Ghost of Tsushima developer Sucker Punch hasn’t yet announced what it is working on next, but a new job listing suggests that the studio might stick with its new IP for the foreseeable future.
The job listing for a narrative writer makes two mentions of Feudal Japan, requesting that applicants have an interest in the history of the era and have a desire to write stories for it. This suggests that Sucker Punch is either working on additional content for its PlayStation exclusive, or are preparing to start work on a sequel.
A sequel to Ghost of Tsushima would hardly be surprising, especially given the track record of recent Sony exclusives. Sony Santa Monica has already revealed a sequel to 2018’s God of War, while Insomniac is launching Spider-Man: Miles Morales with the PlayStation 5, continuing the story of the first title.
Additional content is not out of the question, however, especially on the heels of a big content update that recently launched for Ghost of Tsushima. Legends adds co-op multiplayer to the open-world adventure and is free for all players through an update. Sucker Punch will also be supporting the game after the PlayStation 5 launches, with the studio already confirming that it will run at up to 60 FPS on the more powerful hardware.
Ghost of Tsushima is another strong Sony first-party exclusive, even if it has some rough edges to it. In our Ghost of Tsushima review, critic Edmond Tran wrote, “Ghost of Tsushima is at its best when you’re riding your horse and taking in the beautiful world on your own terms, armed with a sword and a screenshot button, allowing the environmental cues and your own curiosity to guide you. It’s not quite a Criterion classic, but a lot of the time it sure looks like one.”
