Sunset Overdrive was one of the better games for the Xbox One. So much so that till this day it’s one of the reasons to own Microsoft’s console. And while Xbox chief Phil Spencer has been silent on what to expect in the way of a sequel, that hasn’t stopped developer Insomniac Games from chiming in.
“You’d have to ask Microsoft,” said Insomniac President Ted Price to Game Informer before hinting that it might not be restricted to the solitary game.
“We are passionate about that franchise, and we own it, so you may see more Sunset in the future from us,” Price said. “No promises, and no timeline to speak of, but it is something that represents our willingness to create unexpected experiences.”
Could we see a sequel? Not in the short term at least. Insomniac is working on the PS4-exclusive Spider-Man game as well as multiplayer-centric game, The Unspoken, a VR title with a season’s worth of content.
With having shipped the stellar Ratchet and Clank as well as VR efforts such as Feral Rites and Edge of Nowhere in 2016, Sunset Overdrive fans will be curious to see where Sunset Overdrive 2, if that’s what it would be called, would go into development. Hopefully, sooner rather than later.
