Amazon may have leaked the PC release date for Sunset Overdrive. The Amazon page (it has since been taken down, but you can view the archived page here) lists the release date as November 16, 2018, and the game's price at $19 99, which is a match for the Windows Store listing. The game also appeared on SteamDB earlier this month.

Insomniac's colorful open world action game has been exclusive to the Xbox One since its launch alongside the console in 2013. A PC release date has been rumored for some time but never confirmed.

 

A PC release would fit with Microsoft's plans to bring their first-party titles to the platform, which they've been very vocal about for some time now. It's surprising that we didn't get an announcement at XO18 earlier this month. Microsoft explored their Game Pass line-up and future plans for the console, but Sunset Overdrive was nowhere to be seen.

Although Microsoft has been quiet about the future of the franchise, Insomniac Games has been a bit more vocal.

 
 

"You'd have to ask Microsoft,” Insomniac President Ted Price told Game Informer in 2017. "We are passionate about that franchise, and we own it, so you may see more Sunset in the future from us. No promises and no timeline to speak of, but it is something that represents our willingness to create unexpected experiences."

Hopefully, that means we'll see more Sunset Overdrive at some point in the future, but with Insomniac still hard at work on post-release support for Spider-Man, it probably won't be coming any time soon.
