Is Quantic Dream's PS4 Project Code-Named "Singularity?"

Whatcha workin' on, Dave?

That's what a great many PlayStation fans want to ask of Quantic Dream boss David Cage. We all know the team is cranking away on the hotly anticipated PS3 exclusive, Beyond: Two Souls, but what about a mystery PS4 project...?

As spotted by Superannuation and summarized at Kotaku, it seems the Parisian developer might be hiding something. They registered the domain "singularityps4.com" in November, which matches with previous QD domain registrations; there was "heavyrainps3.com" and "beyondps3.com," so this would imply that a game entitled "Singularity" is in the works at Quantic Dream, and it's slated for Sony's next-generation console.

And of course, this also leads us to believe that Sony will indeed call that machine the PlayStation 4; there has been some question about that, as the code name "Orbis" is all we've had to go on. Lastly, let's not forget that Cage cited Ray Kurzweil's novel, "The Singularity is Near," as a major influence in the creation of that Kara tech demo that blew everyone away. But Activision owns the rights to "Singularity," thanks to the Raven Software-developed game that released back in 2010.

For the record, if you missed Singularity, you might want to try and find it. It's worthwhile. As for that Quantic Dream domain...well, discuss. :)

I recall some rumors about a sci fi title before we knew about Beyond so mayhaps this is it. I almost fear what QD could do with the power of the PS4.

I want a game based on that tech demo. Now, I know that Cage specifically denied that we'd get that. But perhaps that's part of the mystery? Perhaps 2014 will be the launch of another Quantic Dream game. (Could we be so lucky?!)

Ben: The game may not be called _Singularity_. I'm betting that, much like _Beyond: Two Souls_, the "Singularity" part is just the first word in a longer title. Maybe that's obvious, but it lends only more credibility to realising that Kara Tech Demo as a full game. They'd have my money first day for that!

Lol, looking at the old comments; you never change, Ben.
Anyway, you say based on the domain (ps4) that the next playstation will be called playstation 4. As much as I want this, is it possible that the domain could later be changed to go with whatever the next playstation will be called?

Oooh, you just gave me some actual hope with the whole "The Singularity is Near," influence that we might actually get a full game based on the Kara tech demo! Now that would be totally awesome!!
About that statement that Kara is not their new game, they could've simply been talking about the fact that the upcoming Beyond not being based on Kara.

I thought from the first moment I saw the Kara demo that it would make an excellent story for a game! In fact I never looked at it as a tech demo, because while the visuals were nice and all, that's not what made me interested in it, but the story & game potential of it!

Make Kara a AAA-PS4 title and I'll be a whole lot more likely to buy one sooner rather than later...

That Kara Tech Demo was emotional and amazing, I would love for it to be turned into a game. It would seriously be interesting. Much like Crabba said, it was more game potential then anything, I think it'll be upsetting if Quantic Dream don't realize the reaction Kara had.

Whatever Quantic Dream creates, I'll definitely rent/purchase it. Loved 'Heavy Rain' and 'Beyond: Two Souls' looks great.

Wow Consider me intrigued. With David Cage's vision and mindset about videogames, I'd purchase almost any new title from them. Every title has been a new ip and always has interesting with unforgettable stories. I really anxious to see what they'll do next gen
