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. :)
