Sunset Overdrive will Expand from Players’ Feedback, Says Price
Insomniac Games’ next Xbox One exclusive, Sunset Overdrive, will grow and expand thanks to a two-way conversation between the players and Insomniac, president and CEO Ted Price said during a video Q&A broadcast on Twitch.tv today. Insomniac plans to provide the game with a stream of updates, which will evolve in part from those conversations, Price said, so that the players will be able to help improve the game as the game’s lifespan rolls on. Price said that the power of the next gen systems will allow them to do this.
“I think part of the excitement for us here is that, as we move into this next generation, we know that people are more and more connected with each other and want to have more communication with the folks who are making the game,” said Ted Price, president and CEO. “And when we look at the new tech coming down the road, it gives us that chance.
“On this generation, we’ve actually been practically restrained form making frequent updates to our games and having that conversation with our players simply because when you release content on a console, you actually have to jump through a lot of hoops to get it out there, and it’s very, very difficult — if not impossible — to respond immediately to what you see going on in the game.”
Sunset Overdrive doesn’t have a release date yet, but it will becoming exclusively to the Xbox One.
