To celebrate nearly 25 years of Sucker Punch Productions, the studio has released a blog post offering an update on some of its most beloved series. However, Sly Cooper and Infamous fans be warned–this one does not end too happily for us.
According to the blog post, Sucker Punch has “no plans to revisit Infamous or Sly Cooper right now, and no other studio is currently working on projects related to those franchises either.” The team says this is because as its games “continue to grow in scale and complexity, they require the full attention” of the studio. Which, you know, is a great reason that makes complete sense, but is still a bit of a bummer.
“These characters are very special and near and dear to our hearts,” Super Punch added. “So while we’d never say never to re-opening those doors down the road, for now there are no Infamous or Sly Cooper games in development.”
