Video game companies are notoriously reticent to share their plans. In a market saturated with sequels and spin-offs, developers nevertheless treat each new project with extreme secrecy. They will rarely even be upfront about what they are doing they are not works, but today PlayStation studio behind Ghost of Tsushima did just that.

As its 25th anniversary approaches, Sucker Punch has taken the unusual step of letting fans know what not to expect from its next game, killing rumors of a potential sequel to the superhero sandbox series. Disgracefulor stealth platforming Sly Cooperwhich will happen soon.

Sucker Punch wrote:

As our games continue to grow in scale and complexity, they require our studio’s full attention. As we are focusing on our current project, we have no plans to revisit it inFAMOUS or Sly Cooper currently, and no other studio is currently working on projects related to these franchises. These characters are very special and near and dear to our hearts, so while we’d never say never to open those doors again down the road, for now we won’t inFAMOUS or Sly Cooper games in development.
