'Ghost Of Tsushima' Sequel 'Ghost Of Ikishima' Launching This Year

An exciting new rumour suggests that that Ghost Of Tsushima developer Sucker Punch Productions in currently working a sequel titled Ghost Of Ikishima. Even better, it's expected to launch this year.

This claim comes via Twitter user and Xboxera cofounder Shpeshal_Nick, who's accurately reported on a ton of Xbox and PlayStation information in the past. Most recently, he's nailed the last couple of PlayStation Plus lineups ahead of their actual announcements. According to him, Ghost Of Ikishima is a standalone expansion similar in scope to Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. It's expected that it'll launch on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, so nobody gets left out.

I probably don't need to tell you how much everyone loves Ghost Of Tsushima, do I? Still, check out the glowing accolades trailer below.

At the time of writing this claim is completely unverified and should be taken with the usual pinch of salt, but there's enough here to suggest that it's the real deal.

Leaving aside Shpeshal_Nick's reliable track record, there's the fact the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 lineup is looking a little sparse for the rest of this year. Releasing Ghost Of Ikishima on PlayStation 5 would also no doubt accompany the launch of an enhanced version of Ghost Of Tsushima, much in the same way Marvel's Spider-Man received a souped-up version on the new-gen console alongside Miles Morales.

It's also no secret that Sucker Punch isn't finished with the franchise. There's the in-development movie, the multiplayer Legends expansion, and job listings that have all but confirmed work on a sequel started almost as soon as the original game was released. It'll clearly be a while before any full-blooded PS5 sequel is ready, but releasing a fulsome expansion to keep fans happy and tided over seems like a great solution - one that Sony may pursue more and more if Ghost Of Ikishima turns out to be real and as successful as Miles Morales was.
