A listing for a Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut has appeared on the website for the Entertainment Software Ratings Board.
Though neither Sucker Punch nor PlayStation have confirmed such a title in the works, the rating for what’s presumed to be a new version of Sucker Punch’s 2020 adventure has been spotted by Video Games Chronicle. Though the listing doesn’t give us any detail on what we can expect in the Director’s Cut, it’s probably a safe bet to at least assume it’ll package in the downloadable Ghosts of Tsushima: Legends multiplayer expansion that arrived a few months after launch.
Perhaps most intriguingly, however, is that PlayStation 5 mention. While the game does get some new-hardware benefits in the form of 60FPS and faster loading times thanks to Game Boost, it’s thought that perhaps this version will include more dedicated next-gen enhancements for the new console.
To add further fuel to the fire, industry insider and XboxEra.com co-founder Shpeshal_Nick claimed a few days ago that Sucker Punch were working on what he called an “expandalone type game” for 2021 entitled Ghosts of Ikishima, although neither Sony nor Sucker Punch have commented on that rumour so far.
Ghost of Tsushima launched exclusively for the PlayStation 4 in 2020 to a very warm reception, including from us. Josh said in his review “When you’re cantering through its serene peaks, re-enacting your favourite samurai-movie battles, it’s difficult not to come to a simple conclusion. That was brilliant!” We’ll update you if there’s any confirmation on these rumours.
