US studio Sucker Punch is knee deep in development of PlayStation 3 exclusive inFamous 2, but it's admitted it would give "serious thought" to a request from Sony to create a third game in the superhero series.
"We'll see where we want to go next," Sucker Punch co-founder Bruce Oberg told Eurogamer.
"That could be with Sony. We have a great relationship with them. We love the PlayStation platform. I'm not lying when I tell you it's a really killer technological platform for us to work on.
"The support and marketing, and also their approach to us, to let us make the game we want to make, is really incredible. Our relationship with Sony has been just incredible, all through the Sly series and all through inFamous."
Independent studio Sucker Punch does not own the inFamous intellectual property – an arrangement it describes as a "small price to pay" for the "freedom to make the game we want to make".
But what of inFamous 3? "We would give it serious, serious thought," Oberg replied.
"We know how lucky we are. We're really lucky to have such a great relationship with such a top-flight publisher that lets us create original IP. The number of studios creating original IP is few and far between."
Infamous 2, due out next year, continues to adventure of protagonist Cole McGrath as he battles horrible beasties in the New Orleans-inspired city of New Morais.
Christian Donlan went hands-on for Eurogamer in June. Gameplay video is below.
