The lights are on
The fourth installment of the Sly Cooper series is due out this coming fall, Sony confirmed to Game Informer.
The game is being developed by Sanzaru Games and not Sucker Punch Productions, the team behind the first three Sly titles for PlayStation 2. Sly can now time travel, and he'll be meeting up with many of his ancestors.
While you wait for a more specific release date, be sure to check out our latest preview of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time right here.
The PlayStation Blog also published a new interview with the developer that includes some new gameplay.
So excited. A seven year break in releases was the best thing that could have happened to this series. Just watching the teaser felt like reuniting with old friends.
More nostalgia! Cant wait
Sanzaru did good work with the HD collection, hopefully they can do just as good with an original game.
Still holding on to the theory of a Clockwerk return.
Love this franchise. I'll be waiting (somewhat) patiently for the actual release date.
Awesome! Platformers are hurting this year - as far as I know, besides stuff like the Jak Collection (awesome, but hardly new content), the only platformers hitting this year are Sly 4 and Epic Mickey 2 - but Sly Cooper ALONE is all the world-class, major release platformer people should need! Even though the developer is new.
But even then, Sanzaru has proven they love the franchise. Remaking all three PS2 games for the HD Collection must've given them loads of experience in a very short time on how to build a proper Sly game. And the premise is brilliant and fits in nicely with the previous titles, especially the first game (since it talked about Sly's ancestors and focused on the Thievious Raccoonus so much).
Shame that Sucker Punch isn't actually doing the game but I hope Sanzaru Games will do a good job with the reboot of the series. Dependng on how well it fares, I might check it out.
I'm still on the fence about it, but I'm excited to see more.
Nice to see Sony doing something constructive finally. Almost everything I've seen involving Sony lately has been negative.
sweet never got to play the older ones but look forward to this one.
My 2nd most anticipated game of 2012! (1st is ME3) Cant wait!
It's been awhile since I've played a Sly game, hopefully this one is as awesome as the originals.
love that sony is still hip to the platformers.
