Ghost of Tsushima was an unforgettable success which came and shook the genre. The game is immersive and is set in Feudal Japan where we follow the journey of the game’s protagonist Jin Sakai. The game had very satisfying combat mechanics with the masterful use of audio-visual elements to enhance the historical and emotional context of the game.

Ghost of Tsushima, having sold over 9 million units, is considered by fans as one of the finest open-world action-adventure games. The game captivates players with its rich content and diverse gameplay, ensuring a deeply immersive experience.

Recently, the gaming community has been full of speculation about the sequel to Ghost of Tsushima. But reports surfaced online that it has taken a backseat because of a rumored new Sly Cooper game. However, Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier has put an end to those rumors and added fuel to the fire that is Ghost of Tsushima 2.

Jason Schreier explained that while Sucker Punch is a commendable studio, it isn’t large enough to handle multiple game productions simultaneously. The studio’s focus is on one game at a time, which could explain the lack of announcements regarding Ghost of Tsushima 2. The development of AAA titles now takes longer, adding to the delay.

Sly Cooper is a franchise that has been etched in the minds of fans for years. The last game, Sly Cooper: Thieves of Time, was released in 2013. The absence of any updates or announcements for over a decade has left fans feeling restless.

Industry Insider’s Update is Good News for Sony and a Lesson for Xbox

The insider confirms one thing about Sucker Punch. The studio is taking its time to use its limited resources to better cultivate a sequel to one of the greatest PlayStation exclusives of all time. Unlike Microsoft’s rushed Xbox Exclusives like Redfall, Sony affiliated studios are playing to their strengths.

The quality of games matters because Sony no longer has the bandwidth to compete with Microsoft on sheer quantity. While they have their Game Pass, Sony has Studios with better vision. Each gaming giant is doing what they do best.

And clearly right now, Sony has taken the lead despite falling behind when it comes to their game library size. Should Microsoft learn from Sucker Punch and not push studios into taking hasty decisions? Only time will tell if the answer to that question is no. Moreover with Microsoft’s shopping spree, Xbox Game Pass could now focus on quality just like Sucker Punch did, according to the report. If they will do it – that’s a story for another day.

Adding to the intrigue, the recent controversy surrounding the PC launch of Ghost of Tsushima has brought the game back into the spotlight. The controversy stemmed from Sony’s decision to restrict game releases in countries where PSN accounts are not permitted. Steam has already started refunding the players whose countries do not allow PSN accounts to be made. This decision has reminded players about the game and fueled further speculation about its sequel.

Looks like the wait for the sequel continues but the recent updates have provided a glimmer of hope for fans. As we wait for further updates, one thing is certain – the world of Ghost of Tsushima continues to captivate and intrigue its fans.
