Ghost of Tsushima: Sucker Punch at work on spectacular multiplayer game

Ghost of Tsushima

Sucker Punch - a well-known Sony developer who gave birth to series such as Sly Cooper, inFamous and, more recently, Ghost of Tsushima - is working on a new project, described as "a spectacular multiplayer game". The information comes from a job posting on the official Sucker Punch website.

Specifically, the Ghost of Tsushima development team is looking for a new mutiplayer / network programmer who is willing to join the team. Bellevue, Washington. "Our talented multiplayer designers bring incredible experiences to life and you will be instrumental in bringing that creativity to life in a spectacular multiplayer game." These are the words, in translation.

Unfortunately for the moment it is not possible to know more. There are no details on the type of multiplayer game the Ghost of Tsushima team would be working on. This could be a cooperative PvE mode, or a PvP mode. The job request includes extremely generic details that apply to any online game.

Ghost of Tsushima Legends was a welcome surprise Remember that this would not be the first multiplayer game made by Sucker Punch. Ghost of Tsushima received an online cooperative mode known as Legends a few months after its release. We also add that, recently, Sucker Punch ran a job posting for a writer who wishes to "write stories set in feudal Japan".

Based on clues and the success of Ghost of Tsushima (6.5 million of copies sold since launch), it is impossible not to take into consideration the possibility that Sucker Punch is working on a new chapter that includes a multiplayer mode since D1, perhaps more expanded than the original one. For now it is only speculation, of course: we have no official information about it.

Ghost of Tsushima Developer Seemingly Working on a New Multiplayer Game

Sucker Punch Productions, the developer of Ghost of Tsushima on PlayStation 4, is seemingly working on a new multiplayer game. While nothing has been officially announced as of this writing, a new job posting from the company's website may provide some hints at its future plans. Apparently, the team is currently looking for a 'Multiplayer/Network Programmer' for a position at the studio's headquarters located in Bellevue, WA. Obviously, the exact nature of the project is impossible to determine at this time, but it seems that fans can expect to see some kind of co-op experience in the new game.

'We are looking for the whole package: someone with the necessary skills to investigate, define, implement and deploy networking features that support a smooth and engaging cooperative game play experience,' the listing reads.

While video game developers tend to be secretive about unannounced projects, job listings such as this one are a great way to uncover hints about things to come. The internet has given developers a much greater ability to find talent based around the world, but it has also given gamers a greater glimpse into the hiring process and how it shapes things to come.

Unfortunately, it will likely be some time before fans know more about the game. Video game development can be a very long process, and Ghost of Tsushima has been available less than a year. Prior to that game, Sucker Punch released Infamous Second Son and its First Light DLC in 2014. Fans won't necessarily have to wait another five years for the studio's next release, but development could still be fairly early. It's also possible that this could be related to Ghost of Tsushima's multiplayer Legends mode that released last year. That mode is referenced in the job listing, though it's unclear if there's a direct connection to the upcoming project.

For now, fans will just have to wait and see what gets announced next! Sucker Punch is owned by Sony, so fans can expect to see the team's next project release on PS4 or PS5.

Ghost of Tsushima is available now, exclusively on PlayStation 4. You can check out all our previous coverage of the game right here.
