Sucker Punch May Already Be Working On Ghost Of Tsushima 2

Thanks to the appearance of a new job listing vacancy at Sucker Punch Productions, it seems as though the development studio may already be working on Ghost of Tsushima 2.

The vacancy in question is in-house at the Sucker Punch HQ, located in Bellevue, Washington (as well as working remotely when needs be) and calls for a Narrative Writer to join their design team.

Other than Ghost of Tsushima, Sucker Punch Productions is also known for the Infamous series with the most recent main entry, Infamous: Second Son releasing on PS4 in 2014 (as well as the Sly Cooper series). 

According to the job listing, the Narrative Writer will: “join our writing team and help create engaging narrative content for our upcoming projects. Daily tasks will include writing dialogue and text, developing open-world stories, and crafting narrative content in collaboration with other designers.”

I know the quote taken above could be attached to most games nowadays, but the biggest giveaways that this vacancy is to work on Ghost of Tsushima 2 is that the new employee will help designers “to create open-world story content”, have an understanding of “current generation of open-world games”, and to have experience working on AAA games.

There’s also the need to have a “desire to write stories set in feudal Japan” (the actual setting of Ghost of Tsushima), with Sucker Punch strongly considering candidates who have “knowledge of feudal Japanese history.”

There are added details on the jobs listing page on the Sucker Punch Productions website, but when you take the highlights above into consideration alone, it seems to be quite clear that Sucker Punch could be developing Ghost of Tsushima 2 very soon, if production hasn’t already started.

Just recently, Sucker Punch Productions released Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, a free multiplayer expansion that is considered to be “Too Good to be Free”, you can read-up on all the details here.
