The Sunset Overdrive IP is owned by Insomniac Games, who are now part of the Sony first-party family of studios. Therefore, it is now possible that Sunset Overdrive could come to PlayStation formats, although nothing has been announced yet. Sunset Overdrive’s Director, Drew Murray, also rejoined Insomniac Games earlier this year.
Sunset Overdrive was originally released for the Xbox One in October 2014 and later turned up on PC four years later.
Nothing has been confirmed about any plans for Sunset Overdrive for the PS4/PS5 at this point, and back in 2019, former Sony boss Shawn Layden indicated that the company wasn’t all that fussed about the series making its way to PlayStation platforms.
As for Insomniac Games, they’re currently busy putting the finishing touches on Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart for the PS5, which is out in June.
