Quantic Dream confirms PS4 game in the works, will be story and character-driven

Quantic Dream, the developer behind Heavy Rain and upcoming title Beyond: Two Souls, has confirmed the studio is working on a new game for PlayStation 4, reports Eurogamer.

Quantic Dream's Guillaume de Fondaumière said that even though development is still ongoing for Beyond: Two Souls, scheduled to release for PlayStation 3 this October, the company has already begun work on an unnamed PS4 title. According to Fondaumière, it will be primarily driven by its story and characters.

"Innovation is part of our DNA," he said. "We've never duplicated ourselves. We never clone ourselves or other people's projects; we always try to create unique experiences.

"For us, a new console is another reason to try and innovate," he added. "What is certain is that whatever we're working on on PS4 is not going to resemble what we're doing on PS3. We're going to try and reinvent ourselves."

Fondaumière said working with the development architecture for the PS4 is "incomparable" to the PS3, and "very easy."

"We'll be able to express ourselves in a more straightforward way," he said. "So it's perfect, it's excellent."

Fondaumière also stated that Beyond: Two Souls is "so far" a PS3-only title, and that it will not feature optional motion controls for PlayStation Move.
