Sunset Overdrive

Why is Sunset Overdrive Xbox One Exclusive?


If you’re a PS4 player who watched jealously as Microsoft and Insomniac Games demonstrated Sunset Overdrive’s explosively colorful open-world action gameplay, you probably wanted to know why it was exclusive to that system. You probably assumed the answer was truckloads of money, but Insomniac gave a different explanation to Game Revolution.

According to Insomniac Founder and CEO Ted Price:

We have a long history and great relationship with Sony and we will continue to work closely with them moving forward. However when Microsoft announced the Xbox One we felt that what Microsoft was offering in terms of the platform feature set and Xbox Live presence was a great match for Sunset Overdrive.

For example, our multiplayer mode in the game called Chaos Squad supports eight players traversing a giant open world together to take on randomized missions. This is not a simple feature to create. Yet Microsoft’s muscle on the platform and Xbox Live fronts has been invaluable in helping us create a unique multiplayer experience. Furthermore the overall partnership has been seamless, and we’ve been extremely happy with the level of support and commitment we’ve received for Sunset Overdrive.

It’s good to hear that Insomniac will make games for Sony in the future. But, I guess if you don’t have an Xbox One and you want to play Sunset Overdrive, you’ll have to start saving up before the October 28 launch date.
