    In the time since Insomniac Games released Sunset Overdrive for the Xbox One in 2014, a lot of things have changed. Most notable of which being Sony's acquisition of the studio in 2019. While there's no official word on whether or not the game will ever receive a sequel, something Sunset Overdrive-related may be brewing over at Sony, as they've registered a trademark for the name, right at the tail-end of April 2021. While we wait to see what comes of this trademark, you can look forward to Insomniac's latest game, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, due out this June.

    I wouldn't mind a sequel, but will Insomniac pull away from Spiderman or Ratchet & Clank to make a new Sunset Overdrive game? I doubt it. Probably would be another Sony studio that would do it and might not be as good.

    this is one of the only games that made me want an xbone. I probably won't get it for playstation though. after my issues with the ps store, I don't want the same problem to happen to another account much later down the road.

    You've got a point, which is why I think this might indicate a port. Not necessarily any time soon as MS had the publishing rights, but those will probably revert back to Insomniac at some point. iirc it took nine years for Remedy to get them back for Alan Wake.

    I played the PC version a few years ago, and while it does get repetitive midway through, I enjoyed it.
    I think it has some missing potential with the railing momentum and it's arsenal, but the bizarre-ish comic-like visuals really make the gameplay experience look pretty rad.
    I believe it won't get a sequel. Probably a PS4/PS5 port.

    If this does end up on PS4 or PS5, I'm buying it. I've waited decades to play this game.

    I may be wrong but likely they will do nothing with it. It looks more a lawyer thing than a dev thing.

    If it comes to PS4 i'll maybe get it, this along with Halo, Forza and KI were why i would have liked to grab an Xbox One someday.

    I imagine that with acquisition of the studio, rights to all their IPs came along with it. Otherwise Microsoft would be disputing this trademark filing shortly.

    Getting a trademark for a name is not the same as gaining rights to a game that goes by that name. Sony knows that. They haven't stole anything.

    Insomniac should just make Ratchet & Clank: Rebolted or Retooled or whatever. A quadrilogy.

    This game came out on PC in 2018, there hasn't been a good reason to own an Xbox One for a long time. :P

    Generally the minimum they will do is a port, otherwise there is no point.

    How is that relevant? Sony isn't claiming they made Sunset Overdrive, they just bought the developer who did (Insomniac). They probably had to wait for the previous trademark to expire before filing for this one, which will allow a sequel or remaster to be made.
