Even though Major Nelson’s only mentioned Windows 10, the game will also be available on Steam for users still on Windows 7 and 8, and a physical disc version was spotted on Amazon earlier this week, and the game will apparently priced at $19.99. The game has yet to appear on the Microsoft Store and Steam as of this writing, but it could just be a matter of hours.
Now that Sunset Overdrive is finally coming to Windows, it's clear that Xbox exclusives are becoming a thing of the past. These days, pretty much all new Xbox One games are also available on Windows, and even Microsoft's Halo series will make the jump to Windows 10 starting with the upcoming Halo Infinite. Considering that Windows is one of the biggest gaming platforms out there, console exclusivity can really be a missed opportunity for game developers.
