According to an interview conducted by the PlayStation Blog, Sucker Punch co-founder and producer Brian Fleming confirms that PlayStation 4 exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son will not feature user-created levels a la inFAMOUS 2.
When asked if the game would host user-generated content like its predecessor, Fleming responded, "UGC is not a part of this title. It was part of inFAMOUS 2, but not a part of Second Son."
It was confirmed earlier this year that the game would not support a multiplayer component, though many were still crossing their fingers for user-generated content. Surely, Fleming lulled doubts that were casted over the game's bulk of replay value.
"The inFAMOUS games always have secondary content spread throughout the world," Fleming said. "There’s a fairly large DUP presence inside the city that remains to be cleared out after you finish the main game. They’ll continue to launch incursions into the city after you’ve wrapped up the campaign, so they’ll be plenty to keep you going. And then, of course, for a lot of players the first thing they’ll want to do is go back and play the other 'karmic' direction. Between that mix of things, people should have plenty to do in the after-game and in their second playthrough."
inFAMOUS: Second Son is just a little over a week away, on track to hit shelves worldwide on March 21, 2014.
