Sucker Punch Productions have answered the rumours of inFAMOUS and Sly Cooper games development, Sea of Stars has been delayed to 2023 to manage the developers health, and modders behind Fallout London have been offered jobs at Bethesda.

Sea of Stars Delayed

The highly anticipated turn-based RPG Sea of Stars, developed by Sabotage Studio, has unfortunately been hit with a delay. The developer recently released a statement addressing the delay, emphasizing the importance of maintaining the well-being of their team and delivering a high-quality finished product.


In their statement, the team acknowledged that they are approaching a significant milestone in the game's development. However, they also recognized the need to ensure both the quality of life for their team and the overall quality of the game. As a result, they officially announced that Sea of Stars will now be released in 2023.


While the delay may disappoint eager fans who have been eagerly awaiting the game's release, it is encouraging to see Sabotage Studio prioritizing the welfare of their developers. The industry has been plagued by reports of excessive crunch and overworking, so it is refreshing to see a studio taking a different approach and valuing the well-being of their team.


The statement from the team also mentioned their gratitude for the support and positivity shown by the community. To show their appreciation during the wait, they are actively exploring options to release a playable slice of the game to the public later this year. This gesture demonstrates their commitment to keeping fans engaged and excited about the game, even during the extended development period.

Fallout Modders Offered Jobs

In other gaming news, the talented modders behind the Fallout London project have received a thrilling opportunity. The Fallout London mod, which aims to provide a DLC-sized experience for Fallout 4 players, has caught the attention of Bethesda, the studio responsible for the Fallout franchise.


Several members of the Fallout London team have been offered positions within Bethesda. For instance, the Lead Tech Advisor for the project will now be joining Bethesda as an Associate Level Designer. Another team member was also offered a job to work on Fallout 76, though they ultimately turned it down.


This is not the first time that modders have been recognized by game developers for their exceptional work and subsequently offered official positions. It is heartening to see talented individuals receive validation and opportunities within the industry. Such success stories serve as a testament to the significant contributions that modders make to the gaming community.

Sucker Punch Productions Projects

Turning our attention to Sucker Punch Productions, the well-known PlayStation Studio responsible for the recent release of Ghost of Tsushima, there have been rumors circulating about their future projects. In response, Sucker Punch took to their blog to address these rumors and provide some clarity.


According to the blog post, Sucker Punch stated that, as their games continue to increase in scale and complexity, their full attention is required to uphold the quality of their current project. Consequently, they revealed that they have no plans to revisit their popular franchises, inFAMOUS and Sly Cooper, at present. Furthermore, they confirmed that no other studios are currently working on projects related to these franchises.


While this news may come as disappointment to fans of the inFAMOUS and Sly Cooper series, it is important to note that Sucker Punch Productions has not ruled out the possibility of returning to these beloved franchises in the future. They expressed their fondness for the characters and left the door open for potential future developments.


As a personal fan of the inFAMOUS series, I share the sentiment of many fans who hope to see Sucker Punch revisit it at some point. However, it is crucial to respect the studio's focus on their current project and their dedication to delivering the best experience possible.


In conclusion, the gaming industry never ceases to fascinate us with its updates and announcements. While delays like the one for Sea of Stars may be disappointing in the short term, it is ultimately in the best interest of both the developers and the players to allow for additional time and ensure a polished final product. Likewise, recognizing the talent of modders and offering them official positions showcases the industry's appreciation for their invaluable contributions. As for Sucker Punch Productions, although fans may have to wait for future installments of beloved franchises, the possibility of their return still remains, keeping the hope alive.
