Following a deal with Microsoft where Insomniac will own rights to Sunset Overdrive, it has become an Xbox One exclusive.
I know PS4 gamers, I was looking forward to this one too. It’s a great move for Insomniac. Previously they’ve worked exclusively with Sony on games like Resistance: Fall of Man and it’s sequels, Ratchet & Clank and Spyro the Dragon. These games saw high sales and success but unlike Sunset Overdrive, they didn’t own any of the rights to those games.
This time they made sure before any agreements were made, it was known up front that in order to proceed they would keep the rights to Sunset Overdrive. Some conversations didn’t go past that statement. Microsoft, being the geniuses that they are, didn’t hesitate and was fine with letting Insomniac keep the rights.
And that’s the story of how Sunset Overdrive never came to the PS4.
Unfortunate as it may be, this will be huge for the Xbox One. Sunset Overdrive is one of the games everyone is looking forward to.
