Heavy Rain, the story-driven game from developer Quantic Dream, has been delayed till 2010. The title was scheduled to come out later this year but Guillaume de Fondaumiere, the co-CEO of Quantic Dream, has offered more insights on the reason the PS3 exclusive is being delayed to 2010. According to him, one key reason is because a game as innovative as Heavy Rain “needs space.”
Speaking to CVG, he said that with the sheer number of games getting released at the end of the year, delaying Heavy Rain would give them time to ease gamers into a new franchise, especially considering that the game brings something new to the table.
“A game like Heavy Rain needs space, needs to be explained and shown. At the end of the year, people can’t afford to buy all those games so we wanted to give Heavy Rain the chance to have its own release window, and for us to really talk about it so people really understand it.”
