Insomniac's Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive confirmed for 2014

Ratchet & Clank developer Insomniac's next big IP is slated for a 2014.

by

A post in celebration of Xbox One's worldwide launch on Xbox.com indicates that Ratchet & Clank and Resistance developer Insomniac is set to release Sunset Overdrive in 2014.

The announcement was made with little fanfare, with Microsoft simply stating that we should "Expect more huge launches as well, with the release of next-generation experiences, such as 'Titanfall,' 'Project Spark' and 'Sunset Overdrive' in 2014."

Insomniac's next big intellectual property, Sunset Overdrive, is a cartoonish, open-world shooter. A trailer for the game was first shown during Microsoft's press conference at the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo, displaying a character running through an animated world and making use of various weapons.

Sunset Overdrive will be exclusive to the Xbox One. This is dramatic shift for developer Insomniac, which in the previous generation was known mostly for its Sony PlayStation exclusives, Resistance and Ratchet & Clank.

It actually seems pretty cool, too bad i won't have enough cash for an xbox one, hopefully it succeeds and becomes multiplat one day

Article title should have been: "Former-PlayStation Exclusive Studio's Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive confirmed for 2014", with a Troll face as the thumbnail.

Brink, anyone?

Starting to think Fuse was scaled back so it wouldn't clash with this game...

Thats too bad its X1 exclusive. But I wouldn't put too much faith in Insomniac after their last few releases. FUSE bombed, and Resistance 3 was weak. Hopefully, they can bounce back.

I thought they were owned by Sony due to all of the exclusives. Insomniac is making a big mistake by signing an exclusivity contract with the Devil.

I really dig the style and it's vibe. Hopefully, they provide more info or looks at the game. It's been locked up and hidden ever since Insomniac announced it.

I'm not getting an Xbox just to play this game.  Sorry Insomniac, nothing personal.  I love the Xbox, but just not getting one because the PS4 is better.  Again, nothing personal...

anyone else think this game will have microtransactions? Microsoft is pretty much ass molesting x1 owners with their first party releases and microtransactions, so I don't think this will be different........

for those who don't believe......just remember I called it

I think with any Insomniac game nowadays, it's a case of wait and see. Unfortunately, most of their games tend to be disappointments compared to their work a decade ago.

Game doesn't look very promising at all. Felt like I was watching Cloudy with a chance of meatballs or something like it.

I'm not interested in this game. Mainly just because of the fact they haven't said much about the game at all and it looks like a lame Dreamworks flick.

This game looks interesting. Im not making a judgment on this game for several reason:
1: That is a Teaser Trailer.... not actual gameplay
2: It really has only been talked about 1 time, and that was back at E3.
3: This is a company iv never had the chance to play their games a lot. I played Resistance, and it was a fun game in my opinion.
4: Its way to early  to judge a game when no real details are being show just yet.
5: There is nothing to compliment nor anything to complain about when you have no solid info about the game.

I'm going to keep following this game. It looks very interesting, but that can change over time. Time will tell :)

What an ugly game. Only Uncharted, Infamous, Little Big Planet, Syphon Filter, Killzone, Sly Cooper, Ratchet, Socom, Warhawk, Soul Sacrifice,  Beyond 2 Souls, Alundra, Dead Nation, Demon Souls, Grand Turismo, and so many other games. Will pee on this garbage Xbox and this garbage game.

@ChiefFreeman Resistance was great. Ratch & Clank was great until it got to the PS3. Never played Fuse and probably never will.

@Mr_Big_Boss not owned, just one of the developers that preferred to work exclusively with the family of consoles, til now

@megakick looks like Jet Set Radio, Mirrors Edge & Resistance had an orgy and this is what popped out 9 months later.

Because Sony has no micro transactions?

@callsignalphai believe Sony gave them up first, although I really love Resistance series and hope to see a sequel which is probably never gonna happen

@Syphon_Filter2 With a pathetic comment like that i hope your 12 years old?Of course coming from a sony fanboy i do expect alot of of childish actions

@Syphon_Filter2 Yet this is made by a former Sony Developer..KillZone?  Really?  Resistance was at least a much better game than your Halo wannabe garbage

@Sevenizz yeah they are free 2 play titles, got me on that one, so far its just gran turismo 6, so I hope, that it is not as bad as forza 5, even the token to cash ratio for forza 5 is nuts, but if there are other first party titles sony has that have microtransactions point em out bro-seph
