If Sony ever decides to bring the Sly Cooper franchise back from the dead, it will no longer do so alongside Sanzaru Games. That's because the developer of the exclusive Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time for PlayStation 3 has just been purchased by Facebook for an undisclosed fee.
In a move similar to that of Beat Games, the studio will now develop games for the line-up of the company of virtual reality headsets – presumably based on the success it saw with the recent Asgard & # 39; s Wrath. Largely regarded as one of the best VR titles that are not on PlayStation VR, it is a game with a lot of praise. The chief designer of Thieves in Time recently stated that if fans wanted Sly Cooper to come back, they would have to make a fuss about it, and said: "We are always ready to dig in and it was a great franchise to wear to "It was a great project. So, I can only say that if you want more Sly Cooper, Sony will let you know." That is clearly not going to happen anymore.
Are you disappointed when you see that the developer was caught by Facebook? Did you hope it would get another chance to make a Sly Cooper game? Mourn in the comments below.
