David Cage, CEO and founder of Quantic Dream, has revealed in an interview with GamesIndustry that they are testing to see if they can bring something new that has not been done in virtual reality.
The French study Quantic Dream, creators of Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, is currently exploring the possibility of developing a game for virtual reality. David Cage, CEO and founder of Quantic Dream, is encouraging his team to experiment with virtual reality, but makes it clear that they will not do anything until they can contribute your own style to this new medium.
“We have all the virtual reality devices. We have downloaded all the games from each platform to test them and understand where we are right now, what works and what doesn’t work, and what we could contribute. The idea is not to do something in virtual reality for the simple fact of being virtual reality. It’s about saying something in this medium that hasn’t already been said,” Cage said.
The stories of Quantic Dream games usually bring the player into the narrative through a control system that launches contextual actions through combinations of buttons or the analog stick. “Virtual reality is going to be an interesting avenue for what we’re doing, because if we talk about immersion and the fact is that you find yourself inside the world with the characters, it’s going to be something very very interesting,” Cage said.
The team is currently developing Detroit: Become Human for PlayStation 4, but they have not commented on anything about support for PlayStation VR.
