UPDATE 05/10/2021: Journalist Jeff Grubb who has previously been right about different leaks in the past has reportedly also corroborated the existence of a new Sly Cooper game in development with a image pulled from Imgur.
Stealthy raccoon Sly Cooper is set to make a comeback, according to Nick Baker, aka Shpeshal_Nick of XboxEra.
Baker revealed on Twitter that he’s heard from two Sony sources that Sly Cooper is coming back, but didn’t provide any further details just yet.
Hey Sly fans. I guess some good news? My “normal” Sony source (was originally told by a newer source) just confirmed to me that Sly is indeed coming back. That’s it. That’s all. Just an update since many of you still DM me to this day.
Sly Cooper has been keeping a low profile for quite a few years now, and hasn’t been seen since Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, which was developed by Sanzaru Games. The original games were made by Sucker Punch Productions.
Baker is obviously a very reliable source for gaming leaks, but as Sony hasn’t announced anything official at this point, it’s probably best to keep those expectations in check. Hopefully, a Sly Cooper return will involve a full-on PS5 revival, but we’ll have to wait and see.
