* ApprovalOfGod: Creator/SuckerPunch on Twitter [[https://twitter.com/SuckerPunchProd/status/298860304836730880?s=20 expressed praise for the game]], stating that they had no issue with "handing over the Sly reigns to Sanzaru".

* FranchiseKiller: The financial failure of ''Thieves in Time'', along with its [[ContestedSequel very polarising reception]] from fans and gamers, would go on to throw the series right back into a state of dormancy. A planned DLC episode set in Egypt, [[spoiler:which would have very likely resolved or at least continued from the situation Sly found himself by game's end]], was promptly cancelled. A movie would be announced not long afterwards, but following years of silence and fellow Sony franchise ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' [[WesternAnimation/RatchetAndClank2016 having its movie]] turn out to be a grade-A disaster both critically ''and'' financially, it too was silently cancelled. The last anyone has heard regarding any sort of new project was a TV series announced in the movie's place, but even that seems to be undergoing some serious TroubledProduction. And if all that weren't enough, any hopes of Sanzaru continuing where they left off were quashed after they were bought out by Website/{{Facebook}} in 2020 to work as an UsefulNotes/{{Oculus|Rift}} first-party studio. While it's unlikely the Cooper Gang will never ride again, it ''is'' likely that it'll be a while before that happens.
