Well, this some painful news. Sucker Punch has no plans to go back to two of their beloved franchises, Sly Cooper and InFamous, anytime soon (probably never).

From their official site, here’s what the company had to say:

As we approach 25 years since Sucker Punch first opened, we’re proud to look back on the legacy of characters and stories we’ve created, from Rocket: Robot on Wheels to Sly Cooper and inFAMOUS, and most recently Ghost of Tsushima.

As our games continue to grow in scale and complexity, they require the full attention of our studio. With our focus on our current project, we have no plans to revisit inFAMOUS or Sly Cooper right now, and no other studio is currently working on projects related to those franchises either. These characters are very special and near and dear to our hearts, 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.

Thank you to everyone for an incredible 24+ years of support. 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.

I knew something like this would happen. After the success of  Ghost of Tsushima, I knew the company would go the Naughty Dog route and probably focus more realistic/grounded games going forward. I’m excited to see what Sucker Punch will do in the future, but I hope they don’t give up on franchises that made fans love them (looking at you too Naughty Dog).
