NeoGAF user Lucifon spotted the ad earlier today online, but as some other users guessed, Microsoft didn't actually mean to say the game is coming to PC. "On the Sunset Xbox/PC ad: Not true, this was a simple mistake and the team is aware/addressing," said Mike Ybarra, who works on the Xbox Platform and Windows Gaming Development Team. "Sorry for any confusion!"
In September, Sunset Overdrive developer Insomniac Games said it has no plans to bring its over-the-top Xbox One action game to PC, but has not ruled out a release for computers sometime down the road.
"I don't know what the future holds," Insomniac Games marketing lead James Stevenson said at the time. "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."
Sunset Overdrive launches October 28. You can buy the game that day by itself or through a $399 Xbox One hardware bundle that includes a white system, matching white controller, and a copy of the game.
