Quantic Dreams developers of titles like Detroit: Become Human, Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain has revealed its plans to become an independent studio and start publishing games themselves.
This is great news as recent games by these developers have created a conversation about how the console exclusivity has stopped gamers from experiencing their works of art.
Recently titles like Detroit: Become Human, Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain have all been ported over to PC and have appeared on the Epic Games Store. This new independence will give the developers the ability to launch their next games for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.
Quantic Dreams released a press release in which they said, “This new venture will allow us to make decisions in total independence, and to address the technological and strategic opportunities of next-generation platforms. It will also allow us to help other developers, by providing investment and development support, so that they can fully express their talents. We want to support creators of original projects and help them, in turn, to achieve their vision and offer quality, ground-breaking experiences.”
Though no new projects have yet been announced it is rumored that they are busy working on titles for the next generation of consoles and won’t be in a rush to announce anything anytime soon.
There is a conscious debate when it comes to games developed by Quantic Dreams and the dilemma it puts the players in has put the developers on par with industry leaders. In terms of narrative Quantic Dreams has worked hard and it has paid off.
We’re excited to see what the future holds for Quantic Dreams and what they have in store for us next.
