Sucker Punch hiring positions for inFAMOUS 2?

17 replies 20 views Edited Jul 18, 2009

http://playstationlifestyle.net/2009/07/17/sucker-punch-seeks-aaa-talent-for-next-game/ (here is the direct link)

 

Today, Sucker Punch (the creators of inFAMOUS) released a few job listings on their official website, indicating they are working on a new game. They are claiming it to be a AAA title (whatever that means) and one of the job listings is a "Network Programmer", which includes help making an online co-op/MP part of whatever game they are making.

 

Now, it never says this is inFAMOUS 2, but IMO, it sounds like it. So, until an official announcement, its "up to us" to help SP make their next game(that's what it said on the site).  

 

So, I guess we could keep this thread as a guessing game, of sorts, until they announce whatever game it is.

Hmm.. If it is online co op, it'll probably be some other super powered being..

A new character?

It would be a brilliant game without it but multiplayer would be a nice bonus. Just look at Uncharted 2, many people didn't want online in the game but most of them were entirely convinced after playing the beta. Just because a game has multiplayer, it doesn't mean the quality of the singleplayer will bbe affected

Why not?  If it doesn't affect the quality of singleplayer, then I am all for it.

#1 Sucker Punch is a small team, adding online would either shorten campaign quality or take longer to release.

 

#2 It would ruin the feel of the game, I dont want to lose that great old classic superhero game. There are so few singleplayer only games now.

Great, this turned into a Multiplayer-on-inFAMOUS-or-not type of thread. :smileyindifferent:

That is why they are hiring new employees, to make sure the singleplayer isn't affected. ND did the same with Uncharted 2.

If you don't want the multiplayer to ruin the classic superhero feel, then you don't have to play it

Interesting, thanks for bringing this to us.

 

For all we know it could be a sequel to inFamous, or it could be a new Sly Cooper. Both could be considered AAA titles, depending on how they're viewed. 

However, for some reason, I have a feeling it's leaning over to inFamous 2.
