Beyond: Two Souls writer David Cage has confirmed that Quantic Dreams’ incoming title is in beta and that a release date will be announced soon.
Speaking with IGN, Cage said just that, “Beyond is almost in beta. It will come out this year and the release date will be announced soon.”
Cage also shared his thought on rumours that PS4 will block the use of pre-owned titles, “On one hand, I understand consumer’s position. Games are expensive. When they buy something they want to be able to trade it, most of the time to buy more games. I can understand that point.
“On the other side, I understand the point of the industry. Each time you buy a used game, this is money that doesn’t go into the pocket of the people that took the risk to create this, to finance it, to develop it. This is also unfair.
“So I don’t know what is the right answer. I don’t know if making this impossible [to play used games] is the answer. Maybe it is, maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s more about explaining and about telling people who really love games that if they buy used games, there will be a day where there won’t be any new games at all.”
