Sucker Punch Productions co-founder Chris Zimmerman has said he does not expect Sony’s purchase of the studio to have a big effect on day-to-day operations.
It was announced on Monday that the inFAMOUS and Sly Cooper developer had been acquired by the platform giant, guaranteeing the PlayStation exclusivity for its future titles, but Zimmerman doesn’t expect too much of a change.
“I don’t think it will have much of an effect on our day-to-day operations,” he said in a Q&A with GameSpot. “Everyone that’s been here for the past dozen years is still here; we still have the same goals in mind. We’re still working on the same things.
“So the day-to-day isn’t going to change, I think. We’re expecting this is going to put us in a position where we can continue to work on innovative genre-defining content. That’s kind of why we’re doing this. And we’ve been in that position before, and we think we’re going to continue to be in that position.”
Unfortunately there’s no word on what project Sucker Punch is working on at this moment in time, with development of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time being charged by California developer Sanzaru Games. Our best guess would be a third inFAMOUS title, or even something for Sony’s upcoming handheld, PS Vita.
