Ghost of Tsushima is already almost a year old, as the game was released in July 2020 after it was developed by Sucker Punch Productions and published by Sony. There’s a large open world available in the game, with no visible waypoints on the HUD. Players can use horses for travelling to different parts of the island.
But a mini-sequel for Ghost of Tsushima is awaited to delight many players who prefer their gaming on PlayStation 5 consoles — it’s called ‘Ghost of Ikishima’, according to a new rumor started by the Twitter user Shpeshal_Nick, who’s known as a reliable leaker.
Ghost of Ikishima will be released in 2021
The leaker also reveals that the mini-sequel is “an expandalone type game” about the size of Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The new game will be launched this year, presumably for the PS5, while a PS4 release is also pretty plausible.
Ghosts of Ikishima. An Expandalone type game. Aiming for 2021. Not sure how so many seemed to find out so quick.

According to ScreenRant.com, Ilishima (aka Iki Island) is another Japanese island located in the Tsushima Strait. The Mongol invasion from the first game also impacted the region of Iki Island. There’s a chance that the new expansion would have protagonist Jin going to the new island to deal with straggler invaders. There’s also likely a new location available in Tsushima Island to explore by the players, but only time will tell for sure.
While Ghost of Tsushima is available only for the PlayStation 4 console, it’s hard to believe that the upcoming sequel won’t be available for the same gaming machine as soon as possible. Sony can already boast about the success of the PlayStation 5 console, as the gear was sold in about 8.6 million units across the world.
