If insomniac owns the rights to sunset drive

#1InterzoneMantraPosted 5/11/2014 1:44:25 PM
Does that mean that they can just release it on other systems like the pc, ps4 etcc later on? Or will it be just exclusive to ms since they're are ones publishing ?

Future games, yes. Unlikely that this first one will be ported over to anything else. But Insomniac could pull a Mass Effect

We have no Idea what their deal with MS is more than likely it will be a lifetime exclusive to X1 since they published it unless Insomniac asked for the contract to have a time limit , but MS could choose to release it on PC if they wanted to or other consoles if say Sony paid them a good deal of money.

If you really cared about about your FPS and resolution you wouldn't buy a PS4 or an XBOX get a mother F***ing PC.

Here's how this works:

Insomniac owns the rights to the IP and can do what they want with future installments.

Microsoft owns the PUBLISHING rights to Sunset Overdrive 1, they're the ones who's funding its development. Before it can go anywhere else, they need Microsoft's permission first. It sure as hell won't go to PS4.

Whether the sequels are on PS4 depends on if Insomniac can find a different publisher, we'll just have to see about that.

The game is in the exact same situation as Mass Effect. As are the rest of MS exclusives except Halo,Gears, Forza, Fable and some kinect stuff no one cares about.
If any of them are a success the developers won't have a problem finding a publisher for the sequels, and if they flop there won't be a sequel.

MS was likely planning what they did last gen where they paid for some exclusives early on to get people to buy the 360 and once enough units were sold that the system would have a healthy lifetime they stopped spending the money.

depending on SO's success they could/have a partnership to only release future titles on x1 only, sort of like what they had with EPIC games for gears of war...y'know before they like said wtf and just bought the rights to it entirely.

What about ninja gaiden 2? as i recall that was published by ms, but team ninja released it on the ps3 later on. I'm guessing if sunset overdrive does well enough, i won't be surprise if ms tries to keep it exclusive.

Itagaki preferred Xbox.

Hayashi did the Sigma games and took over NG/DOA after Itagaki left. It was a way to get the NG games on PS3.
