Sorry, There’s Probably No New Sly Cooper Game Coming Soon


Sucker Punch Productions’ iconic platforming franchise, Sly Cooper, probably isn’t getting a brand-new game any time soon.

Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier responded to a rumor going around that the reason why an unannounced Ghost of Tsushima sequel has yet to be revealed was because the studio was working on a new Sly Cooper again. He said that there was no basis to the rumor, and that Sucker Punch was a “one project studio,” meaning that they reportedly don’t work on multiple games at once. Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb also said that the rumor was only speculation and nothing had been confirmed.

Furthermore, video games take much longer to development now, so it’s not a surprise when a game that a big AAA hasn’t been publicly revealed just yet. Schreier also noted that Sucker Punch is a smaller developer compared to your average AAA studio, such as Ubisoft or Activision.

Back in 2022, Sucker Punch celebrated Sly Cooper’s 20th anniversary by creating merchandise for fans to purchase. The studio also confirmed that there were no plans to revisit the Sly Cooper series at the moment, and that no other studios were currently working on it either. The last proper entry in the series was 2013’s Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.
