Sunset Overdrive Exclusive to Xbox One Due to Feature Set and Xbox Live
CEO and Founder Ted Price is “extremely happy with support and commitment” received thus far.
The question has been asked till death but Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price talked one more time to Game Revolution about why Sunset Overdrive, releasing this October, will be available exclusively on the Xbox One.
“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.”
Sunset Overdrive releases on October 28th in North America and October 31st in Europe.
