Sunset Overdrive 2 Not in Development – Report

Waypoint senior reporter says the sequel "isn't happening right now".

Rumours, as they usually do, run rampant around E3 season. One such rumour by Reddit user SoMeh pointed to Fallout 76 – with that exact name – being announced. The user then later said that at E3 2018, Microsoft would be announcing a “new Gears, Forza Horizon 4, Halo and Sunset Overdrive 2“.

Now, obviously there are plenty of reasons to be skeptical. A new Gears, Forza Horizon 4 and the next Halo aren’t tough predictions – even if one of them isn’t announced, we kind of know they’re in development. However, Sunset Overdrive 2 seems like an anomaly. Given the number of years since the first game launched and Insomniac’s work on Spider-Man, could it actually be happening.

It doesn’t seem to be the case according to Waypoint senior reporter Patrick Klepek (who’s also a former Giant Bomb news editor). Klepek said on Twitter that Sunset Overdrive 2 “isn’t happening right now”. “I poke around about this game all the time” said Klepek, noting it to be a favourite this generation, “And desperately asked for a sequel. It’s not in development.”

Obviously there’s a lot to take with a grain of salt from both sides. For now, we’d ask you to remain skeptical and take the announcements as they come. Microsoft’s E3 2018 presser is scheduled for June 10th.
