Last month we revealed that Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream has a PlayStation 4 project in development. Now the developer reveals that they were one of the very first studios to receive the PlayStation 4 dev kit, and that they started working on their PlayStation 4 game in the middle of 2012.
Quantic Dream’s Vice President Guillaume de Fondaumière said that pre-production on their PlayStation 4 project started in the middle of 2012. He said that it’s a “very ambitious project”, and that the PlayStation 4 game won’t be like anything we’ve seen on the PS3. They see the PS4 as a reason to innovate and create something entirely new.
Currently, most of the Quantic Dream staff is working on finishing Beyond: Two Souls, which will be released exclusively on the PS3 this Fall.
Quantic Dream was present at the PlayStation 4 unveiling, where they revealed some of their technology for the new console, like the “old man” real time rendering seen above.
