OPM Rumor: inFamous 2 Lands In 2010

First, we hear that Atlus may give role-playing fans Demon's Souls 2 before the year is out and now, we see a rumor for yet another highly anticipated sequel.

And again, this one should also arrive in 2010: it's inFamous 2, which is something we know Sucker Punch has been working on ever since the original wowed us last year. The source is the newest issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine; it was mentioned in their "Second to None" section and although the sequel is technically "unannounced" at this time, we'll still see the next Cole adventure before the year is out. The article says it will indeed be a direct sequel, but it'll start "a significant time after the first game," which means we'll be treated to a "reshaped metropolis." We're not going to bother asking Sony about this because we've seen their standard reply to rumors all too many times ("we don't comment on rumor or speculation"), so it's a matter of waiting for actual news at this point. Personally, inFamous was one of my favorite titles of 2009 and I can't wait to learn more about the sequel, although I should probably add that I'd be perfectly happy with little more than that "reshaped" city and a few new powers. The first one was so engaging and addictive; I really don't want them to change the gameplay at all.

We'll see when Sucker Punch or Sony plans to give us some official information and in the meantime, what would you like to see in the sequel? Let us know all about your hopes and dreams for inFamous 2...

I say they keep the gameplay the same, give us uncharted like graphics and maybe add in some type of online component to please people that can't live w/o their online.

Hard to believe they could even achieve Uncharted graphics with a game as large as this.

Online would be awesome for inFamous. With BD the sp won't be gimped and the people with friends will get to play a great game together.

Just beat inFamous last night...For the 4th time. Awesome game. And very moody and emotional game, too. I forgot to mention it in my list of memorably moving games.

Based on fun factor, and replayability, it reigned supreme for me over the other great sp adventures of the year, like AC2, and Batman. And despite what some say, the graphics are really awesome to me, with awesome textures for an open world game, beautiful lighting, and vertigo inducing verticality and scale.

From what i heard it will have online (not that it would need it). I guess there's been a lot of comparisons to it and Crackdown 2 (also coming out sometime this year). But, I hope Sucker Punch takes their sweet time with it. So, I can wait until next year.

They HAVE TO keep the story elements... that was what made InFamous the awesome piece of work it is. Besides that, they should completely RE-WORK the side quests... because 80% of them sucked.

Add some Batman: AA kind of maps to help you find the MASSIVE amount of shards and collectibles they hid in that massive city too, please... work on the graphics a bit... adding more story content won't be bad either...

They should hire me in Sucker Punch :D

Hell yes if this is true! And note to Sucker Punch: NO ONLINE MODE!!!
Keep this the solid, single-player OFFLINE game I loved. This was tied with AC2 for my #2 game last year. Again: focus on SP, there is no need for an onlin mode. I hope you can take your save data from the last game and keep some if not all your powers. That would be a bonus for those who played and beat the first one.

@InBlackestNight

I totally agree with you! Keep it OFFLINE and keep it SIMPLE! I'm not even sure how it would work for online... But DC wouldn't be bad, I guess. Although, I'm not much into DC. But, if it has to be something online, at least DC. Multiplayer just sounds too much...

ha this is going to be another killer year for PS3, badass games and wait uh more badass games... anyways like you said keep the whole gameplay the same, more stunts and powers with a huge map and even the power to turn into electricity itself and be able to go 'literately' into a power-line and blast your way to where ever it is you need to go! and more Boss battles-

it would huh!?! when i was playing infamous and I had to travel across the map to get somewhere ( for the 30th time lol) "while sliding on the lines was somewhat effective" I said to myself "why cant I just blast into this power-line and get to where I need to go right now!" I think it would be a perfect addition to the ways you can travel in Infamous besides just kind of floating/grind the power lines, or running...

@stroh007

I can see where you're coming from and how awesome that would be, but somehow it just doesn't... Feel like inFamous... Do you know what I mean?
I thought the traveling around from place to place was kind of fun in a way because you got to get more of a feel of being a human with a bit of spark. I'm sorry this kind of sounds retarded xD But, anyway, that would be cool, but I don't know if it'd be in my taste.

I would love the idea of a diffrent city feel to the game. The last game dealt with a disaster. While this game could deal with time after the city has been done rebuilding.

inFamous was my very first PS3 game and it doesn't beat UC2, but it comes extremely close! inFamous is addicting, fun, modern, and, more or less, really original. Sucker Punch would be wise to release a second installment and I know it will be better than its previous installment.
I'm expecting Zeke to be maybe you main enemy and possibly Maya in the mix there somehow. Maybe Zeke found the remains of the Ray Sphere and gave himself powers? Who knows?
Also, for the gameplay and graphics? Just keep them the same! The graphics were actually quite beautiful and the gameplay is just perfect. I'd like to see alot of the same powers come back and maybe a few new ones. Another thing, please don't change voiceovers! The voiceovers weren't all that bad and I'd love to see them come back.
Come on Sucker Punch! Second verse, same as the first!

Got the first one shortly after getting Assassin's Creed II. Some kind of great sale or something... haven't got around to playing it yet, but once AC2 is done it'll be the next one in.

I don't get why so many people are so adamant about anti-online gaming. I mean sure the SP is always the most important, but online is always fun to play around with with friends and such too. I mean look at Uncharted 2, it had online and an amazing SP. I mean Infamous online could just be co-op that could be a separate experience like R2's co-op or it could just be SP with another person. And any type of other multiplayer games could be the mutant gangs or w/e fighting each other, kind of like how BioShock 2's multiplayer is the random people in the world fighting. I mean come on, just because it'll have MP doesn't mean the SP is going to suck because of it guys =P

I hope this is true, I know I'm late to the party with this game but I'm glad I made it.

I finished this game on hero a few days ago and now going back to play with the evil side of the campaign. Although I really loved the game, I don't really see it needing online.

this is the second most addictive game of 2009 after Demon's Souls, actually for the entire 2009, only three games really mattered to me on PS3: Demon's Souls, inFamous and BlazBlue ==3 most unique and original games.

I get PTOM and they were the same people that wrongly published that GT5 would have Indy Cars so I'm not believing this for a second. I thought inFamous had a great storyline, I'm hoping bugs/glitches aren't as prevalent in the sequel.

Bought it secondhand last year because of good reviews. Second game will be day one purchase! Brilliant game (except now for still missing 2 shards for platinum, not to be seen on the map).

Any news on Sly Cooper ?

at this moment i think infamous was one of the best games ever found for the ps3
the game play is very interesting it can take up to 20 hours to finish the game twice on both ways of good and evil
with a little bit of more polishing for the next release of the game a it will turn into a much better game even
for this game being released in the end of this year will be a good time for next Christmas has a good chance to let the ps3 gain another good holiday season
by the way this is my first ever comment over here

Agree with LegendaryWolfeh yet again. I think multiplayer for this game would be great, if it was GTA-based. Picture lots of Pikachu's running around, attacking each other with an even wider array of electric attacks. Idk about you guys, but that sounds like fun to me.

to add on to my last comment, or picture like a 5 VS. 5, where the team that steals the most charge from light poles & cars wins, while fending off opponents. Another idea that'll make me extremely happy.

I thought #1 was a really great game, with a really unsuspected plot twist at the end.
Infamous is one of my few platinum trophy games(together with UC1&2 and R&C:ACIT), it was a real pain getting those stunts and lightning shards though, had to start my third playthrough for that, still worth it.
Here's for Infamous 2 being even better than the first!

yea it took me three play throughs to get them shards... I had one left and could not find it forever because it was almost the exact same shade of blue on the map as the water is so I missed it all the time untill I finally barely saw it... lol then i went platinum.
