Insomniac Has No Plans To Bring Sunset Overdrive to PC

For now.

Sunset Overdrive

Insomniac Games’ Sunset Overdrive looks like one of the best games coming to the Xbox One, and it also looks like a return to form for the premier studio, whose output has faltered a bit in recent years. The colorful, sunny game, which promises a deft mix of platforming and action, quite like Ratchet and Clank, looks so good, in fact, that even people who don’t have any plans to buy an Xbox One any time soon want to play it. And thus, they are hoping that, like with many Xbox One exclusives, such as Ryse: Son of Rome or Dead Rising 3, it will also eventually come to PC.

Insomniac addressed this question head on in a recent statement.

“I don’t know what the future holds,” Insomniac’s James Stevenson said to Videogamer. “Right now there’s no plans for a PC version of the game. We’re just working hard to finish up the Xbox One version. We’re going to support it post-launch and then we’ll see what happens in the future. But there’s no plans. We aren’t planning a PC version or anything like that.”

On one hand, of course they will say that, to not compromise the sales of the Xbox One version from anybody who might then potentially sit out the release to pick it up on the PC; on the other hand, Insomniac has never been much of a multiplatform game developer, and they might actually be telling the truth.

There’s really no way of telling for sure with Xbox One exclusives, but for now let’s stick with this- as of right now, the only way to play Sunset Overdrive is on the Xbox One.

    Here’s my opinion on this whole “exclusive” issue. My, opinion. I’ve never been the gamer who puts faith in a great looking upcoming game, to hopefully get released on my Xbox a year after its debut elsewhere. If a console has that one great “exclusive” I want, I’m buyin it, even if I have to save up for the system before the game drops.

    I’ve never felt entitled for games, or that Microsoft, Sony or Ninty owes me anything. If I bought it, then something substantial motivated me to get it…….even with the GAURANTEED consequence of missing out on potentially great games elsewhere. This has been what I’ve seen as normal since my NES days. But that was 1988 lol.

    The best I can understand anyone who thinks things should be otherwise, or that there should only be a handful of exclusives per system, is that there’s alot of younger gamers who may not have the money to buy 2 consoles. I usually had 2. But I did work for them. Still, I think gamers who r strapped for cash are using their voice online, because social networking’s power, is in the hands of the millions of users. If enough people push, change can happen.

    I disagree with port begging, but I understand it a little bit. Now, for anyone with enough cash to buy an Xbox, and is up on port begging, because they hate Microsoft, it’s best for them to let it go, buy the system, and feel the liberty of having CHOICE. Have mad fun with ur hobby and support these game studios man.
