Cage: There Is Nothing On The Horizon
When you make a masterpiece like Heavy Rain, the entire gaming world waits anxiously for news of your next project.
And for a while now, we all thought Quantic Dream's next game was dubbed "Horizon," a name that has been floating about for most of 2010. However, there's something you should know...it isn't real. In speaking to the Official PlayStation Magazine UK and as noted by GamerZines, studio boss David Cage has clarified- "There's no project called Horizon currently in development at Quantic Dream." Well, damn. As it turns out, it was something else entirely:
"This is a codename that one of our partners used in casting sessions along with an unrelated script to avoid leaks from actors. It seems it was definitely a wise decision."
That's true. Actors are indeed prone to leaking things about unannounced projects, and the developer's proactive prevention plan seems to have worked. Therefore, rumors about "Horizon," which supposedly included the story of "a curious man very insularly meeting a free woman who is hesitant to exercise her freedom," are incorrect. Well, perhaps there's something to the story idea but the game itself certainly isn't called "Horizon."
Well, great, now what do we do? We have to look forward to something from these guys. Can't we just have a little hint...?
