After E3 No Show, Sony Confirms Infamous Dev's New Game Still Happening

"It is a game. They are not making movies."

68 Comments

Infamous developer Sucker Punch Productions is making a new game, but we still do not know much about it. The game was nowhere to be seen at Sony's E3 2017 briefing earlier this month, leading some to wonder what's the latest on the long-in-development and unannounced title.

PlayStation Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida said on the GameSpot stage at E3 that he has played the game many times. He continued, and it sounded like he was going to give away some details, but cut himself off, presumably to save the full reveal for later.

No Caption Provided

"I have played many, many more times of such game; and every time I play ... I shouldn't be talking any more,"he said. "It is a game. They are not making movies. It is now very narrow."

In December 2015, PlayStation's Scott Rohde said the Sucker Punch game was playable internally back then, saying he played an early version of the game with Yoshida at the time. He said the game was "fun" in the state he played it in, but mentioned that game development is a fluid process and things can change.

Sucker Punch, which is owned by Sony, released its latest game, Infamous: First Light, back in August 2014. Sony believes the Infamous series has a future, though comments from noted insider Shinobi earlier this year suggested Sucker Punch was making a brand-new IP.

Yoshida said earlier this month that Sony held back some game announcements from E3 for other events, possibly PlayStation Experience 2017.

Wouldn't mind seeing a few movies from Naughty Dog, actually. Bet they could do something far better than Sony's film studio.

As for Infamous...would love to see a remaster. Never got to play the first games. Became too busy to use my free trial of PS Now.

@Barighm: Sony Columbia has released some good movies like django unchained, magnificent seven, angry birds etc. However every movie studio releases stinkers or horrible movies these days. Please name a movie studio that hasn't released a bad movie? You can't. lol

@darthrevenx: Yeah they are making a slender man and emoji movie so.... but angry birds was a box office success so I'm guessing they hope to continue that?

Glad they are giving the infamous series a break. One thing I love about Sony is that will let a series take a break. MS just keep shoving it down your throat till you hate the series.

@sodapoppimpski: I swear someone has your same name on sherdog? Is that you or not? Anyways your right Sony pushed it with the Uncharted Franchise. The difference is they stopped after 3 and made a brand new IP in the last of us. They never did that with Gears of War. This has been an issue with MS they force these devs to keep pumping out the same game nonstop and the devs get tired of it. These guys are artist and they want to explore their creative ideas but MS restricts them from doing that. It's been a complaint from several devs when talking about MS.

On top of that Uncharted 1-4 stretched across two gens. Gears of had 4 games in one generation and this is coming from a huge fan of Gears. Gears and Mass Effect are the reason I got my 360 they were amazing games that I had to have. After Gears of War 3 though they should have stopped and waited until this gen to release a new one and had the company work on something new.

@method115: nope, not me. I'm on PSN and xbl with this name but not there. People like to steal my name as I see someone on this site uses something similar. I understand what you are saying and I agree. Sony has the benefit of this as they have more studios, something Microsoft I'd lacking, although I think Microsoft finally understood this and is making different, new ips as we speak

@sodapoppimpski: Yep I heard Phil's comments was also refreshing that he didn't want to talk about it so early. Seems they are learning from past mistakes. I hope MS does turn things around I love when them and Sony are both at the top of their game. Look at how much Sony was forced to refocus themselves after the disaster that was the PS3.

@electronic_eye: Yep I loved my 360 it was awesome. Gears of War was amazing, wasn't to much of a Halo fan after 1 but still it was a quality series. After #3 I was done with GOW though. They should have stopped taken a break and let the studio make something else. It was annoying to get the GOW prequel while Sony got like two new IP's. I was annoyed by MS's strategy. This year I went PS4 and I haven't regretted. Then Sony does all these remasters. If you were on 360 all last gen and moved to PS4 this gen you basically got the best possible outcome. You got lots of the PS4 games as remasters plus all the new stuff they have.

That's fine, we don't really need to hear about another game that isn't ready to be announced.

@baral-o: Heh. Funny. Was just reading comments in an Xbox article and they were going on about how much they hate singleplayer Japanese games and how multiplayer games have so much more replay value and all that. Just funny seeing how different the two fanbases are.

@Barighm: I have nothing against any console brand, I love third person games with good story and characters, espesially JRPGs, that's the sole reason I buy Playstation consoles and not Xbox to begin with, and also time and money doesn't allow for the luxury to have both and I already have a PS4 and a Vita (plus last gen systems)

Has it really been that long? I ordered a giant container of Chupa Chups from Amazon and got them the same day they sent my copy of Second Son. I still have some of those Chupa Chups. They're the icecream flavor, but they snuck some mango ones in and I hate mango.

@moonco: Lol I think this year will definitely be better than E3. We'll probably be seeing updates to many of the games that didn't make make it into the presentation, such as Media Molecule Dreams, Death Stranding, WiLD etc...

@LeonSK0006: Michel Ancel apparently is still working on it. He posted some screenshots on twitter back in January telling people the game is still in progress by his studio. He's probably working on it part time haha

Current sony environment allows for dev to take risk and be successful. Hope we get experiences like HZD or puppeteer.

@ThePlantain: i never finished Watch Dogs.....in fact it's one of the games I wish was over long long before it was.....and technically I only got like 10-15% into the story if that??? was not impressed and didn't bother with the sequel.....

even if I hadn't seen the E3 reveal of WD i'd still be disappointed cus the cars handled worse than GTA3 cars, the open world aspects were just boring, most of the game felt contrived, and many of the characters were meh, IDK I'd rather have played as the Lisbeth Salander rip off character.....

@darthrevenx:Pretty much sums up how I felt about it, I was tired of it very early on but ended up finishing it at some point. I hadn't seen the E3 reveal so when everyone was going on about "downgrade this and that" I didn't care. The visuals didn't bother me, but the characters, driving and story were horrible. The only sorta interesting character was the Asian dude, and that was because some of the stuff he did/said was funny. I didn't even bother giving the sequel any time, that's how bad of a taste the first one left.

I really hope for a new inFamous game, but something tells me it is either a new IP or a Sly Cooper, since we see a lot of PS originals are being revived/remade.
