Sucker Punch Production’s inFAMOUS: Second Son was released a week or so ago with very positive reviews, making many a PlayStation 4 owner happy with a new first party exclusive. In an interview, Sucker Punch’s Nate Fox talked about the future of the series where the games can take place in different locations around the world along many different timelines. Basically, he said that they will probably take the route of Assassin’s Creed and have our super powered protagonist use his powers anywhere, anytime. Fox also said that he would be fine with Sucker Punch only making inFAMOUS games.

“That’s a good curse to be saddled with. inFamous is a really broad concept – an everyday person gets powers and decides if they want to use them for good or evil. That could be anybody of any age, any gender, any time, any country. It’s as wide open as superhero fiction.” —

If you ask me, I like the idea of the franchise taking place during different eras and locations. It would bring new life and ideas into future sequels of the franchise. However, I do think they need to make new IPs. I mean, this is Sucker Punch, the original creator of both the Sly Cooper franchise and the inFAMOUS franchise. I think Sony will give them some money and time to work on a brand new franchise. Personally, I would be very tired of working on one IP for many years. More well known developers should be able to be creative and take some risks with new ideas, as people can get tired of the same game. But really, as long as they don’t do a yearly release, I am fine with sequels.
