Forums - Microsoft Discussion - MS to do the "Halo, Gears, Forza" formula again?

With Spider-Man almost done, it is probably time for insomniac to announce what is next in the pipeline. So sunset overdrive 2 isn’t really a stretch. The problem is that the first sunset overdrive wasn’t very successful. I don’t think insomniac is going to go down that road again...

I think it’s been strongly suggested that Insomniac will continue making the Spider-Man games after the first. That could change if their first attempt is poor, but I think that’s pretty doubtful.

Halo should always be on the table as its their Mario franchise. It and Xbox are synonymous and should remain that way for as long as Xbox is a thing.

Well, that doesn’t really mean anything... insomniac can have multiple teams working on different projects.  However, I do find it unlikely that they are working on a new sunset overdrive because the first one did so bad... but I could see a new ip... or another ratchet game or something...



lol You act as if these franchises are being milked to death, we've only had one mainline game from Gears and Halo on xbox one

If the quality is there, I'm all for it. 343i really needs to deliver with the next Halo game.

And given the recent Studios, we can at the very least add Fable and whatever MS Santa Monica is going to be working on. Seems like MS is really interested in bringing back IPs given the Perfect Dark and Banjo rumors.
