Hiring New Talent for Sly Cooper 5?
What’s made fans of Sly Cooper believe that Sucker Punch could be looking to hire for a potential new game in the Sly Cooper series is that the games could be described as Spy Thrillers, exactly the genre that is explicitly mentioned in the job listings themselves. There have been heavy rumors of a new Sly Cooper game in development for a long-time now, going all the way back to the start of this year. The last game released in the series was back in 2013 with Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time, which was developed by an entirely different team to Sucker Punch, Sanzaru Games. What shape this possible revival of the series may take is unknown.
