Ghost of Tsushima developer Sucker Punch is hiring staff, so much so that fans suspect it may be for the start of the sequel to the samurai-themed action game released on PS4. Check out all the details about the Ghost of Tsushima 2 in the article below.
Sucker Punch Hiring for Ghost of Tsushima 2?
The first chapter of Ghost of Tsushima has in fact achieved excellent success from critics and audiences, partly unexpected. After all, the game managed to total over 8 million copies sold, demonstrating how Jin Sakai’s adventure proved to be a winner.
If the first rumors about a possible Ghost of Tsushima 2 began to circulate already in March of this year, now the clues are increasing even more.
According to a ResetEra thread, Sucker Punch is currently looking for a Technical Combat Designer and Senior Combat Designer at its Washington studio. Both roles require candidates to have played previously released Sucker Punch titles, namely games such as Ghost of Tsushima, in addition to the Infamous and Sly Cooper series.
Both Sly Cooper and Infamous have been the subject of comeback rumors for years, though nothing has been confirmed to date till now.
Most likely, however, it is possible that the job posting is related to Ghost of Tsushima 2, not only because it is arguably one of the most important Sucker Punch games, but also because of the job posting descriptions (since of combat and open-world).
However, at the moment there is no guarantee that this will be the case. The studio could very well be working on another game. At the end of the day, talking about an open-world AAA with close combat is a pretty big concept.
Sucker Punch first released Ghost of Tsushima for PS4 in 2020, followed by an expansion and PS5 version in 2021. Rumors claim the game will eventually come to PC in a similar fashion to God of War, Uncharted, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Spider-Man Remastered, but there have been no official announcements yet.
