Rumor – Quantic Dream’s Infraworld back in development
Superannuation has dug up more information on Quantic Dream’s Infraworld, which, if the information is correct, looks to be the “new title” which is rumored for an E3 announcement next week.
According to information the Internet sleuth dug up, a French actress and TV presenter named Priscilla Liaud noted work with a Quantic Dream project due for release in 2013 in her biography.
Super also notes a February 2011 job listing on the company’s LinkedIn page mentioning two titles in the works, known only as “Fiv5″ and “Infraworld.” Both have been trademarked by Sony Europe.
The firm’s recruitment page also mentions the need for employees with experience in “high-quality designs” for both “current and future generations” of consoles.
Super also notes the USPTO asked Sony to add more information to a trademark filed for an “on-line gaming services”, stating the application was “indefinite or vague.”
Sony revised the classification to: “providing on-line computer games; providing game services for enabling temporary use of non-downloadable game programs transmitted by accessing networks and to play repeatedly until power supply disconnection of consumer video game consoles for use with an external display screen or monitor.”
Infraworld was a game in the works at Quantic Dream which it cancelled in 2006 because a publisher couldn’t be obtained, and the title had a cameo in Heavy Rain.
