Last month, Sony Interactive Entertainment acquired Insomniac Games, the crew best-known for Ratchet & Clank and Marvel’s Spider-Man, however a crew that has additionally made loads of different video games over the 12 months, together with Sunset Overdrive, which was printed by Microsoft as an Xbox One unique in 2014. That mentioned, Insomniac Games retained the rights to the franchise, and so when Sony acquired the developer, it bought its IP, which incorporates Sunset Overdrive. In different phrases, Sony now owns a former Xbox One unique sequence. At the time, this element was a bit unclear, however PlayStation has confirmed that is certainly the case.
The affirmation comes of a brand new interview between Japanese outlet Inside Games and PlayStation Boss Shuhei Yoshida. However, sadly, no additional particulars had been disclosed. In different phrases, we have now no clue if PlayStation will re-release the sport on PS4. That mentioned we do know — because of a latest interview with PlayStation head honcho Shawn Layden — that the sequence is not actually on the thoughts of Sony, no less than in the intervening time.
“That was an excellent expertise for Insomniac they usually realized lots by that, as properly,” said Layden at the time. “As far because the IP itself, we actually haven’t turned over the recordsdata on that one to see what that really means, to be sincere. We like what they’ve been doing within the Spider-Man franchise and issues like Ratchet & Clank are actually very important sequence within the current and future. That’s what we’re concentrating on.”
Again, who is aware of what the way forward for Sunset Overdrive holds, nevertheless it appears like there will not be a sequel anytime quickly. That mentioned, I would not be shocked if the sport was ported to PS4. And possibly Insomniac Games will inject some new content material into the sport for PS4 customers. I imply, it looks like a simple sufficient port. It will not make bajillions, however it might in all probability flip a neat little revenue.
Anyway, for extra information, media, and data on PlayStation 4 — and all issues associated to the Sony console — make sure to try all of our earlier and intensive protection of the system by clicking proper right here. And, as at all times, be happy to go away a remark letting us know what you assume or hit me up on Twitter @Tyler_Fischer_ and let me know over there. Should Sony make Sunset Overdrive 2?
