Beyond: Two Souls developer Quantic Dream has reportedly racked up $27 million in bills throughout development of the title.

Speaking with Le Figaro, director Cage reportedly stated that the game cost €20 million / £16.9m / $27m to produce.

By comparison, GTA 5 cost £170 million to make and market. It is now the world’s most expensive video game. It’s made £1 billion so far though, so it’s cool.

The game launches October 8 in North America then October 11 across Europe. It’s a PS3 exclusive.

Are you going to get it? Let us know below.

    I wish they would be transparent and show where the money went, it would shock the general public.

    @7 – Well, you’re obviously underestimating how well Quantic Dream games sell on PS3. Look at the sales for Heavy Rain and how many of us are looking forward to this one.
