The almost universally positive response to Sucker Punch Production's first recent non-Sly Cooper game, the anti-hero open-world adventure inFamous, would suggest that a sequel is pretty much a given. But could inFamous 2 already be in development? There's a small hint, filed away in a new Sucker Punch job listing that could suggest that's actually true.
Sucker Punch added three new job descriptions to their web site yesterday -- art director, lead animator, lead character artist -- that were all for the studio's "forthcoming AAA title," which is so far unannounced. The rumor's been that Sucker Punch would return to Sly Cooper before inFamous 2, but maybe the company's actually working on both.
A bullet point in the description for lead character artist is what tipped me off, as one of the requirements is being "aware of current urban style and street fashion." That jives with the look of Cole and other characters. Unless the next Sly Cooper is aiming for realism, I'm guessing this is for the inFamous team.
Of course, this is almost the definition of a non-story. inFamous 2? Duh. It's just a matter of Sucker Punch getting far enough into development to finally talk about it, which isn't going to be for some time. Any suggestions for the team?
