The fall release has been confirmed by the developer, but no date has yet been set.
The newest 'Sly Cooper' game is set to come out this fall, which should make a lot of gamers very happy. It's the first new Sly title in this console generation and it ends a seven year break for the series.
What will certainly be interesting to see is what influence the game's developer brings to the table. 'Thieves in Time' is the first game in the series that's not developed by Sucker Punch. Instead, Sanzaru Games - the developers that handled ports of 'The Sly Collection' - is taking the helm.
The 'Sly Cooper' series is one that took a lot of serious gamers by surprise. The first game, 'Sly Cooper and the Thievius Racoonus' came at a time when anthropomorphic animal mascots weren't cool and stealth action was handled exclusively by guys in camouflage or ninja gear. The original and both sequels earned high praise from both fans and critics alike.
You can preorder 'Sly Cooper: Theives in Time' on Amazon now.
