Quantic Dream founder David Cage has stated that “there is no plan at the moment for a sequel to Beyond: Two Souls.”
Speaking to the folks over on PlayStation.com, Cage ruled out the possibility of a follow-up title to Quantic Dream’s 2013 interactive drama, with the Beyond: Two Souls writer and director insisting that “We love starting new ideas and exploring different directions game after game.”
“I know this is quite unusual in the industry, but we don’t want to make the same game ten times, or feel too comfortable only doing things we know,” Cage added. “We love the excitement of new risks to take, new things to try, new crazy ideas to explore; and see how our fans and the community will react.”
Taking Cage’s comment into context, it shouldn’t come much of a surprise that the developer is uninterested in tackling a sequel to Beyond: Two Souls, considering that Quantic Dream’s new title, Detroit: Become Human, was recently unveiled during Sony’s press conference at Paris Games Week.
Beyond: Two Souls, which was initially released as a PlayStation 3 exclusive in 2013, has been remastered alongside one of Quantic Dream’s other titles, Heavy Rain, for the PlayStation 4.
The remastered version of Beyond: Two Souls is now available as a digital download on the PlayStation Store, while Sony and Quantic Dream have revealed that the Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls Collection is slated for release on March 1, 2016, in North America, March 2 in Europe and March 4 in the UK.
Beyond: Two Souls, which sold more than one million copies worldwide, stars Juno actor Ellen Page and Spider-Man actor Willem Dafoe in the leading roles.
Hardcore Gamer’s review for Beyond: Two Souls called it “a special experience that shows how powerful a device video games can be for storytelling,” as well as representing “Quantic Dream’s most fully realized work to date.”
