Earlier this year, Sucker Punch Productions, the makers of the InFamous and Sly Cooper series, released their samurai epic, Ghost of Tsushima into the world.
The game released to both critical and commercial success and quickly joined the long list of defining titles on the PlayStation 4. Adding to a list that includes games like, Bloodborne, The Last of Us:Part II, Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War, just to name a few.
Sucker Punch wasn’t finished with the games original release however as they also shocked the gaming populace by adding a free multiplayer mode, dubbed Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, just this month.
And again, Sucker Punch doesn’t seem content with ending there, as a recent job posting, indicates that the team is full steam ahead on a sequel to Ghost of Tsushima.
The job listing specifically makes mention of hiring someone with a “desire to write stories set in feudal Japan” and “knowledge of feudal Japanese history.”
This brings us to 1 of either 2 conclusions.
The first, being that Sucker Punch is making a feudal Japan era, Sly Cooper game. Which, unfortunately, doesn’t require much explanation as to why that outcome seems highly unlikely, (even though, I’d personally love to see them take another crack at that raccoon some day.) but the second option seems far more plausible.
That outcome, of course being a sequel to Ghost of Tsushima. The idea doesn’t seem too far fetched as, story wise there’s still a lot that can be tackled since Jin could theoretically head for the mainland or even find himself swept up in the second invasion of his home island.
Either way, this job listing should excite gamers. Can anyone actually imagine how mind blowing this potential sequel will look on Sony’s shiny new, next generation console?
All in all, this certainly acts as an indication, that we’ve yet to see the last of Jin Sakai.
