Sucker Punch Productions has announced that they’ll be winding down the development of Ghost of Tsushima following its latest update. Yesterday’s patch 2.18 will be the last major update that the game will receive, though the studio will continue to monitor feedback and make changes accordingly if necessary.
Patch 2.18 for Ghost of Tsushima mainly focuses on Legends, though the improvements are minor. It also offers a couple of fixes to the single-player campaign. Beyond that, Sucker Punch will wind down all development on the game, possibly to shift their attention to newer titles currently in the works.

Sucker Punch also confirmed that they’re not actively working on any updates to Ghost of Tsushima as of now. Any future updates will instead focus on fixing critical bugs and issues, but they probably won’t be major fixes.
“We want to say a huge thank you to the entire community for the incredible amount of support and feedback we’ve gotten since launch,” the studio wrote. “When Legends launched in October 2020, we never expected to have such an active community more than a year and a half later, and we could not be more thankful to everyone who has been with us on this journey!”
It’s rumoured that Sucker Punch are currently working on a sequel to Ghost of Tsushima, along with a possible Sly Cooper revival. However, the latter is believed to instead be in development at Concrete Genie studio Pixelopus, at least according to recent reports.
Ghost of Tsushima received a Director’s Cut last year, which provided PS5 enhancements along with a new expansion in Iki Island. The original game launched in 2020 to mostly positive reviews, praised for its striking visuals, gripping story and tight combat.
Ghost of Tsushima is currently available for PS4 and PS5.
