Ghost of Tsushima Development Updates Sucker Punch

Former BioWare Veteran Joins Sucker Punch Productions

Former veteran BioWare level designer Jos Hendriks has joined Ghost of Tsushima studio Sucker Punch Productions after working with the Dragon Age developer for nearly 15 years. Hendriks was laid off earlier this year from BioWare, though it’s unclear if this is related to the recent lay offs from the company where 50 employees were let go in an effort to restructure the studio’s upcoming games, Dragon Age: Dreadwolf and the next Mass Effect.

Hendriks previously worked as a level designer on games like Mass Effect 2 and 3, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Anthem and Dragon Age: Dreadwolf before his departure from BioWare. He recently posted an update on his Twitter informing fans that he had now joined Sucker Punch Productions, the first-party PlayStation studio behind games like the Infamous series, Sly Cooper and Ghost of Tsushima.

Earlier this year, veteran BioWare writer Mac Walters also left the studio. Walters was best known for working on the Mass Effect and Dragon Age games.

As for the status of Dragon Age: Dreadwolf and the next Mass Effect, BioWare revealed that development on Dreadwolf was progressing smoothly, though the next Mass Effect could be much further out from release as some of the staff that was originally working on the sci-fi game were shifted over to Dreadwolf‘s development to help it cross the finish line.

It’s possible that Hendriks has joined the development of the sequel to Ghost of Tsushima, which is know is in the works thanks to job listings posted by Sucker Punch back in June 2022. Given the success of the first game, a sequel was inevitable and Sony is no stranger to making follow-ups to its acclaimed IPs.

Excitement continues to mount for Dragon Age: Dreadwolf but we also know quite a bit about the next Mass Effect thanks to references and teases over the past few years. You can read up everything we know about the anticipated sequel right here.
