Hey guys. I'm new and pretty nervous never done this before. But I've wanted to ask in a forum
Do you guys think Sony will bring back our beloved characters and games like Sly cooper, Jak and daxter, Dark cloud, Rogue galaxy, Infamous, Wipeout sequel and others I didn't name?

@Jriibz Who knows. They may well remaster a few of those games but you would think some are currently on hold indefinitely. Most of the developers are working on other things - Infamous and Sly developers, Sucker Punch are working on Ghost of Tsushima, Jak and Daxter devs, Naughty Dog are working on the Last of Us 2, the devs of Wipeout are gone as Sony closed down the Studio in 2012 and the other two games were developed by Level 5 who make Ni No Kuni as well as games for Nintendo like Professor Layton and mobile/iOS games so I don't know if they will be returning to Dark Cloud or Rogue Galaxy. They haven't returned to those in 13yrs so I would say its very unlikely.

At most you may get Sly/Jak remasters and maybe Sucker Punch will return to Infamous in the future but I personally wouldn't think any of these franchises will be coming to a PS4 in the near future.

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

@BAMozzy I agree for the most part sadly
However Level 5 said they are more than willing to make Dark Cloud 3, but it is up to Sony. And sanzaru games are the ones that made the latest sly cooper , maybe they can hire them or other developers?
Anyway yeah

@Jriibz Regardless, I still think its very unlikely that any of these in particular will be returning in the near future to a PS4. At most you may get a remaster of Sly or Jak but I doubt we will see anything 'new' this generation. Maybe games like DC3 will be made for PS5 or, like we saw with a few Japanese games, a late release on PS4 as Sony do support their 'old' console for an extra year or so in Japan. It could then come to PS4 in the rest of the world and PS5 too but I can't see anything 'likely' before we see the PS5 launch. I would never say never - look at Crash Bandicoot but I do think its less likely we will see the Level 5 games than the others and I can't see a new Infamous happening soon either. Sony could ask Blue Point to do a Jak or Sly remaster after the success of Crash and we recently had a Wipeout remaster so its possible they may look at bringing a new one - maybe a PS5 launch title instead or as well as Knack 3?

I could see an inFamous game on PS5, though I'm more 50/50 on it depending how Ghost of Tsushima does and if Sucker Punch still has a passion for the series. I wouldn't mind seeing a female-led inFamous game, if SP needed something to spice things up and make the project more enticing.

The other franchises I think are pretty much done. Though I did really enjoy Sanzaru's take on Sly and wouldn't mind another one from that studio.

I NEED God of war 2. I have it both on PS2 and on PS3 and I still have both PS2 and PS3 (PS2 because I loved it so much that I can't give it away, PS3 because I can't find a shop that want it since I don't have anymore an original controller but only a compatible one) but it is just too annoying to set everything up to play games on those older consoles.
I don't want to swap consoles everytime I want to play an older game it is really frustrating.
God of war 2 is my favourite game in the series and one of my all time favourite games overall!
I would also like some older third party games like Soul Calibur 3, Need for speed High stakes (PS1), Child of Eden, STreet fighter X Tekken and others but this obviously would involve other people too not just Sony.
I really hate the lack of backward compatibility on consoles. I have always loved consoles and never like PCs too much but now I'm starting to think I maybe should change my habits...

@Jriibz Welcome!

I can only speak to one of your named franchises, Jak & Daxter. I'm a huge fan and loved the remastered trilogy on PS3. Part of me was therefore really surprised when Sony released the trilogy, as well as Jak X, as simple PS2 Classics on PS4. They weren't given the same level of care and attention and it was a bit of a shame; as such, I've yet to replay Jak III or Jak X on my PS4.

The only reason I can think for them doing this was that they wanted to test market reaction to Jak & Daxter as a franchise, before putting money into a full PS4 remaster and / or remake. For that, I'm glad that I voted with my wallet and picked them all up, even if a superior version comes along in a year or two and makes them obsolete. I also think that the PS2 Classic release process started before, or at the same time as, Crash Bandicoot's remastered trilogy made such a huge impact (the first Jak & Daxter PS2 Classic was given away as a pre-order bonus download with Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, around this time last year, same time as the N'Sane Trilogy's release). Sony might be re-adjusting their strategy after seeing such results.

I'm not sure how well the WipEout Omega Collection sold. Unfortunately, since I'm not all that great at gaming, I've only managed 10% trophies on that since launch, and if others were similarly put off by the skill level required, I could see it taking a sales hit. If it was successful enough, however, I'm sure Sony are thinking about what they could do next.

Sony are awesome at surprising us, though. Never say never!

Anyone who knows me probably already knows how badly I want Sly to comeback. I hated the cliff-hanger from Thieves in Time's ending, and I hate it more as time goes on without a Sly 5 in sight. Infamous is another game I'd like to see come back, since I love the games and thought Second Son was a shade disappointing story wise (compared to Cole's adventures, I thought Delsin's story could've used some seasoning). Wipeout would be great too, as I love playing Wipeout HD. I know Studio Liverpool gone dodo, but I don't see why the team behind the Omega Collection couldn't do a new installment.

The others I can take or leave. I haven't played Rogue Galaxy or Dark Cloud, but I'm not in a massive hurry to Jak back. I am a fan of the series, but Jak did what he came to do and then that was it. He's not dead, just done. And honestly, I would rather not have a Thieves in Time-like situation for Jak.

@Jriibz I think Ratchet & Clank will return at some point. I think right now they're just on break until Insomniac finishes Spider-Man. I'm guessing the team needed a break from the series (and considering how many titles are in the series since it's beginning in 2002, I wouldn't blame them.) and come up with some original stuff like Sunset Overdrive and Song of the Deep. I doubt we'll see Ratchet & Clank back on PS4, but I'm positive they'll be around next gen.

And personally, I'd love to see them return. It's my favorite PS exclusive series and I think regardless if they return to the post-Nexus timeline or do a remake of the second game, there's still life in the series.

I quite fancy a remake of the original lemmings. This time with zoom abilities so you can properley get amongst the Lemmings.

Another game which would be a good remaster is Theme Park. With trophy support it would be ace.

@Jaz007 Lemmings Augmented Reality would be a win.

@themcnoisy I'd never even thought of that, but thanks to your post I'm now convinced that there's a gaping chasm in my life where a remastered Lemmings should be.

@Jriibz Welcome to the forums!

I think we will get another Infamous, as well as a WipEout. WipeEout Omega Collection sold really well, picking up it's first ever UK #1. It's probably going to continue to sell well following the VR update.
I'm almost certain we'll get another Rachet & Clank. The remake sold well and was according to Insomniac their most successful title to date.
As for the others it's difficult to say. ND aren't going back to Jak & Daxter and Sucker Punch aren't going back to Sly- they've moved on.

I would love to see a Jak & Daxter and Sky Cooper return . Ratchet is back in a sense even tho it was a remake. Some other franchises that need to return is Infamous , Ape Escape , Resistance and ModNation Racers ! It's crazy Sony has so many IP's that are dormant they can bring back anytime. Heck even if they don't want some of their current AAA studio's making them they can always get an outside team or just completely make a new studio.

Lemmings. Loved that game back in the day.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.
