Sony takes Microsoft's excellent Xbox One exclusive from Marvel’s Spider-Man

Back in August 2019, Sony announced the purchase of Insomniac Games, the authors of Spider-Man (2018), Ratchet & Clank and Resistance. Rights

the studio automatically switched to the Japanese games, but the fate of Sunset Overdrive, Microsoft's exclusive, remained unknown.

What is known

In an interview for Inside Games (via Push Square)Sony Interactive Entertainment president Shuhei Yoshida announced that sunset overdrive rights had been transferred along with the rest of the property. In 2013, the project was released on the Xbox One, then migrated to the PC, and now completely lost its Microsoft exclusive status. Sunset Overdrive has become one of the best Xbox One exclusives, so it’s not surprising that Sony decided to take it to itself.

It is unlikely that the company will leave the project gathering dust on a shelfwith the rest of the intellectual property, so gamers should wait for the release on the PlayStation 4. In addition, interest in the project may mean that Sony is planning a sequel to Sunset Overdrive. Insomniac has already proven to SIE that they can release great exclusives and improve an already good game for the studio will not be a problem.
