Sony has just made an interesting legal gesture …
Originally released for Xbox One in 2014, Overdrive at sunset quickly became a gaming sensation. Playing something like Grand Theft Auto meets Crazy Taxi meets Splatoon, the game boasted fantastic, highly kinetic open-world action-shooter gameplay and a wild and addicting sense of humor. The game quickly became a cult classic, securing a PC port in 2018. But in all of this, gamers of any Sony console, from the PlayStation 4 to the new PlayStation 5, haven’t been able to will pass Overdrive at sunset.
Not even when game developer Insomniac Games (the Spider Man games) was purchased by Sony in 2019; Shawn Layden, president of Sony Interactive Worldwide Studios said at the time that Overdrive at sunset “was a great experience for Insomniac” but “as far as the IP itself, we really haven’t flipped the files over that one to see what that actually means, to be honest. We love this. that they did in the Spider Man franchise, and things like Ratchet and Clank are certainly vital series in the present and the future. This is what we are focusing on. ”
But now Sony may have taken the first step towards setting up Overdrive at sunset – or a sequel – in the PlayStation family. We are still speculating, but, for example, what else would you do with intellectual property after filing a patent for it?
That’s right, Overdrive at sunset/ PlayStation fans: Sony filed a trademark for the game with the US Patent and Trademark Office on April 26, 2021. It could just mean that the company is interested in doing something PlayStation-centric with the title soon, although nothing will be done. official beyond this law the filing was announced.
I hope and think something like “a remastered version of the original with all the DLC” would be an easy explosion of income and goodwill for Sony and Insomniac; they might even go for the free market on PlayStation Plus like other recent games with similar tones and / or cult status like AllStars Destruction or Control. Additionally, they could check the temperature to find out if the PS market has an appetite for Sunset control, and that could pave the way for a sequel or universe expansion (not to mention expanding Insomniac’s public appeal beyond Spider Man and Ratchet and Clank).
We’ll keep you posted once we’ve heard something official, but for now, somehow or another, we’re very excited about what a “trademark legal deposit” is. could mean for the future of a cool and cool video game.
