It appears to be like like Sony has registered a trademark for the beforehand Xbox-exclusive shooter Sundown Overdrive.
Noticed by Nibel on Twitter, the trademark was registered on the US Patent and Trademark Workplace in late April. It would not affirm something, however it’s attention-grabbing provided that Sundown Overdrive was initially unique to Xbox One upon its launch in 2014. The sport then came to PC in 2018 earlier than Sony acquired Insomniac as a first-party PlayStation studio in 2019.

This implies Sony can lay declare to the sport and are clearly involved in sustaining its patent, however whether or not they intend to really do something with the property is anybody’s guess. Curiously sufficient, Sundown Overdrive Director Drew Murray just lately rejoined Insomniac Games after a stint at Microsoft’s ‘AAAA’ Perfect Dark studio The Initiative.
