Xbox’s Phil Spencer Talks Rise of the Tomb Raider, Possibility of Sunset Overdrive Sequel and More

Microsoft’s Xbox Division head honcho Phil Spencer is always quite open to conversations with the fans on social media, and today he went on one of his usual Twitter sprees, talking about quite a few interesting topics.

Sunset Overdrive was so fun, unlike any game I've seen in a while. Felt kinda fresh to see something unique. Hope it sold well, it deserved to, would love to have a sequel, maybe multi-platform this time so our PS brethren could share the love too.

LifeInNZ3195d ago

They should make it one of their games for gold this xmas, I'm sure it would be extremely popular and drive a thirst for a sequel.

Mr Pumblechook3195d ago

Sunset Overdrive received a positive critical reception but sales wise it underperformed. The reality is that businesses have to make a profit, if there is a sequel then Insomniac will follow the Titanfall example and make it multi-format so it is available to as many gamers as possible.

Kribwalker3195d ago

@pumblecock

I'd like to see your insider information as to how well sunset overdrive did and how it underperformed, because I remember that they sold out of sunset overdrive limited edition bundles as well ,the October 2014 npd had it at the 9th best selling game that month if you sorted by skus it stated and released on October 28

If its multiplatform Microsoft won't be funding it consider that.

@Pumblechook. Microsoft funded and marketed SSOD even if it sold 1 copy insomniac didn't lose anything also they would have to go elsewhere for funding if they went multipkat which I doubt since they have a solid partner in MS.

You don't know the sales aims for SSOD therefore you can't say it underperformed.

Mr Pumblechook3195d ago (Edited 3195d ago )

@Waluigi. Before Microsoft would fund a Sunset Overdrive 2, they would have to consider the benefit to their platform for example would it drive new console sales? If they think it was a big draw then they would pay for it, if they don't think it would they wouldn't! Microsoft paid BIG for Titanfall but it didn't move Xbox One units the way a Gears of War game can so they won't be going exclusive with the sequel.

Insomniac are a mid sized but established studio. If they don't have the resources to fund SO2 they could certainly do so from investment partners.

I do get you point about not knowing what the SO sales aims were. But they were hoping for very good things. It was a well funded game with significant advertising budget ( I heard Ted Price talk about it in person at a UK event). Less then 890,000 games sales (including bundles and discounted copies) was absolutely a disappointment. It doesn't mean the game was a technical failure, it just felt to resonate with the wider public.

ScorpiusX3195d ago

No on the whole brethren BS ,their platform share's no game so no game should be shared with them . Am all for an Exclusive Sequel to SSoD .

LexHazard793195d ago

I would like it to stay exclusive. PS4 has plenty of exclusives already.

jb2273194d ago

I never understand that philosophy...wouldn't that amount solely to wanting bragging rights? I honestly think gamers should want for exclusive first party studios, not exclusive titles from 3rd party developers. If MS would've spent all of the funds from this gen alone that were funneled towards 3rd party exclusives & timed exclusives they could've most likely started a pretty phenomenal first party studio that could be cranking out the greatest game in Xbox history. Instead these 3rd party deals typically turn out half steps & games that are known commodities, they'll be good fun but they won't be mindblowing because they still aren't fully catering to the system's strengths.

StormLegend3195d ago

Why the downvotes?

He said "Multi-platform" and even if he didn't

he still shouldn't get downvoted.

Professor_K3194d ago

Agreed with everything you said

The game needs its own franchise

DarkZane3195d ago

Insomniac didn't release it on PS4 because Sony wanted to own the IP, so they went to Microsoft instead. However, now that the first game is released, Sony can't own the IP anymore, so if they want, they're free to release the sequel on PS4 or even port the first one too.

RiseofScorpio3195d ago

So can Capcom release SFV on Xbox One because the own the IP? No. Because there's clauses in the contract just like with SSOD, they cant release SSOD because MS funded it.

_-EDMIX-_3195d ago

Yes, they very much can and likely will after their timed deal with Sony.

Sony doesn't own the SF IP.

I'm sorry but the contract won't some how override the whole IP LMFAO! It just makes zero sense. That is like saying I can pay to exclusively use your car for life, but not actually spend the money that equals your car...it makes no sense.

Sony can't pay Capcom a lessor amount then the IP, to withhold the IP from a system.

I mean...the deal is literally stupid and laughable. That is very, very unlikely that the deal states that.

its likely for a year for Street Fighter V vanilla ie before Super, before Ultra, before Alpha, before Hyper etc lol

MS also funded Ninja Gaiden II and Tomb Raider...

soooooo not sure what you mean bud, that really doesn't mean much. 100% sure Insomniac owns that IP, not MS.

RiseofScorpio3195d ago

Microsoft didn't fund Tomb Raider, they're marketing and publishing only. -ESSAYMIX-

I love the interactivity Phil has with consumers.

DJustinUNCHAIND3195d ago

5 people don't love the interactions between Spencer and the consumers.

OpieWinston3195d ago

You got disagrees for that? Who doesn't want more heads to be down to the ground with the fans of their products? Especially in gaming.

It's good he says what's not in development so the fanbase can then get some buzz going to hopefully push higher ups to decide to greenlight it. Nothings guaranteed but it can spark some light.

from the beach3195d ago

That's not as decisive on a Sunset Overdrive sequel as I'd like ... sign it up, Phil!
