Insomniac Games working on a project titled Sunset Overdrive – rumor

According to a newly discovered patent, it appears that Insomniac Games is working on a new project named Sunset Overdrive.

This document classifies the title as “Computer game software” and provides identification as “[e]ntertainment services, namely, providing an on-line computer game.” The patent clearly belongs to Insomniac Games as well, as the patent lists the company and it’s attorney, Stephen Rubin, as part of the legal filing.

Additionally, a sleuth at NeoGaf discovered that a domain named “SUNSETOVERDRIVE.COM” has been registered to Ryan Schneider. Coincidentally, a Ryan Schneider works on staff at Insomniac as the Brand Development Director. Could this be Insomniac’s next generation IP?

More information as we get it.

Thanks, NeoGaf.
