Sony registers Infamous 2 Web site

Publisher secures domain name for unannounced sequel to Sucker Punch's 2009 PS3-exclusive open-world action game.

Anyone who finished last year's PlayStation 3-exclusive Infamous knows that whether the main character was played as a noble hero or as a ruthless villain, the game's story pointed strongly to a sequel. Fans might not have to wait much longer for that sequel to become a reality, as Sony has started putting pieces together for an Infamous 2 marketing campaign.

With the world saved (or doomed), Cole can finally go back to delivering packages in Infamous 2.

As spotted by sleuthing blog superannuation, Sony Computer Entertainment America this week registered the Infamous2TheGame.com domain. Though there's no site at that URL currently, Sony has secured its claim to the domain through April of next year.

Even if the conclusion to Infamous didn't invite a sequel so clearly, a follow-up to the open-world action game would hardly be surprising. The game sold more than 1.2 million copies worldwide last year, and Sony Pictures was working on a feature-film adaptation within months of the title's debut.

Released last May to critical acclaim, the Sucker Punch-developed game tells the story of bike messenger Cole McGrath, who, after a massive explosion, wakes up with electricity-based superpowers. In the game, players make McGrath either a savior or a scourge as he attempts to break a government-imposed quarantine of his city.

Ehh, infamous legend, Just Cause 2 was better, but I wholeheartedly agree GTA4 was worse

whoever says that games like "just cause 2" and "gtaIV" are better is pretty messed up in the head

The first one I loved and I hope you have more open world actions and you finally can be like picked up by the military and you can go to the real world and fight real bad guys like terrorists.even though I the first one had it's own feel to it and it's still my favorite game it was just a thought.

Cole is one bad ass. Since the game will have you start picking a side to use they should have completly differrent stories still coming to the same ending. Like for evil Cole goes around killing people when the military shows up to take him down with water bombs or something.

Infamous was a great game. I really enjoyed playing it through as good and then evil. The great thing about it is that there are many ways it can develop and become even better. So hopefully a sequel should be fantastic.

@ 2w-sephiroth I think after u play the game more and finish it, u will get attached to Cole and maybe not mind him as much. I dont think thats a good idea yet because Coles story is still so wide open even after u beat the game, so id like to see where they go with it

2w-sephiroth

Dont flame me guys! I got the game but I havent finished it, but I think it would be good for a new hero to be introduced, a new city and a new story. Just like GTA does with their franchise you know what I mean? Maybe with the end of Infamous is made with the intencion of making a conected seccuel... so I dont know that yet!

i loved the first but the only thing that bothered me was the graphics and physics. it would be awesome if they have an import where you have the saved date from the original and import it to the second like mass effect.

inFamous 1 was one of my favorite PS3 exclusives last year. Hopefully inFamous 2 can score a 9.5 or higher here. :)

I Loved Infamous and beat it, I'm just shocked there r a lot of stupid people here saying the graphics was bad!!! of course u didn't play it otherwise u won't say that cos the graphic was perfect for an open world game and the game's score was 9.0 on Gamspot so please if u didn't play the game shut the Fu@#$ up

@ Gamer_4_Fun Dude what u said should be a description for how Protohype looked.. that game was below par overall.. Infamous looks really good.. even now. for an open world game.. the world is finely detailed and alive and the effects are dope.. also the comic book art style of the game is awesome too.. its a more dark .. more cool.. more modern fable for ps3 for me.. only gripe i have against it is the pop in issues.. sometimes even if u werent lookin for it the pop in strikes u.. otherwise its a good lookin game but you're rite.. its not sony lvl.. they can do much better and hopefully the sequel will solve the 1st ones problems. :D

I hope that the next game lets you have more choice as far a powers and combining which ones you want to get and use. I liked the powers you got when you completed the Evil missions more than when you chose to be good. You just felt more powerful!!! I played the game three times to find out how much I could affect the story, it was awesome.
