Future inFAMOUS sequels could take place in 'any time, any country'

Super-powered PlayStation 4 exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son has got off to a blazing start, launching to positive reviews and a number one spot on the chart. Now the discussion turns to where studio Sucker Punch will go next, and Official PlayStation Magazine has asked Nate Fox, the game's director, if being pegged as "the inFAMOUS studio" will hold them back.

"That's a good curse to be saddled with," Fox replied. "inFAMOUS is a really broad concept - an everyday person gets powers and decides if they want to use them for good or evil. That could be anybody of any age, any gender, any time, any country. It's as wide open as superhero fiction."

"This is Delsin's story, it's in a new city with new powers," Fox went on to say about Second Son. "His journey is the point. Cole's story was those other games. In the future there could be other inFAMOUS games about completely different characters." It's at this point that OPM suggested the history-hopping, character-swapping Assassin's Creed as a potential model for the future of the series. "Yeah, that's a great example," agreed Fox. "Those games have that feeling. Spiritually, like Bioshock to Bioshock Infinite, there's not really a lot of overlap in those games but you can tell they're the same."

What do you think? Any locations or eras you'd like to explore with the aid of superpowers?

inFAMOUS: Second Son is out now exclusively for PlayStation 4.
