My1sttoday Gaming — Ghost of Tsushima 2 may have multiplayer mode according to new job listing.
The rumor of Ghost of Tsushima 2 in the works, have been around since 2020, folks have been speculating that Sucker Punch is cooking up something in their studio which they’re not ready to announce yet.
The recent job listings have added fuel to the fire, lighting the claims that the next installment is the works, it also suggest that they may be thinking of adding multiplayer into the game from the start.
Is Ghost of Tsushima 2 In The Works?
Sucker Punch is working on a AAA “open-world game, with a particular focus on melee combat and stealth” according to the listing for an Encounter Designer.
However, new listings suggest there is also a “spectacular multiplayer game” in development and the Senior Multiplayer Mission Designer needs to “build missions that combine challenging combat encounters and cooperative mechanics together with beautiful environments and engaging stories”.
These missions are intended to be replayable multiple times and suggest a co-op multiplayer experience rather than a competitive multiplayer experience.
The campaign will have “the narrative golden path, secondary mission content, and even systemic encounters.” According to a new listing for an AI Systems Designer, the world will “be populated with compelling characters” and will include “combat engagements via buddy NPC interactions”.
The listing for a Senior Multiplayer Mission Designer goes a bit further, describing “missions that combine challenging combat encounters and cooperative mechanics together with beautiful environments and engaging stories.” We’re assuming these listings are all for the same game and it could be that a Legends-type experience is included in a sequel from day one.
