Infamous is such a cool IP and I would hate to see Sony leave it dormant for a decade

On the subject of SP, am I the only one who'd love a new Sly Cooper or at least a remake trilogy?

Sly Cooper shall rise again, sooner or later (hopefully)

WKC was some great fun, I had a lot of fun with the MMO-lite MP

It's a 64 Metacritic game that didn't sell. I'm actually shocked it even got a sequel on PS3 (which apparently was even worse).

The franchise is dead and should stay that way.

It felt like they never really grasped its potential. It was a super hero franchise without typical super heroes and if you are going for that angle you need to subvert in interesting ways (eg the Boys)

Infamous never kept me hooked although I did give the 2 games and expansion a fair shot

ghost of Tsushima is amazing and really want to see this story continue for now. I am hooked on it in a way infamous just never quite did

I only enjoyed Second Son, and for a super hero kind game, thers better ones out there like Batman or Spider-man. Im actually glad to see Sucker Punch moved away from the Infamous IP to try something new, and they nailed it with the amazing Ghost of Tsushima that is by far my favorite game they made.

Second Son gets repetitive with the same side quests over and over but the main story is good and I believe there's more they can get out of the franchise. They need to revamp the silly karma system and not make the good/bad decisions so obvious.

Almost assuredly dead, with Spidy filling that superhero open world slot and GoT being a smashing success.

Must we constantly have sequels? Do we really need a Ghost of Tsushima 2? Infamous 4?

New games please. Creative new projects are the best.

I was not able to get through Second Son. just got boring. I was late to the party as well so shortly after PS4's launch I'm sure this was a real treat. To be fair, on PS3 by the end of the original Infamous I was already not feeling the game anymore. I'm not sure why. If they did a new Infamous I would hope for a better story and a darker theme, maybe not so much open world nonsense. I think Infamous would benefit from being a more linear game, but maybe with new tech that's in the PS5 they can pull off a better open world.

Well all of Sony's latest first party games are sequels

Demon Soul (remake)
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart (Sequel)
Spider-Man: Mile Morales (Sequel)
God of War 2 (Sequel)
Horizon: Forbidden West (Sequel)

Might as well have a sequel to a dormant series

I really wanted a sequel to Second Son. I never did play the original infamous games so a remake of those games would work for me as well.

Second Son was real good for what it was, but I wish it got a sequel. It was just a bit short and thin compared to games late in the gen. But the traversal, the feel of that game was incredible and it was one of the first games that really pushed the graphical capabilities of the PS4.

I liked the PS3 ones too but I liked Second Son more.

For those of you unaware, the two InFamous games on PS4 run at a full-fat 60 fps on PS5. They also received pro patches so they run at a higher res with additional graphical effects.
