We’re trying to patch this up from various pieces of info uncovered on superannuation’s Twitter feed. It seems like pretty compelling evidence, although as usual, we advise that you take all that you read below with a liberal serving of sodium chloride.
Quantic Dream has registered a couple of domain names with EU extensions. One of them is playseries(.co.uk, .de and .fr) which is a little too ambiguous for us to postulate over too much. The other, though, is fiv5.co.uk (and other EU extensions), which, as the domain sleuth points out, would make sense as Quantic Dream’s next game would be their fifth.
Further clues are presented via this LinkedIn job description which lists “Five” alongside Infraworld, which was the working title of Quantic’s first (and thought to be abandoned) game for the current generation of consoles.
As this GAF post points out, it was very soon after Heavy Rain’s release that David Cage claimed their next project was already mostly written and was very different to Heavy Rain. Could this be the resurrection of Infraworld, a game which was canned in 2006? Again, via GAF, Cage has announced that he’s working on two very different projects – Infraworld and fiv5? Possibly.
It’s also just come to light via that very handy GAF post, that SCE seem to have the fiv5 name trademarked which would imply exclusive status. So something is afoot here, exactly how much is yet to be determined but thanks to a couple of incredibly attentive observers, we seem to have some solid clues about Quantic Dream’s future projects.
