It appears that Sly Cooper and inFAMOUS studio Sucker Punch is working on a sequel to its brilliant 2020 action-adventure samurai game, Ghost of Tsushima. The possibility stems from video/cinematic creative director Dave Molloy, who noted on his LinkedIn page that he was currently working on a Ghost of Tsushima game for Sony’s next-gen console, the PlayStation 5.

“Dave has a passion and super strength in artistic visual storytelling, editorial, and cinematography,” Molloy’s LinkedIn profile reads. “Also excels in art experimentation, creative thinking and team collaboration. Presently working on the Ghost of Tsushima game for Sony PS5. And sometimes takes commercial freelance work on the side. Check his Vimeo portfolio for work updates.”

This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen signs of a Ghosts of Tsushima sequel being brewed by Sucker Punch. The developer has posted at least two job listings thus far that lead credence to a follow-up, such as an opening for a new combat designer that “must have played Ghost of Tsushima and understand its core combat systems.”

“Last year in October, a job listing called for a writer who has a ‘desire to write stories set in feudal Japan,’ a pretty strong indication that Sucker Punch was looking to build on the world established in Ghost of Tsushima,” GamesRadar+ added in its coverage. “The possibility of a Ghost of Tsushima sequel shouldn’t be a massive surprise, given the game’s huge success on PS4 last year.”
