During all the E3 2014 festivities last week, I had the opportunity to check out a behind closed doors presentation for Sunset Overdrive. Shortly after the demonstration ended, I asked Creative Director Marcus Smith about the future of the series beyond their upcoming release. He offered up the following quote on the matter:
We have already planned out both sequels and spinoffs that will take place within the Sunset Overdrive universe. Of course, the first game would have to sell well for us to fully explore these options, but the ideas have already started flowing.
Sunset Overdrive is currently one of the biggest exclusives coming to the Xbox One later this year. While Microsoft Studios are the publishers behind this game, it is currently unknown if they outright own the franchise beyond this game. After having a look at what this title has to offer, I personally hope that they aim to own it one day because the Xbox One needs more exclusives for fans to look forward to.
Sunset Overdrive is schedule to launch on the Xbox One on October 28th.
Do any of you think Microsoft will lock up the rights to the exclusive for life? Is it possible that we could see Sunset Overdrive 2 on the PS4 much like Titanfall 2? Please feel free to let us know your thoughts on the matter in the comments section below.
