batman 2 would be that its not running with its own engine so it would be harder to optimize it to a full squeal eg: Gears of War 1 & 2, Bioshock 1 & 2 both running the Unreal engine but when it come to big changes to the game only few are found.
I'm Already Waiting, InFamous was Really Good, I'm sure the Sequel will be better Gamers FTW!!!
Infamous 1 was really really really good.... too bad some people stopped playing after the first few missions for being "boring" .... They really missed out.
Yes!!! Just no more shards please, collecting those still gives me nightmares.
Announcement maybe but I really can't see it releasing until 2011, same with the Killzone 3 rumors. 2 years seems to be the de facto development time for sequels this gen. I just can't see Sony rushing these, there is no need. Any way though I'm lookin forward to continuing Cole's story.
I would buy it right away.
The perfect Summer game.
@solidt12 I wouldn't expect it until closer to the holidays.
Sure, they've got an engine, and art assets they can tweak, but making a whole new game in like a year and a half? That can be done... but I dunno if you can make a *good* game in a year and a half. If they had a lot of good ideas and half-developed code they couldn't finish by release, maybe. They did a very good job on the last one, and I think they'd probably want to make the best game they could. They'd need to make some engine tweaks, too. Sequels need to have better graphics than the original, these days.
Out of all the sequels, Demon's Souls and inFamous is what I really want to see. I hope the sequels will be as big as Among Thieves was to Drakes Fortune too.
I liked Demon Souls, but it kicked my ass to a point where I simply couldn't finish it.
I heard a lot of talk about the putting in online and IMO it would be awesome if they allowed co-op. GTA with superpowers online sounds like an insta-win.
yep co-op would be awesome
This game screams co-op. Make it happen!
I disagree. Most people who have played it would agree that co-op wouldn't really work with it and it would ruin the experience. Plus what would the other person/people be? Another Cole? I say no to co-op in infamous.
It would be more or less like Crackdown if it has coop. Never used the coop in Crackdown, but I hear it was great addition in that game. I'm interested if they do different powers besides electricity in the next game. Sucker Punch made it sound like that they would consider that for future games in the series.
I agree with beef, only because inFamous never set up that any of your mates are like Cole. However if the co-op is there with a new twist, then by all means. Or the co-op is a normal person, so Zeke can drive, shoot etc. Online I'm unsure of - if there were 5-6 other types of powers it would be something special, but to have 16 Cole's running around I don't know. Either way - 1st Day
It's like you guys never played the game! Co-op could easily be a Cole from the future returning to help his previous self! That is pretty much what the first game is about! Kessler and Cole teaming up!
Yea.. i guess i'm one of the people who thinks games like Infamous, online and coop doesnt sound right.... But i really really hope i'm wrong !
The end of Infamous (Good Ending) was wicked!!! I would want to see a sequel @Alpha-Male22 That would be freaking awesome.
I wanted them to take a bit longer for this one... It's not even a year old yet. I can't see the quality bar being raised much.
Most of the Dev time was making the engine. This time the engine just needs some tweaking, and anti-aliasing haha. A year sounds very doable.
Sly Cooper I, II, and III were released in 2002, 2004, and 2005 respectively. It is quite possible for them to make another infamous for the 2010 holiday.
So when a PS3 exclusive game gets a sequel a year after its release, ITS OK??? But not for Left 4 Dead 2? I wouldn't want them to release infamous year after its release. 2 years=Better quality.
I never said I even liked the L4D series... In fact, I hate it. I'm just saying I wish they'd have taken longer, but if they feel they have a game with enough new content to warrant a 2... Go for it.
Most of the people hating on L4D2 were valve fanboys that felt valve was releasing what should have been DLC as a full game. If you know of valve's support for other franchises then you would probably agree that part 2 should have been DLC. What was the difference between the two games? 4 new characters, a few new zombies, Melee weapons and 5 new levels.
Loved the first one, now I can't freaking wait for the second one! :D
The first made my summer gaming sessions really fun.
... but I feel it's a little too soon. Maybe they mean fiscal 2010. This time next year makes a little more sense to me. But hey, I'll take sooner than later.
All of the games that have made an appearance in the Uncharted2 multiplayer are all going to get a release date this year. Thus starting the hype-train for said games, and I am Hyped
i wish I2 would come out but i dont want to be unpolished so ill be patient for then next and hope that SUCKER PUNCH takes there time cause i really liked the first one.
The first one came out, they built the engine from the ground up and that was 75% of the work. Now they dont have to concentrate on the Engine and they can just optimize it and give it improvements like UC2 did over UC1. I except amazing things from Sucker Punch this time around. Things can only get better from this point forward, everyone who's anyone has already gotten to know the architecture so games will be flying in much faster.
