Has Development On inFamous 2 Already Started?
Just a few days ago, we heard about the rumor that Prototype 2 might be in development and now, as if in cue, we start to wonder if Sucker Punch is already hard at work on a sequel to inFamous.
It's a little ironic because there was much debate concerning these two titles; i.e., which was better. We still maintain that it's a no-brainer (inFamous is a legitimate Game of the Year contender while Prototype most certainly is not), but we wouldn't mind in the least if Radical made a sequel to their game. It'd be even more ironic if inFamous 2 launched alongside that sequel for another go-'round: according to a new job listing, Sucker Punch is looking for a Lead Character Artist for their new project. The start date is "Immediately," they're looking for someone to produce character design for their "forthcoming AAA title," and this person "should be aware of current urban style and street fashion." That last bit throws us a little, as it could mean just about anything, but it still fits the inFamous atmosphere. There was some talk about Sly Cooper 4 - we caught a hint of this in inFamous - but the developers just said that was a joke, and they didn't have any plans to make another Sly. No, this sounds more like a sequel to one of this year's most accomplished and entertaining titles.
Really, if it does turn out to be inFamous 2, we're gonna be all over that one. It could be a new exclusive PS3 franchise that is absolutely stellar...as if the PS3 needs more stellar exclusives at this point. ;)
