Ghost Of Tsushima 2 teased, but there’s a catch

Jin Sakai will return, eventually

In February of 2023, PlayStation dropped a video that I have not stopped thinking about since.

I’m talking about the ‘Live From PS5’ trailer, created to celebrate titles exclusive to the PlayStation 5 from Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart to Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores and Returnal also featured. What do all of these games have in common? They’re new-gen exclusives as well as first-party exclusives.

It baffled us all then when the trailer showed a very brief glimpse of Jin Sakai. After all, Ghost of Tsushima released on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 prompting many to believe that this was quiet confirmation that a PS5-exclusive sequel was on the way.

It’s not the only tease we’ve had. Several job listings at Sucker Punch have also suggested that work is underway on the next instalment in Jin Sakai’s budding saga.

This is music to my ears given that I haven’t stopped raving about Ghost of Tsushima since I first played it.

What I can’t understand is why this small, unacknowledged teaser is all we’ve heard about the game.

After all, since the Live From PS5 campaign dropped, we’ve had both a PlayStation Showcase and several State of Play events.

Ghost of Tsushima is available via PlayStation Plus’ extra tier if you’re yet to dive in.

The ever reliable Jason Schreier may have the answer.

After rumours circulated over the weekend suggesting that Sucker Punch might also be working on a Sly Cooper reboot, Schreier tweeted, “No truth to this one, sorry to say. Sucker Punch is a one-project studio. “

“The reason Ghost of Tsushima 2 isn’t out yet is because AAA video games now take [five to seven] years to make. (Also, Sucker Punch is smaller than most other AAA game developers).”

Ghost of Tsushima launched in 2020 meaning that the earliest a sequel could feasibly launch is 2025, which isn’t all that far away.

To cut down on delays and crunch, many Sony studios now hold back game reveals until much closer to the respective project’s release window but even with that in mind, we could soon be approaching an appropriate time for a Ghost of Tsushima sequel reveal.

Summer Game Fest is on the horizon, as is the Xbox Games Showcase, a Nintendo Direct, and the annual Ubisoft Forward.

Sony is yet to announce a repeat of last year’s May PlayStation Showcase but many believe it to be coming.

Could this be when Sucker Punch’s next project is finally revealed? Only time will tell.
