Quantic Dream, based in Paris has just revealed that it has hired the help of well known actor and actress for its next project on the PlayStation 3. The developers are known best for their critically acclaimed title Heavy Rain on the PlayStation 3. According to the official statement from the game director, David Cage, Quantic Dream is ready to reveal its next project. The statement reads that the new project from the company will be revealed during this year’s E3 press conference.
No further details about the project are currently available. The developers also did not reveal the name of the two Hollywood sensations they have hired for the next project.
Quantic Dream has always been very careful with the people it chooses to perform for their games. The company believes that hiring proper actors and actresses for games is a crucial step in achieving realism in games. The developer also has a very comprehensive motion capture studio in its developing facility which it uses for its games. Through this motion capture facility, the developers have achieved exceptional results with Heavy Rain. Last year Quantic Dream also revealed a demonstration of a new in house engine that their new project will be use. This advance new engine relies heavily on motion capture to gain near realistic expressions in the game world.
This isn’t the first time Quantic Dream will be hiring professional actors for its game. When Heavy Rain was in development, Cage had hired Pascal Langdale to not only provide the voice, but also the expressions of the main character, Ethan Mars.
According to official press statement from the developers, it is currently working on two different projects for Sony. Details on these projects are still unknown and it is still unconfirmed whether both the projects will appear on PlayStation 3 or not.
Quantic Dream exclusively develops for Sony, so we are expecting that the two projects in the pipeline might have an exclusive project for Sony PlayStation Vita. For further details on the new projects from Quantic Dream, don’t forget to see Sony’s press conference at E3.
