Cage "Disappointed" With Heavy Rain DLC Cancellation
Heavy Rain: Move Edition certainly looks appealing, and is one game that could really benefit from Sony's new motion technology simply based on the interactive structure.
Unfortunately, the development of this upgraded title has meant the indefinite delay - and now, apparent cancellation - of the intended downloadable content for the story. Originally, we were supposed to get four separate DLC episodes for each of the main characters; we got "The Taxidermist" for Madison but that's where it ended. Quantic Dream boss David Cage tells NowGamer that while he expects fans would've "really enjoyed" those episodes, Sony really wanted to push the concept of Move:
"Unfortunately, Sony preferred to ask us to focus on Move to support the device rather than on creating new content. On our side, we did not want to spend more time on HR, which would have meant delaying new projects. This is a decision I can understand, and I am certainly happy we had the opportunity to play with this device and to support it, although I am certainly disappointed for fans we could not finish the story of HR the way we intended."
This new project the team is working on should be Horizon, which may or may not see an unveiling of some sort later this year (perhaps we need to wait until E3 2011). But yes, for fans of Heavy Rain, the cancellation of the intended DLC is definitely disappointing. And I just have one question about the Move Edition: what exactly will we be doing with our hands during Madison's dance scene in the club...?
