Quantic Dream has finally revealed the box art for the long-awaited game Beyond: Two Souls, which will be the first videogame ever to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, followed by a panel with writer/director David Cage. Ever since the absolutely thrilling Heavy Rain was released, fans began speculating on how Quantic Dream could take it to the next level – and the company responded by announcing the aforementioned game, which features Academy Award nominees Ellen Paige and Willem Dafoe as Jodie Holmes and Nathan Dawkins, respectively.
The highly ambitious project was first announced in 2012 by Cage during a press conference. Even though the game is slated for a PS3 release this October, it seems Quantic Dream wants a PS4 release, as well. However, several company executives have revealed that another as-of-yet untitled game, which was meant to be released on the PS4 all along, has been in development since 2012. The title at one point was considered to be Singularity (since Quantic Dream registered the domain name for SingularityPS4.com), but Activision’s already releasing a first-person shooter of the same name this year, therefore they own the rights. Further confusion is created by Quantic Dream Vice President Guillaume de Fondaumière, who was asked by Eurogamer whether Beyond: Two Souls would be released on the unreleased console, to which he replied: “That’s not been decided yet.”
I really don’t see how this is bad news. If anything, Beyond: Two Souls will benefit from a next-gen console release. So what if we have to wait a little longer for it to come out? Quantic Dream seem to know what they’re doing – it’s been three years since the release of Heavy Rain, which received countless accolades and was considered an instant classic, and they’ve taken their time developing their new, seemingly innovative game. Will Beyond: Two Souls be released on the PS4? Check out the box art and tell us what you think.
