Whatever Happened To The Dark Sorcerer?
During the running of the PlayStation 4 hype train prior to launch, several titles were on the lips of many fans.
Capcom's Deep Down showed off some amazingly impressive visuals but the game has significantly changed since its initial unveiling. As for The Last Guardian, I guess it'll eventually come to PS4 but I'm really not holding my breath.
What I was most interested in at the time was Quantic Dream's mysterious project, code-named "The Dark Sorcerer." It was on display during Sony's E3 2013 presentation but since then, we really haven't heard much about it. The last update I heard was that it would be "very, very different" from what the team had done before, so perhaps nothing like Heavy Rain or Beyond: Two Souls. And yes, I'm aware that the tech demo wasn't necessarily the game we'll eventually get. I just wish we'd hear something about it; this total lack of information always bugs me.
And it's not because I'm impatient. It's simply because extended periods of nothing often hint at development trouble of some kind. The aforementioned Guardian is a perfect example of that. I'm hoping Quantic Dream is at E3 this year and is able to give us some news. Two years after the initial presentation, I'd like to think this is more than plausible.
