David Cage wrote the entirety of Beyond: Two Souls‘ 2000 page script himself, apparently. That’s quite a lot of writing for one man, even if he is a prolific genius (and that’s a debate for another time…).
Well in an interview picked up by Dtoid, Guillaume de Fondaumière (co-CEO of Quantic Dream) has said that the studio is already hiring some top Hollywood talent to help write Quantic Dream’s next, unannounced, game that’s expected for the PlayStation 4.
The developer is bringing on directors and screenswriters to work with Cage and help him bring some of his grand ideas to fruition.
David has so many ideas that Quantic Dream doesn’t have enough resources to put all of these ideas into games, he has grand ideas and concepts. Our job is to turn these ideas into projects. So we are trying to attract talent.
Apparently, there is a team of three working on the PS4 game, including Cage who will retain final say in all matters. Quantic Dream has no interest in adapting someone else’s work into a videogame.
