Don’t expect a new Sly Cooper or Infamous game anytime soon, says Sucker Punch

The studio behind Ghost of Tsushima, Sucker Punch Productions, is celebrating its 25th anniversary and says that it doesn’t have any plans to revisit any of its beloved legacy franchises like InFamous and Sly Cooper.

“As our games continue to grow in scale and complexity, they require the full attention of our studio. With our focus on our current project, we have no plans to revisit InFamous or Sly Cooper right now, and no other studio is currently working on projects related to those franchises either,” says Sucker Punch in a blog post.

“These characters are very special and near and dear to our hearts, so while we’d never say never to re-opening those doors down the road, for now, there are no InFamous or Sly Cooper games in development.”

Sucker Punch mentioned that it will be conducting maintenance on InFamous 2‘s UGC servers. They are part of the game’s multiplayer user-generated content where players can create and share missions with the community. However, the studio also did note that they will eventually need to sunset the servers but will keep them online for a little longer for fans to play.

Furthermore, Sucker Punch is currently working on adding the Cole’s Legacy DLC from InFamous Second Son to the PlayStation Store for everyone to experience, as it was previously only available for those who purchased the game’s Collector’s Edition.

Job listings for Sucker Punch’s new project appeared last month and they hinted at it focusing on both action and stealth mechanics. While Sucker Punch has now confirmed that neither an InFamous nor Sly Cooper game is in development, its next game could be a sequel to Ghost of Tsushima.

Is XDefiant cross-platform?
XDefiant

Ubisoft's latest shooter is looking to break into the very competitive free-to-play market with XDefiant. This is a third-party studio that very rarely releases any of its games on a single platform, and a multiplayer shooter like this needs to be available in as many places as possible to succeed. However, if it doesn't have cross-platform support, then it might as well be exclusive since the player base will be split regardless.

Has XDefiant made the critical error of not having any cross-platform support, or can you pick up this game knowing you will be able to find a match easily? Let's find out.
Is XDefiant cross-platform?
Yes, XDefiant is thankfully fully cross-platform between PC, Xbox Series X, and PlayStation 5. That makes it all the easier to convince a friend to give it a try since it costs nothing and you can all play together even if you don't have the same console. You also have the option to turn off cross-play if you prefer to stick to only matching up against others on your system. A future update is also planned to allow console players to exclude PC players from cross-play to remove any advantages they may have using keyboard and mouse over controllers.

The Witcher 3 REDkit is out and it makes modding easier than ever
Geralt from The Witcher 3 and his horse Roach.

Modders got some good news on Tuesday with the release of The Witcher 3 REDkit, a free tool that Witcher developer CD Projekt Red says will allow people to edit "almost everything within the game."

REDkit was developed mainly by Yigsoft, a developer that's worked alongside CD Projekt Red on The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077. According to a blog post, the tool is similar to ones used to create The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (although REDkit's store page notes that "achieving the full scope of development akin to the original creators may require access to external tools"). The post also says that more tutorials and documentation will be unveiled soon, but people who want to hop in immediately can do so. The REDkit is now free to download on Steam, GOG.com, and the Epic Games Store.
