Sunset Overdrive for PC May Be on the Horizon According to New ESRB Rating

The long awaited PC port of Insomniac Games' Sunset Overdrive may finally be on the horizon if a recent ESRB rating is to be believed.

November 1, 2018

While a majority of Microsoft-published Xbox One games are also on PC, Insomniac Games’ Sunset Overdrive is one of the few titles that never made the jump despite fan requests. That being said, it seems like the wacky open-world third person shooter may finally be making it way to PC. As spotted by Gematsu earlier today, Sunset Overdrive has been rated for PC by the ESRB. 

Just like on Xbox One, Sunset Overdrive is rated M for Mature, but that isn’t the important thing about this rating. While ratings leaks from places like Taiwan and Korea are sometimes doubted, an ESRB rating basically guarantees that Sunset Overdrive is releasing for PC in some way, shape, or form fairly soon. That being said, a PC version of the game was rated by the Korean Game Ratings Board back in May, which gives more validity to an impending release.

Personally, I’ve been interested in Sunset Overdrive since its initial reveal, but have never able to play it because I don’t own an Xbox One. I have wanted Insomniac Games and Microsoft to bring the game to PC for years, so I’ll definitely be picking Sunset Overdrive up when it comes to PC, even if it’s limited to to Microsoft Windows Store. It will also be interesting to see how much it influence Marvel’s Spider-Man, the latest title from Insomniac Games that I loved.

For now, we do not know when Microsoft will unveil Sunset Overdrive’s PC port; that being said, DualShockers will be sure to let you know when they do make an official announcement. Microsoft is holding XO18 in Mexico City in a couple of weeks, and that would be a fitting time and place for an announcement. Microsoft also recently revealed their plans to expand Xbox Game Pass to PC in the future. Considering Sunset Overdrive is already part of the service, I wouldn’t be surprised if ended up being available through it on PC.

If you just pick up the game for Xbox One right now, you can do so on Amazon. If you’d rather have access to a ton of other titles as well as Sunset Overdrive, you can pick up a 6-month Xbox Game Pass subscription instead.
