Does that mean Stormland is still an Oculus exclusive ?

Possibly, Sony will probably honor any current agreements.

Okay, now Sony need to work with Remedy and Platinum.
If PS5 has SSO/Alan wake 2/quantum break 2(not actually sure who owns that IP) and Scalebound - or really any dragon riding based RPG - I will laugh.

Quantum Break is completely Microsoft's IP, Alan Wake was always Remedy's IP just MS had publishing rights much like Sunset Overdrive.

Actually, Sony was Insomniac's first choice to publish Sunset, but Sony turned it down. That is why Insomniac shopped the idea around to 3rd party publishers and MS, and MS ultimately chose to greenlight it.

If I remember correctly the problem was that Sony wanted ownership of the IP and Insomniac wanted to keep it themselves and then they struck a deal with MS so they could keep the IP and MS had publishing rights.

And now Sony got what they wanted, owning it.

Would be fun if MS allowed a Playstation-release of Sunset Overdrive. I don't think it is outside the realm of possibility

Nice. Hope they get more creative freedom and don’t turn into a Spider-Man/Ratchet studio.

Lmao, this is Sony we talking about. They dont buy studios ir builys studios and make them "the insert franchise name Here studio" like others.

OT: They got One of the best studios ever created, What a fucking catch, would not trade this One for the intire sum of all the studios Microsoft bought in the last three years. Spiderman IMO was the best game of last year, i loved it só Much that i plat that shit, my second platinum ever.

I mean Ori got a Switch port revealed today, hell it shows Xbox Game Studios as the publisher in its trailer.

So Microsoft will bring Sunset Overdrive to PS4 or PS5 is very possible.
