Quantic Dreams, makers of Heavy Rain, have teased two new projects coming from the studios, neither related to their existing properties. David Cage, CEO of the company, outlined the upcoming IP in an interview with the Examiner.
“We currently work on two very different projects,” said Cage, “After the success of Heavy Rain, we continue to explore how we can go further with interactive drama, working on emotion and interactive storytelling for a mature audience, but with a very different story and a different approach. I think that people who enjoyed Heavy Rain will be surprised by what we prepare…Often, after a long and challenging project like Heavy Rain, it is difficult for the team to get excited again about a new idea,” he said. “This is absolutely not the case at the moment at Quantic and all the team seems enthusiastic about the possibility of other projects. The team and the company continue to grow in experience, confidence and talent.”
He continued, “After Heavy Rain, we have some credibility in experimenting with new IPs and new concepts. We are not going to play it safe from now, we are going to use this credibility to continue to take risks, give ourselves exciting challenges and try to invent new ways of playing. I believe that this is what Quantic Dream’s fans expect us to do. It is also what keeps me passionate about what we are doing.”
