Ghost of Tsushima 2 is becoming one of Sony’s worst kept secrets, it seems. A few new job listings at studio Sucker Punch strongly hint at the sequel being in development. One in particular is seeking an encounter designer that specialises in delivering “open-world encounters” with a focus on melee combat and stealth.
Sucker Punch is currently hunting for a designer who can “deliver interesting and varied encounters in an open-world game, with a particular focus on melee combat and stealth.” Meanwhile, other job listings are seeking candidates who are familiar with the first game’s systems. All signs point to Ghost of Tsushima 2.

This doesn’t appear to be any expansion or DLC to the original title that we know of, as the first game already received the Iki Island expansion alongside its Director’s Cut last year. If this does turn out to be Ghost of Tsushima 2, we may have to wait a while until an official reveal as it seems to be a bit early in development. It will also undoubtedly arrive on PS5.
As with all speculation, take this with a grain of salt. The job listings at Sucker Punch don’t explicitly mention a Ghost of Tsushima sequel, but there’s enough evidence to suggest that the acclaimed PlayStation studio is already actively working on it.
As of January 2022, Ghost of Tsushima managed to cross 8 million units sold – an impressive feat considering its exclusivity to PS4. It would eventually find its way to PS5 via the enhanced Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut released last August, which included the aforementioned Iki Island expansion along with a plethora of technical improvements for Sony’s newer hardware.
Speaking of Sucker Punch, previous reports suggested that the studio’s IP Sly Cooper was set to make a return on PlayStation, but it will reportedly be handled by Concrete Genie developer Pixel Opus.
