Insomniac Games hopes to make a Sunset Overdrive sequel soon
Ted Price, CEO of Insomniac Games recently sat down with IGN’s Ryan McCaffery. Ted discussed the future of one their older yet unique titles Sunset Overdrive. Released as an exclusive for the Xbox One in 2014 it’s a third-person action adventure set in a skater-inspired world with elements from Prince of Persia, Jet Set Radio, and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater all wrapped in one.

“I think one of the great things about starting a franchise and having the opportunity to make sequels,” Price said, “is that you’ve, in many cases, made the hardest decisions already.”
“When you establish an IP, you now know what the tone is, you know what the character is, you know what the core mechanics are that work. You know what players liked and didn’t like,” Price continued, “so, doing a sequel for any game, be it Sunset Overdrive or something else, is an opportunity to deliver something to fans that’s significantly better than the original, and that’s something that I think we [at Insomniac] would love to do someday.”
“For us, it’s a timing challenge. It’s a bandwidth challenge,” Price said, “but, I do, to your point, feel like there are a lot of people out there who love Sunset, and we’ve certainly been asked, frequently, by fans.”
In the meantime, Insomniac Games is hard at work promoting new content for their latest release of Spiderman on the PS4 like the New Game Plus Mode and the DLC on the way. Seeing a sequel to such an interesting game as Sunset Overdrive would take a while but worth the wait.
