Beyond Two Souls

In a recent interview with the Official PlayStation Magazine UK [as cited by GIBiz] Quantic Dream boss, David Cage has suggested that sequels damage innovation in games development.

Cage notes though that gamers are demanding sequels.

“If you’re interested in innovation and believe that games could be more than shooters, then you realise that sequels kill creativity and innovation,” claimed Cage.

“We don’t give people what they expect. We want to give them something they want without knowing they want it.”

“Gamers invest money in publishers having no interest in innovation. [Gamers] encourage [publishers] to keep making the same game every Christmas, and everybody’s happy.”

Quantic Dream is currently developing a new IP, Beyond: Two Souls which stars Hollywood startlet Ellen Page. The studio’s previous project, Heavy Rain, offered an interactive gaming experience that was out of the norm. And by the look of things Beyond: Two Souls is also being created in a somewhat unique manner.
