Beyond: Yoshida “reassured” and “excited” for next Quantic Dream game

Wednesday, 9th October 2013 03:08 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida doesn’t seem super impressed with Beyond: Two Souls’ divisive reception, but has high hopes for David Cage’s next game.

In a quite enigmatic tweet, Yoshida said he visited Cage at Quantic Dream’s headquarters in Paris.

“So I visited David at QD’s office in Paris, shared my honest feedback with Beyond,” he said.

“Reassured how much I’m excited with his next project.”

While we can’t know precisely what is indicated by Yoshida’s “honest feedback”, Beyond: Two Souls reviews have so far demonstrated a mixed reception for PlayStation 3 exclusive, which is not at all what Sony is used to with first-party published games.

Quantic Dream is known to be working on a new project for PS4, but hasn’t revealed any details as yet. It might be called Singularity, and has been in the works since mid-2012. The developer has already shown off what it can do with the hardware with a short film, The Dark Sorcerer.

Thanks, Shack News.

    Bitch slapped.

    Maybe now Cage will develop some humility, or better yet go and make movies like he clearly wants to.

    Personally, I’m enjoying the game thus far. It’s a beautiful game with a fantastic story. It’s a nice change of space from your standard FPS and that’s why it deserves a space in your library.

    Got a couple hours in and all I can say is wtf is this nonsense? David Cage is practically a M Night Shyamalan. He is god awful with writing and I am surprised no one has called him on his shit yet.

    You have to give it up to David Cage, his games are always going to challenge reviewers especially the ones that are always screaming out they want new experiences besides COD and other action games.

    This game (just like Heavy Rain) proved (again) the hypocrisy that is plaguing this industry.

    “a mixed reception, which is not at all what Sony is used to with first-party published games.” Well, they haven’t been on a roll lately: Puppeteer and Rain didn’t do brilliantly on the review front either. On the other hand, The Last Of Us is one of the best-reviewed games of all time, so there’s that.
