Sucker Punch did leave a paper trail for a sequel and all... so where's the latest inFamous game? Should Second Son get a sequel? And should it be on the PS5 at launch?
Unless sucker punch have two teams I think we will be waiting a few years before hearing or any infamous releated news, depends on how ghosts does I would think.
I would love a remake or remaster of the first two, but i think the series is dead.
Why would you think that?!
well Ghost of Tsushima for one, two the infamous games never really sold that well (well enough, but not a system seller like god of war or Uncharted), and three Second Son didn't really set up for a sequel besides the vague "i let conduits loose". It just seems like Sucker Punch want to move on to new ideas.
While I agree there are reasons they wont do it, not yet anyway, 6 mill is pretty good, not many games relative to how many get released get near that number on a single platform, I dont think sales have anything to do with their decision, as for the story, loads of places it could go. Cole is alive after all.
The second game sold faster than even the first one. Why would it be dead? Sony knows it should release a game like that once a generation, thats why there is a delay.
A remaster of the first two would be greatly welcomed.
Don't need remasters IF the PS5 plays PS3&4 games... 🤨
Jon, you know damn will it won’t be ps3 compatible, just stop. Unless you’re willing to pay $900 for it, it won’t ever happen.
@TheSocietalAnomaly there's rumors that it will be backwards compatible with PS3, PS2 and PS1. https://www.psu.com/news/ps...
@TheSocietalAnomaly I think the PS5 will be more than powerful enough to emulate the PS3 already. which means, no native PS3 hardware like the CELL will be needed. however, from recent articles, it seems like Sony is following MS's way of selective encoded emulation instead of native emulation of past last-gen games. so we might get upgraded last-gen games with better IQ and performance but need to wait until Sony enables those games before we will be able to play them.
There is a lot of room for a sequel, SP actually left the door wide open. Spoiler* Perhaps when Reggie was thought to have been killed his conduit genes sparked and saved him? The sequel could be Reggie and Del tracking down all the escaped conduits from Curdun Cay and Reggie coming to grips with his powers. It could even offer a co op campaign. You could do an alternate history Kessler game or explore the period before Second Son?
Ghost of Tshushima baby
I find the inFamous franchise to be a rather strange case... All three main games (and two side-games) were fantastic, and worth playing in themselves. However, the series never really seemed to reach its peak. While inFamous 2 was great (probably my favourite), the story seemed rushed, as though they'd crammed their plans for a trilogy into just a single sequel. Then Second Son felt like the start of a franchise reboot that never really happened. Such a shame. It's not like the series ever performed poorly or got bad reviews.
The problem with infamous, every part have it problem and all share one main problem, which is boring progressing (especially InFamous SS) first two were superior but oddly enough SS have these fast movement while "lightning power" of Cole didn't gave him that flexibility. I really want Cole to return by a way or another then improve upon it giving him Ice, Lightning and other cool features, with. I really find InFamous the most premium package for super power open world game ever.
The generation started with Bang thanks to second sun I'd love for the infamous games to come back but wayore depth is needed I'd love to play a protagonist that's more tied in with the world like Cole was at the start of 1. I enjoyed second son but felt like the entire city was wasted on just being a sandbox of destruction which was pretty but static nothing mattered. I'd love to see the game take more of a narrative approach and build depth into characters
Infamous 1 and 2 where awesome second son is meh, I think my issue with second son is the powers are not as fun as coles
Infamous Second Son was my very first PS4 game. I even bought it several months before owning a PS4, because of a sale or smthg. I loved every bit of it, and I still play it from time to time in such amazement that I'm thinking I can't possibly let myself live whatever life without ever going at least once to the Pacific Western Coast of the USA to visit Seattle, which in the game is painted as one of the coolest city ever (minus those dark towers built by that, erm you know) The previous 2 games were good (well, the first one had unfortunately a city that was way too drab and dreary and lacked things to do as side-missions), but Infamous Second Son (great title btw) was great for a first-batch game, what with all those powers and the choice, again, to be infamous, and was marred only by the fact that the city could have been bigger and allowed for more interaction (like getting in the shuttle, or having more interiors), and the story started abruptly, even for someone who had played the previous instalments. But it was definitely solid enough to warrant a sequel, whenever Sucker Punch are done with the development of Ghost of Tsushima. I wonder if Infamous First Light is worth it, by the way?
Yes First Light is worth it! :)
First Light was fantastic. Shorter than SS, but game play was pretty tight and the graphics effects have yet to be outdone this gen IMO.
Really? Why do the headlines always have to be cringey?
I would not complain about another inFamous game.
Let them release Ghosts of Tsushima first.
This site is the worst...
Doubtful unless they expanded their studio, Ghosts of Tsushima is without doubt cross gen, in fact many titles next year will release on both gen consoles to maximize sales: Cyberpunk 2077, Halo, Assassins Creed and the rumoured Batman game from WB Montreal.
I really miss coles electric powers. If only they could just bring him back or give us a new character with his powers. The smoke and multiple different powers with Delsin was.....eh. Id rather just focus on one power and be able to upgrade it a ton and unlock many skills and whatnot. Quality over quantity.
