Cage: Quantic “in discussion” with Sony over E3 reveal

Thursday, 7th April 2011 10:37 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Quantic Dream boss David Cage has confirmed that a possible E3 unveil of the studio’s next game is being discussed with Sony.

“This is in discussion right now with Sony,” Cage told CVG when asked about an announce in LA in June.

“We’ll see. I can’t really answer anything on release dates. We are in production right now, so nothing will be coming out this year for sure.”

Quantic Dream has said in the past it has two projects in development, with Cage saying recently he’s in an exclusive agreement with Sony for the foreseeable future.

Little is known of the games, aside from them being “very different” to both Heavy Rain and each other, with “different tone and different gameplay, but still based on concepts of narrative, storytelling and emotions.”

Move conundrum

As for whether or not the new game will use motion controls – Heavy Rain had Move plans which were pulled during development, only to be brought back following the game’s launch – the French developer says it’s being thought about.

“We learned a lot doing [Move for Heavy Rain]. We need some time to think about it and see how we can create even more exciting experiences,” he said.

“Maybe there will be more devices in the near future in the same direction but which work slightly differently that will open new ground. I can clearly see how DualShock is the end of an era and we need to move to something else as an industry.”

He continued: “I don’t know if Kinect or Move are the ultimate answer. It’s up to console manufacturers to bring [a new device]. But something will happen, hopefully soon.”

    Seems too soon. I’d rather the reveal be closer to release so we’re not stewing, waiting like we have been for TLG, VersusXIII, etc.
