He also went on to state that Insomniac Games owns the IP so in there is potential for more content coming out in the future whether Microsoft is involved or not . He was quick to add that at this point he can make no promises.
“We are passionate about that franchise, and we own it, so you may see more Sunset in the future from us. No promises, and no timeline to speak of, but it is something that represents our willingness to create unexpected experiences”.
Insomniac games has in the past expressed a willingness to port Sunset Overdrive to PC, but the studio claims that decision also requires permission from Microsoft.
Microsoft says a PC version of Sunset Overdrive is not planned. The company claims that they enjoy working with Insomniac on Sunset Overdrive and are proud of the game but for now have nothing to say regarding a sequel.
