Quantic Dream's Mystery PS4 Title Will Be "Very, Very Different"
If there's one next-gen project that excites me more than any other revealed so far, it might be Quantic Dream's mystery PlayStation 4 title.
The developer showed off a PS4 stage demo this past February when Sony's new console was revealed. It was entitled "The Dark Sorcerer" and essentially displayed the capability and potential of the system. There was also that fantastic "Kara" tech demo the team created last year.
But what is their new game, exactly? Well, Quantic Dream boss David Cage told Game Informer that in fact, it'll be "very, very different" as compared to Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls. Cage said they're "building on the same grounds but in a very, very different way." The bottom line is that if you think you know what to expect, think again:
"People should expect to be surprised again because this is really what we try to do with each game: not give people what they expect, give them something they want maybe without knowing this is what they want."
Currently, the untitled PS4 project is in the pre-production phase, primarily because Beyond has required all the time and resources the studio had to offer. Cage has also said in the past that this game will feature "one of the strongest concepts" he has ever devised. Yeah, it's safe to say that this guy has a progressive mind for interactive entertainment, and I am so on board. The industry desperately needs this innovation.
