Insomniac Creative Director Marcus Smith says that one of the themes most suggested to him by fans is something inspired by Doctor Who. "People want to see that Tardis spinning in," he told me at an event showcasing Microsoft's upcoming lineup. Smith wouldn't give away any final respawn animation secrets.
Sunset Overdrive (May 2014)
One animation, inspired by Back to the Future, would see the game's protagonist return by way of post-time travel DeLorean. Unfortunately, licensing issues related to the classic 80s vehicle forced the team to abandon the idea.
Sunset Overdrive launches on exclusively for the Xbox One on October 28.
