Sunset Overdrive to remain Xbox One exclusive despite petition.
Today we’ve learned that Insomniac has no current plans to release the upcoming Sunset Overdrive on the PlayStation 4.
When he saw a petition for a PlayStation version of the upcoming game, Insomniac’s Salvitti told the creator of said petition in no uncertain terms that the game is and will be exclusive to Microsoft’s upcoming console. He added that, “Petitions will not change that. We have a partner in Microsoft, that we are happy with for this title. That doesn’t mean we can’t and won’t work with other publishers (see Into the Nexus).”
He continues to state, “I would not count on it being on the PS4. I will not say never because you never really know (heck Ratchet could end up on Xbox one day), but we are not planning on it being on the PS4, nor is it planned to be a timed exclusive. It is being developed and optimized for the Xbox One.”
This brought comments that perhaps they were indeed working on an Xbox One version of a Ratchet & Clank game, but Salvitti quickly corrected that by stating, “I was merely trying to illustrate that you can never say never with anything. It was a super general scenario that was used as an example of that. Please do not get my words twisted.”
Are you happy with Insomniac’s decision? Or would you have preferred if the petition had been successful?
