Nate Fox Says Future inFamous Games Could Work Like Assassin’s Creed
With the highly anticipated inFamous: Second Son finally out, people may be wondering where Sucker Punch goes from here. In an interview with UK Official PlayStation Magazine, Nate Fox talked about the potential for more games in the series
“inFamous is a really broad concept – an everyday person gets powers and decides if they want to use them for good or evil. That could be anybody of any age, any gender, any time, any country. It’s as wide open as superhero fiction.”
In the case of inFamous: Second Son he says, “This is Delsin’s story, it’s in a new city with new powers. His journey is the point. Cole’s story was those other games. In the future there could be other inFamous games about completely different characters. So long as it has that core thing which is trying to earnestly say ‘Okay, she gets powers, is she going to hurt or help?’ and try and explore that.”
You can speculate whether the use of the pronoun ‘she’ hints at a female protagonist in a future game. When asked about it Fox also added that the series could work like Assassin’s Creed with different characters and time periods, but the same core mechanics.
“Yeah, that’s a great example. Those games have that feeling. Spiritually, like Bioshock to Bioshock Infinite, there’s not really a lot of overlap in those games but you can tell they’re the same”.
