When it comes to the video game world, there are plenty of great titles that come out each year–not just from first and third-party developers, but from indie creators as well. Only at certain points in time does a truly exceptional, genre-defining, or game-changing title come out, and it’s these games that showcase the true dedication some developers have to bring their vision to life. For many, Ghost of Tsushima embodied that in many ways, and a sequel has been asked for ever since its arrival on PS4. The good news is that a job listing seems to indicate that Ghost of Tsushima 2 is coming.
Keywords from the job listing indicate that Sucker Punch is looking for people to help out with an “open-world stealth game,” and given that the team is known for only two stealth titles–this franchise and Sly Cooper–that definitely narrows things down. Another part of the listing asked for help to “deliver interesting and varied encounters in an open-world game, with a particular focus on melee combat and stealth.”
So open-world, stealth, and melee combat? Yes, that could be Sly Cooper, but it feels more like they’re discussing Ghost of Tsushima 2.
The only bad thing that could be noted here is that some have interpreted these jobs listings as implying that the game in question is “very early in development.” Even if these job listings are filled quickly, the game itself won’t be coming out for a long time. This might not be a bad thing, as the original title was so beautifully crafted and detailed that a rushed sequel would not be wise.
Take this with a grain of salt, but on the other hand, keep your eyes open for a potential reveal soon enough.
