The Entertainment Software Ratings Board, the group that gives ratings to video games, has reportedly added a listing for “Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut” for both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 (but not PC as has been speculated).
This suggests a new ‘Game of the Year’-style version of the title is on the way, but the listing comes despite the fact Sony hasn’t officially announced it yet. It has also raised questions about what it might include.
The “Legends of Tsushima” multiplayer expansion, a new Game+ mode, and a next-gen upgrade have all already been added to the game for free since its launch last July, and the title boasts no microtransactions or loot boxes of any kind.
One possibility is the recently leaked reports of a full standalone expansion titled “Ghost of Ikishima” with this director’s cut containing both the original game and the expansion in one package.
If true, then an ESRB rating suggests this may be coming sooner than expected and could hit shelves fairly soon. Neither Sony nor Sucker Punch has made any announcements about the game’s future yet, but we may hear more at a new Sony ‘State of Play’ event expected to take place in the next few weeks.
