Sony picks up InFamous dev Sucker Punch

Sony shoring up their first-party stable

It has been revealed that Sony has bought their first-party developer Sucker Punch for an unknown amount.

The deal brings the InFamous and Sly Cooper developer into the Sony Worldwide Studios fold alongside the likes of MediaMolecule and God of War developer SWS Santa Monica Studios.

Sucker Punch's Brian Fleming said: "When you're an independent little guy with one little project, with every game, you are risking your life and livelihood. This will help us creatively to be less inhibited."

InFamous 2 has fared well at retail since its launch back in mid-June and a new Sly Cooper title is expected some time next year.
