Sunset Overdrive 2 waiting for a publisher?!
« on: October 24, 2017, 07:39:31 PM »

The open-world setting took everyone by surprise as well. Additionally, this was the first time Insomniac Games was working with Microsoft on a project of this scale—which also happened to be an exclusive—so that added to the hype.

While the game failed to make a big dent commercially, it was still lauded by critics because it was a very unique experience, one that isn't usually found on Xbox One. Since then gamers have been asking Microsoft for a sequel, but it seems like the company hasn't responded to Insomniac Games. In a recent post by the studio on Twitter, it appears that the developer is without a publisher for Sunset Overdrive 2.

If Insomniac Games are looking for a publisher then hopefully Microsoft will step in and finance the project. However, Microsoft may not consider this to be feasible, as Redmond doesn't own rights to the Sunset Overdrive franchise. One of the reasons Insomniac Games went with Microsoft initially was that the company let the Insomniac keep the rights to the franchise.

Microsoft cannot let this series die.
