Since Sucker Punch’s formation nearly 25 years ago, the studio has developed multiple beloved series like InFamous and Sly Cooper. Now, as the studio shifts its focus toward a new IP, these franchises won’t be receiving new entries in the near future.
In a statement published on the studio’s website, Sucker Punch thanked fans for their support and laid out some of its plans for the future. According to the statement, the team is working on a new project that requires the full studio’s attention, so there are currently no Sly Cooper or InFamous projects in the works at Sucker Punch or at any other studios.

However, Sucker Punch clarified that it isn’t done with these beloved franchises forever and that it would “never say never to re-opening those doors down the road.”
Alongside this announcement, Sucker Punch revealed a few minor updates to InFamous games that will roll out soon. According to the statement, the studio will relocate the InFamous 2 UGC servers to prolong their lifespan, though they “will eventually need to sunset these.”
Additionally, the studio will add the Cole’s Legacy DLC for InFamous Second Son to the PlayStation Store.
“Thank you to everyone for an incredible 24+ years of support,” the statement finishes. “Your love and appreciation are what fuel us to keep making new games and new worlds, and we look forward to continuing to bring new and exciting ideas to life for many years to come. We’re not ready to talk about whatever might be next, but we hope you’ll keep following us whenever we’re ready to share more.”
Sucker Punch’s newest title is Ghost of Tsushima, an open-world game set in medieval Japan during the Mongol invasion. Ghost of Tsushima was received with an incredibly positive reception, and the studio looks to continue the franchise in some capacity. A recent job listings on its website hinted the studio’s next game will be another open-world action stealth game.
