Ghost of Tsushima is definitely one of the best games to be released this year thanks to developer Sucker Punch doing a great job. Moving forward, it looks like the development team is already working their way on a possible sequel.
According to reports, Sucker Punch has opened up a new position in their company. They are currently looking for a narrative writer who is knowledgeable about the Japanese feudal era. It’s definitely obvious that something like this might serve as a direct sequel to the popular PlayStation 4 game.
As the adventures of Jin have been put to an end temporarily, it’s highly probable that the new Ghost of Tsushima game will be told from the perspective of a new hero. While it will also possible that Ghost of Tsushima 2 will not be a direct sequel, it will certainly take some kind of inspiration from Jin Sakai’s journey. With this said, fans are hyped to know that the game will be set during the Japanese feudal era.
However, this is purely speculation at this point as there are still no announcements by either Sucker Punch or Sony that a sequel is in the works. For now, the new multiplayer mode called Ghost of Tsushima Legends is now available. The free update has already become a famous addition to the PlayStation exclusive, bringing players back to the game for more.
Ghost of Tsushima set high standards not only for action-adventure games but for samurai games in general. For the sequel, fans of the franchise will definitely want the developers to further enhance the game’s combat mechanics found in the first game. Enhancing this feature might be where the developers focus on the sequel.
Based on feedback, fans also want more in-depth elements in the sequel. Even though Sucker Punch desired to prevent giving fans numbers to worry about, integrating more RPG aspects adds depth to the game as well. Slight changes like stats might aid players to feel more accomplished in completing certain challenges.
One of the best factors in the original game was the story-rich side quests. Of course, every player wants this feature to return. However, it would make things better if developers include consequences to every choice a player makes in the game. This would definitely assist in making every action more memorable. While decision making is present in the original game, the questline follows a direct path.
Ghost of Tsushima is an impressive game as well as its recently released multiplayer mode, to say the least. The developers should utilize the game’s momentum to innovate an entirely new series exclusive to the PlayStation. Fans can only hope that the sequel will come sooner rather than later.
