What’s Next For Cole: Possible Theories For InFamous 3 (If It Happens)

Was Infamous 2 the end of the story for Cole? Perhaps, but what if the story could go on? GP Editor Sean Dimagiba discusses what a third game in the Infamous series could possibly be like. (Culture, inFamous 2, PS3)

I want an inFamous 3 but I hope it will happen next gen, right now Im very much looking forward to Sucker Punch's new IP.

Infamous, as much as I want to play more, shouldn't have a sequel.

Infamous 2 closed things up nicely, and magically forcing Cole back into more story seems unnecessary. It would feel like Halo 4 again.
iamnsuperman  +   863d ago
I agree that Infamous 2 closed things up and Cole's story should be left alone and to be honest I really do not want to play as anybody else. How much I would love to play another Infamous game carrying on the story after a an ending that wrapped things up doesn't seem right.

I hope it happens!
majiebeast  +   863d ago
I doubt it will happen there is just such a difference between good and bad ending plus suckerpunch is working on a new IP. A spinoff for the vita might be a idea.
Fylus  +   863d ago
The endings may be drastically different, but they could work off of either. With the evil ending, well, that could be obvious. Thousands of super powered conduits? Yeah.

As for the good ending; A lightning bolt strike the boat at the very end, then the lightning clearly makes the shape of a question mark.

Either way, I cannot be more hyped up for a new Infamous game:)

I truly hope the bad ending is the good ending. I can see Cole being the big bad boss in new game.
Cajun Chicken  +   863d ago
Tricky, personally, everything kind of concluded, but this is a very good franchise.
TopDudeMan  +   863d ago
I wonder which ending will be accepted as cannon. I assume it's the good ending?
Erudito87  +   863d ago
the good ending he sacrifices himself so he's dead. It's more likely to follow from the bad and be like a world domination type thing
Fylus  +   863d ago
I don't believe he's dead. Go to YouTube and watch a video of the good ending. Pay close attention to the final lightning bolt. It strikes the boat Cole is on, then makes the shape of a question mark;)
RedDead  +   863d ago
The single most overrated Franchise this gen./ A below average Tps in an open world.

Electrics cool though amiright?
supraking951  +   863d ago
i think that title belongs to Gears of War, after part1 it just went downhill from there, linear gameplay, same of everything with a storyline that just got stupid and pointless.

First off I want to say, in my opinion sale wise is fine.
It pass their predecessor and enough for a sequel for their fans.
Now to the possible sequel plot, I'm not sure if I'm right about this, but I do recall playing Infamous 2 the second time as the Bad Karma, and I remember one mission that Cole mention to Nix that he has a brother.
Does anyone remember that part of the story?

Yes Cole has a brother. But there is no evidence that he was a conduit or anywhere near any of the action throughout the game so he wouldn't have been exposed to anything involving conduits. He's most likely just an average human.

I can almost guarantee we won't see or hear from Cole's brother in any future release. That doesn't matter though, because I'm pretty damn positive Cole is still alive.
AusRogo  +   863d ago
I really hope they make a 3rd one. I love the franchise and Cole is one of my favourite characters this gen!
smashcrashbash  +   863d ago
Well if we are talking evil ending most likely some sort of fight for power between the remaining Conduit. Good ending I am guessing lighting strikes Cole, he revives and find out the world isn't as Conduit free as he thought it was. I am thinking RFI gave people powers seeing that it was based on the same tech that made the Ray Sphere and gave Cole new powers.
Hicken  +   863d ago
I was thinking that as well: that he was revived, that the RFI either didn't kill all the Conduits, or caused formerly normal people to be Conduits, instead. That'd be one way for the good ending to continue.

There's also the whole issue of time travel. It's a power that Cole never acquires, though the- by the end of the second game- weaker Kessler had access to. The RFI affects the whole world, but does it also affect time? We know this stuff affects genetics, but we don't really know a whole lot about the tech behind the Ray Sphere and RFI, even in-universe. Who knows what type of side effects could pop up?

The evil ending would work best as a story about a new character. But I don't think I need to elaborate on that, as most people have done that pretty well.
JewyMcJew  +   863d ago
Infamous has some of the best gameplay mechanics (except malay attacks) of any game I have ever played.

I don't care what the scenario is, just get me back into Cole's universe.
house  +   863d ago
i agree with the game play it was one of the best, it would be cool with they made a prequel and told the story before he had to go threw time and was forced to time travel
pbasson  +   863d ago
InFamous 3. I came out of the last one disappointed, I really did think the Beast was going to be a monster ass fight, like Kessler said In which he was sorta right, but how he bigged it up it was too much hype. The gameplay of the last game was amazing, I really want to play more & see how much more Cole can do, Im sure the Beast isnt the only story we can hear about Cole.
labaronx  +   863d ago
COLE versus robots
telekeneticmantis  +   863d ago
Would love a Infamous 3
Infamous is one of the top Franchises this gen, very underrated. Cool character in Streetfighter X Tekken also.
WeskerChildReborned  +   863d ago
I think it will be a prequel with Kessler as protagonist cause i don't really see them making a sequel with the ending of Infamous 2 and if they did an evil ending, You would already be a unstoppable power. So i think the right thing to do is make a prequel where you play as Kessler before he wen't back in time to prepare Cole for the beast.
Fylus  +   863d ago
Cole isn't dead. Question mark shaped lightning bolt man.
WeskerChildReborned  +   863d ago
Yea but that doesn't exactly mean he isn't dead. Hopefully he's still alive though.
vividi  +   863d ago
what next for Cole? kick kratos ass ufffff

Please no. Part 2 was a snooze fest.
kneon  +   863d ago
You must be narcoleptic as it certainly wasn't the games fault you were snoozing.
user5467007  +   863d ago
Jeez why does everyone want to continue from the bad ending, look I know we all had a choice to be good or bad but I bet theres more people out there who chose to be good, it just sort of fit Coles personality.

I mean yeah we can just continue from the bad ending but then that means that the good Cole players have created will be for nothing. They didn't add a question mark lightning bolt for nothing you know

At least if they went with the good ending players can choose to be bad again. I wouldn't say bad Cole was an all out villain he was more like an anti hero who did things his way despite the sacrafices involved.
Y_5150  +   863d ago
These type of articles better stop! It's hyping me up to the roof!!!!
BitbyDeath  +   863d ago
If we do get one i hope we still get to keep the ice jump move, that was awesome XD
Ezetta  +   862d ago
John White would never become the Beast if it wasn't for Kessler blowing up the city and giving Cole powers - which he did to prepare Cole for the Beast. So, the Beast is still on the way, or it's just a huge plot hole.
