Quantic Dream are looking to give fans a peek behind the curtain of Detroit: Become Human in a new video series focusing on the studio’s approach to interactive storytelling.
Since releasing Fahrenheit in 2005 (also known as Indigo Prophecy) the French developer has been best known for attempting to bridge the gap between video games and the silver screen.
We saw this in 2010’s Heavy Rain which was followed by Beyond: Two Souls (starring Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe) and then Quantic Dream’s most recent hit, Detroit: Become Human.
Despite being hamfisted in its approach to certain themes and subtexts, Detroit: Become Human was a huge hit and continues to boast quite a fan following.
Last summer, the studio’s trio of previous releases dropped their PlayStation platform exclusivity. Heavy Rain, Beyond, and Detroit are all currently available to purchase and play on PC though only via the Epic Games Store.
Earlier this year Quantic Dream announced that they would be going fully independent, publishing their own upcoming games. Here’s how they describe the transition:
This new venture will allow us to make decisions in total independence, and to address the technological and strategic opportunities of next-generation platforms. It will also allow us to help other developers, by providing investment and development support, so that they can fully express their talents. We want to support creators of original projects and help them, in turn, to achieve their vision and offer quality, ground-breaking experiences.
Although Quantic Dream surely have one or more projects currently in the pipeline, there’s been no indication as to what the developer is planning to reveal. Naturally, there’s speculation that the team will be targeting the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, no doubt looking to evolve their unique brand of storytelling by leaning on new hardware.
