News | Sucker Punch is working on a standalone Ghost of Ikishima expansion

Ghost of Tsushima developer Sucker Punch Productions may be working on a standalone expansion for the game.

That reports Xbox Era journalist Nick Baker. Baker recently correctly predicted unannounced games, including the sequel to Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle.

The game would be called ‘Ghost of Ikishima’ and should be released this year. In response to a tweet, Baker reveals that the game’s concept is similar to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and Spider-Man: Miles Morales, presumably making it smaller in size. Platforms are still unknown.

Ikishima, in Dutch Ika, is a smaller island southeast of Tsushima. In 1274, the same year Ghost of Tsushima takes place, Iki was also conquered by the Mongols.

The game has not been officially announced yet.
