It seems Quantic Dream is heading for something else this year: “You do not need a PlayStation 4 anymore to play our games.”
During GDC 2019, we were able to see the arrival of Quantic Dream ‘s three-star games on the PC, specifically they will be released exclusively by the Epic Games Store this year.
The studio was already looking for people with DirectX 12 experience, and it’s possible that it was related to that.
The fact is that there is a detail that for the less experienced have gone unnoticed, the rights of some games are still owned by Sony, at least IP.
They may have only publishing rights or a portion of the property with clauses.
And is that after the last statements of David Cage, the shadow of a doubt that something has not ended well is in the air.
No one imagined why the Japanese released these games to the PC, and also in a store that was just born.
These are the words of the creative director about the arrival of his games to the PC.
You no longer need a PlayStation to play the Quantic Dream games.
Anyone with a PC can find Ethan Mars, Jodie Holmes or Connor.
“No need to own a PlayStation anymore to play Quantic Dream games. Anyone with a PC will be able to meet Ethan Mars, Jodie Holmes, and Connor.” – David Cage
To calm the waters, Cage left a second more conciliatory message.
Thank you all for your comments after announcing our games on PC.
I would also like to thank Sony for these years of collaboration and all PlayStation players for their passion and support.
Of course, we will continue to develop games for PlayStation in the future.
However, Detroit Become Human, Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls released for platforms like PS3 and PS4, were published and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment, and although they were not great sales successes, they had the support of critics.
It’s expected that the next will also hit the Xbox One.
