Over the past few weeks, we've been seeing some interesting evidence pointing at a PC release of Insomniac Games' wild third-person action/adventure Sunset Overdrive coming to PC, including a recent listing on Steamdb. But now Amazon has all but made it official, with a pre-order page opening up, indicating that the port is set to arrive in just a few days.
According to said listing, the game will make its debut for PC on November 16 -- this Friday. It's set at a price of $19.99; and it looks like the game will include all of its respective DLC in the package.
The game appears to be under the publishing wing of THQ Nordic, who reached a deal with Microsoft earlier in the year to bring a variety of its Xbox One games to PC, including ReCore: Definitive Edition and Super Lucky's Tale. So it looks like Sunset Overdrive is part of that package, even though it still hasn't said anything about the game's release. That said, we're likely to learn something very soon.
Here are some features listed for Sunset Overdrive on its product page:

The game became a cult classic upon its original release on Xbox One back in 2014, though not the best-seller that Microsoft was hoping it would be. Still, it helped solidify Insomniac Games' reputation as a powerhouse developer, which would later lead to it teaming up with Sony to produce the best-selling Marvel's Spider-Man for PlayStation 4.
It's a busy time for Insomniac at the moment. Along with its forthcoming Turf Wars DLC for Spider-Man (which will reportedly arrive next week), it's also created the Spyro the Dragon games, which are being given the remaster treatment with tomorrow's Spyro Reignited Trilogy, produced by Toys For Bob and published by Activision. Sunset Overdrive would obviously be the icing on this already loaded cake.
