When Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time ended with that cliffhanger of an ending, fans of the series didn’t expect for the series to go AWOL, leaving our favorite Thief stuck in the Egyptian era.
After having his film canceled and the TV show series hasn’t been talked about in quiet some time now. It seems all hope is lost for Sly and his gang. Son when Sanzaru Games’ Mat Kraemer joined Greg Miller’s Kinda Funny Games Daily show, Mr. Miller had to ask why the team who worked on the fourth (and final?!) Sly Cooper had ‘forsaken’ Sly to Ancient Egypt!
Mat Kraemer: We love Sly. I’ll tell you a tidbit of information. The original first episode of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time was suppose to be Egypt in Sly Tutankhamen and Egypt was going to be a DLC episode. That was the intention and we never got to finish that out. I do [and the team] at Sanzaru have the story and the whole episode done on paper form.
We would love to come back to that world. I hate leaving him there and it’s the question we get the most. So all I can is that if you guys want more Sly Cooper let Sony know. We are always ready to dig into that and it was a great franchise to work on. It was a great project.
Only one problem. Fans have been letting Sony know since 2013 that they want Sanzaru Games or SOMEONE to finish the series yet those request have fallen upon deaf ears. Sorry, Brah.
You can listen to Mat spill the beans at 53:37! Do you want more Sly Cooper in your life?
