Quantic Dream are going multi-platform

 

Sony have just lost one of their USPs as Quantic Dream have announced future titles will be multi platform. The reveal coincides with the news that Chinese company NetEase purchased a minority stake in the company.

“This investment will allow us to invest in future technologies and games in order to prepare for the next generation of platforms, with the same ambition regarding creativity and innovation,” explained David Cage. “Our goal is to develop our studio as a global, multi-franchise company, while remaining an independent studio. We want to keep developing original games in the genre we pioneered, but also expand our audience by being present on all platforms.”

Quite why Sony have never snapped up the company is somewhat of a mystery, whilst they may not be to everyone’s taste games like Detroit and Heavy Rain made PlayStation line up more varied than that of it’s competitors. Presumably this announcement is the “great news” David Cage teased just before Christmas.

  1. Every platform deserves to play Detroit. Underrated gem of last year!

  2. We will still get their games on the PS platform and up to press they haven’t put a foot wrong. So its still all good.

    I still hope they remaster Fahrenheit for the PS4. Pro it up, pleaaaasseeeee!!!

  3. Yep, one of my favourites for sure. not sure if happy with this news though as like the features they always built in to take advantage of the PS controller.

  4. I have always been under the impression that Sony owns the IPs from Quantic Dream – is their info about this?

    • No, Quantic Dream own them, Sony published them. You won’t see Heavy Rain or Detroit on Xbox, but whatever’s next you will.
