Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream have given some brief details of their next project. Unfortunate for folks hoping for a single-player sequel to Heavy Rain, the game’s creator has stated that he wants to take the success of Heavy Rain and apply it to an online gaming experience.
Speaking to IndustryGamers, David Cage said “There are also many interesting changes awaiting us regarding the online space, so this is something we are going to explore in the very near future.”
“Heavy Rain is really the end of a cycle that I started 12 years ago with Omikron: The Nomad Soul, Fahrenheit and then Heavy Rain. So now I want to write more personal stories and maybe stories that have not been told before, because I now understand the grammar and how to use the words in the new language of interactive storytelling. I want to go further.”
“With each project I try to answer one of several questions. And my goal is that by the end of the project I got my answers. So the question you ask is the next one for me, and I’m going to work on it. But you know, I’m not going to do online like World of Warcraft. I think Heavy Rain is really an important moment for Quantic Dream definitely and maybe other people in the industry. So we’ll try to bring to multiplayer experiences the same change that Heavy Rain was to single-player.”
