Let’s hope that Ghost of Tsushima players don’t discover any new game-breaking bugs or glitches while running around Tsushima island in their attempt to fend off the Mongol invasion as protagonist Jin Sakai. Developer Sucker Punch has confirmed via the patch notes for its latest update (2.18) for Ghost of Tsushima that it is no longer actively working on further fixes for the critically acclaimed samurai adventure. That said, the studio is still monitoring its social media accounts for any “high priority” issues that might be left in the game. Sucker Punch has already provided nearly two years of support for Ghost of Tsushima, which originally released in July 2020 for the PS4. The game arrived on PS5 around a year later with improved loading times, full Japanese lip sync, and other benefits.

“While we aren’t actively working on any additional patches at the moment, we will continue to monitor feedback on the community-run Gotlegends subreddit and messages sent to @SuckerPunchProd on Twitter for any high priority bugs or issues that emerge,” Sucker Punch wrote at the end of the patch notes.

“We want to say a huge THANK YOU to the entire community for the incredible amount of support and feedback we’ve gotten since launch. When Legends launched in October 2020, we never expected to have such an active community more than a year and a half later, and we could not be more thankful to everyone who has been with us on this journey!”

Ghost of Tsushima Dev Is Moving on After Two Years of Updates (Push Square)

Ghost of Tsushima developer Sucker Punch seems to be moving on from its open world epic following close to two years of post-launch support. The game’s latest update, patch 2.18, released early this week, adjusting various aspects of the title’s dedicated co-op multiplayer mode, Legends. It also included a couple of minor tweaks to the game’s single player campaign.

[…] it looks like this is the end of the line for Ghost of Tsushima — and that comes as no real surprise. It’s been heavily suggested that the bulk of Sucker Punch moved onto the studio’s next project a long time ago — that project supposedly being a sequel to Ghost of Tsushima. Surely an easy game for Sony to greenlight, seeing as Jin’s initial adventure has sold extremely well since its original PlayStation 4 release in 2020.
