Sucker Punch to reveal a 'big secret' tonight

UPDATE: The secret has been revealed! Infamous 2 will feature user-generated missions which will appear in the game world. The missions you and others create will be designated with a different color than normal missions. We'll have a preview with more details later tonight. Our original article is below.

Sucker Punch Productions, the developer behind the Infamous and Sly Cooper games, will be revealing a "big secret" at GDC tonight, according to a post on its Facebook page. Oh, and it's not Sly 4.

"Today is very exciting day," wrote the developer. "We've been holding a big secret for the last two years and at GDC later today... We get to tell you all about it :)"

The developer went on to clarify that the announcement of Sly 4, which was teased in The Sly Collection, is not the secret, saying, "Ok everyone No a sly 4 announcement is not the secret. Sorry to disappoint some."

We've dispatched the formidable Mikel Reparaz to the scene to absorb the blow of whatever Sucker Punch plans to hit him with. Our guess is that it has to do with Infamous 2, but perhaps the developer is hiding something new behind its back? Our typey fingers will let you know!

    They were dead the whole time they've been making games?! What a twist!

    chrisat928 got the correct answer.

    Sorry, forgot how long my window had been open since my last refresh. So, yeah, kind of behind the GR update now.

    "Big secret" was already revealed on GI: Infamous 2 will have user-generated missions. That is right: Cole is going 2.0 LBP-style. The best designers will be highly rated, and potentially become "Sucker Punch Featured Content", which will populate everyone's game by default, making them famous (or inFamous XD)

    Glad that we have Reparaz on the Job!

    i lol if the big secret is changing back to the old new cole everyone hated.
  • LAKERdynasty247 - March 2, 2011 1:02 a.m.

    Its probably something like playable in 3-D. In other words, something I dont give a damn about.
  • oufour - March 2, 2011 1:01 a.m.

    infamous PSP2. Something NGP related.
  • ultimatepunchrod - March 2, 2011 12:55 a.m.

    i really dont think its going multi-platform, it says only on PS on the official box art
  • donutman7 - March 2, 2011 12:47 a.m.

    I'm not trying to be a fanboy or anything, but I really don't hope it wont be released to other consoles. Well yeah, I am being a fanboy, I liked infamous as an exclusive, that was on the list of top 10s of sucker punch, making games only for PS
  • TDUBBS - March 2, 2011 12:45 a.m.

    InFamous 2 multiplayer. At least I hope not...
  • Eliath - March 2, 2011 12:40 a.m.

    I like Sucker Punch so I am hoping for a new IP. Sequels are great, but I love me new IPs.
  • essiy - March 2, 2011 12:39 a.m.

    Oh my GAWD (Or as I believe Mikel puts it "GAWHD") I can't wait for it to come out. Hype aside, my hypothesis is that they might announce possible "move" controls, but I doubt that. I'm putting my money on a release for PC and maybe Xbox. Who knows, I can't wait to read the article which I predict will be put up tomorrow.
  • ninjaemperor - March 2, 2011 12:36 a.m.

    Sly zero, a PREQUEL! Please, I just need more Sly.
  • Shamanoid - March 2, 2011 12:25 a.m.

    Infamous on PC or xbox! that's my guess atleast. If it is right, owe me a free steam game of my choice.
