Is Sunset Overdrive Coming To PS4/PS5? Sony Trademark Gives Fans Hope

This doesn't necessarily mean that Sony intends to put the game on its own hardware, though, and could be a case of the company covering itself against any lapses in trademark. Still, it's an exciting prospect.

The game originally launched in 2014, and was one of the few high-points of the Xbox One's early years.

An open-world adventure full of pop culture references and self-referential humour, the game came to Windows in 2018.

Wondering if it's any good? The game has an 81 Metacritic rating, and likely helped inform the developer's subsequent Spider-Man titles with its smooth locomotion and traversal mechanics.

If Sunset Overdrive arrives on PlayStation consoles, it's likely to find a substantial new audience.
