Ghost of Tsushima PS5 Upgrade Might be in the Works

The LinkedIn page of Sucker Punch's Dave Malloy may have hinted at the same.

Sucker Punch’s Ghost of Tsushima was one of the last major PS4 exclusives to launch for the console before the PS5 came out late last year, and as with any major game that releases at the end of a console’s life cycle, there are always questions about if it will get a remaster to bring it over natively to newer hardware. There might be some evidence to suggest that Sucker Punch might indeed be working on something like that for their open world samurai epic.

Sucker Punch’s cinematic creative director Dave Molloy might have some tidbits in his LinkedIn profile’s about section that may have spilled the beans. The final bits of that section mention that he is “presently working on the Ghost of Tsushima game for Sony PlayStation.” So why exactly is that interesting? Well, because until very recently (just yesterday, in fact), that sentence said that he was working on the game for “Sony PS5”, before that got quickly edited out (as spotted by Game Rant).

Is it possible that Sucker Punch are working on a full-fledged remaster for Ghost of Tsushima in order to better leverage the PS5’s hardware? The game already benefits from a boosted frame rate when played on the PS5, but a native port is by no means out of the question. Then again, job ads have indicated that Sucker Punch are working on a sequel as well, so maybe that’s what this is referring to.

Given how successful Ghost of Tsushima has been, especially in terms of sales, it wouldn’t surprise us if Sony does indeed greenlight a fancy new PS5 remaster. Until such time that’s officially confirmed though, this is just speculation and conjecture, so take it with a grain of salt.
