Infamous dev working on new PS3 title

Following the release of Infamous 2, Sucker Punch is looking for a senior producer to work on a new project for Sony's console.

Smack-dab in the middle of the 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo two weeks ago, Sony shipped Infamous 2. The PlayStation 3 exclusive debuted to decent reviews, although it's still too early to gauge its popular reception.

Could Infamous 3 already be in the works?

However Infamous 2 does at retail, its developer isn't missing a beat. Suburban Seattle-based Sucker Punch has already posted a job listing on Gamasutra seeking a senior producer for its next project, which will also be on the PS3.

Specifically, candidates must have five-plus years of experience in the game industry, have been a producer on at least one AAA game, and have a "passion for console games."

As of press time, Sony Computer Entertainment America representatives had not commented on what Sucker Punch's new project might be--including the possibility it is Infamous 3.

Infamous 2 sees series hero/antihero Cole McGrath leave the metropolis of Empire City and travel to New Marais, a city based on New Orleans. Along the way, he faces a similar narrative duality as in the first game, choosing to either help or hinder humankind. Once he arrives at his destination, he must confront a menacing entity simply called "the Beast."

@annoyingdevil It's not being developed by Sucker Punch cause they said that they don't have the time to make a new Sly Cooper game. Which just ruined it for me that SP is not making the new Sly Cooper. It's from the same people that brought the HD Sly Collection out.

Infamous 3 would just screw the entire series. I'm sorry but the end of Infamous 2 was enough for me. I love the game and I don't want to see it get screwed up just because sucker punch gets as greedy as activision. They already have something to perfect, SLY 4.

Infamous 3 wouldnt make sense, It has to be a new IP.... or maybe another Sly. I know Sanzaru is doing Sly 4, but even Sucker Punch said that they would return to the franchise.

Seeing as I have yet to pick up inFamous 2, I hope this new project is something fresh. That way I can take my time and don't need to rush through the second game.

Hopefully they won't be working on an iF3... ever. With how overrated the first game was leading into a sequel that was just about the same, who knows how the third would wind up, especially given the two different endings.

@malatato Uhh.... you do realize not everyone here has played the 2nd game right?? So you just let everyone know a little something about the ending of 2.

I can't believe Infamous 2 was 1 point lower then I rated my experience playing the game. I mean how am I supposed to enjoy the game when a person out there thinks its score should be a point or two lower then I do?

im kinda dissapointed they arent making sly 4 but as long as Sanzaru can make it completely awesome, im fine with it because now Sucker Punch can work on infamous 3 or a new awesome game.

Sucker Punch is not making Sly 4 for the users saying its Sly 4...

NSA should be the baddies in the 3rd game.it makes sense if you listen to the dead drops and that it should lead to the 1st game like time travel

I think if they do make a third installment, it should end with it looping back to the beginning of 1 with the bomb going off in Empire City. Your time loop paradox would then be complete. :)

My Theory about Infamous 3 plot my theory willl be that cole is not dead instead he is in coma(The spark of lightning in the ending made me think this). The power of the blast cores he absorbed made him withstand the RFI genocide effects. As for the antagonist, the nearest I can think of is Moya and her government lackeys , it is stated in the comics that alden and sasha is in moya's hand she might use them(their corpse) to create a bunch of forced conduits to kill cole.

Infamous 2 looks rather good, apart from the different voice actor and look for Cole. He looks and sounds like he's going through reverse puberty. Other than that, good first impressions.

So far Infamous 2 is the best game of 2011, yes even way better than Portal 2 and I love Portal 2. Next time leave the reviews to Kevin. Gamespot should have redone the review. We all know Infamous 2 is not a 7.5 game.

@Gelugon_baat Maybe you should just try ignoring people that state comments which they believe to be fact. Otherwise you're going to be highly busy on this website :P Just a thought..

i thought the ending for inFamous 2 was very powerful (ive only finished it on good) and i think theyd ruin that if they tried to continue cole's storyline. a prequel however, maybe focusing on a new protagonist, well...

Hahaha. The first line made me laugh.. "The PlayStation 3 exclusive debuted to decent reviews..." Correct Gamespot it did.. just not on your website :P I look forward to see what's coming next. I still need to pick up Infamous2 as well. Payday next wednesday! Woo!

There is nothing like a PS3 fan scorned. By golly, he disagreed with a majority and he gets called wrong for it. No wonder people think gaming is childish if this is the outwards impression one gets.

inFamous 2 is the best 2011 game after Portal 2 . I'm having a blast with it . Hope it's infamous 3 , but Sly 4 is also a great thing . ;)

@Gelugon_baat Really don't argue it with me...Cause he fully admitted it he never finished the game...I wish I could the find thread that it was post on...How many reviews do see with that almost same line...If your looking to fight with we on it look for thread I still wanna know what a PC gamer input has to do with game being made for PS3!...
