Sony have splashed out a bit of cash and secured the services of longtime partners Sucker Punch Productions. The developer has been a Sony exclusive partner ever since the first Sly Cooper (released on Playstation 2 in 2001). Lately, Sucker Punch have been focusing on the Infamous series, as Sanzaru Games (responsible for the Sly Collection on PS3) are working on the fourth Sly Cooper title, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.
"Sucker Punch Productions is one of the most highly acclaimed development studios in the industry and we have enjoyed a wonderful relationship with the company for over 12 years," said president of SCE WWS, Shuhei Yoshida. "We are delighted to officially welcome them to the SCE family.
Sucker Punch will continue to operate under the same leadership, but will perhaps benefit from an even stronger relationship to their publishers.
It is currently unknown what Sucker Punch are working on after completing Infamous 2 earlier this summer.
