|inFAMOUS 2 to feature online play?|
Posted by Nick on November 16, 2009
Sucker Punch is working on a new game, that much we can confirm. All signs point toward a follow up to there electrifying super hero title, InFAMOUS. First, Sucker Punch was looking to hire an artist well versed in urban street fashion, something our buddy Sly was never into. Then, we also had voice actors talking about auditions for the game.
So assuming all that is correct, we now know another aspect of InFAMOUS 2 - it will be including some sort of online mode. According to a new job posted on GamaSutra's job boards, Sucker Punch is looking for a candidate to" implement the on-line component for our forthcoming AAA title".
How Sucker Punch will implement online is an entirely seperate matter. Sandbox games haven't really done multiplayer well in the past. Online modes in Grand Theft Auto, Godfather II, and other titles have not amounted to much more than a pointless tack on to add another bullet point feature to the back of the box. Still, Sucker Punch has proved to be an extremely crafty dev, so we have faith in whatever they're doing.
