Third party developer, Quantic Dream have revealed that they’ll stay exclusive to Sony as long they have the freedom to do what they want.
In an interview with PlayStation Magazine UK, Quantic Dream’s Co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumière said that the Heavy Rain developer isn’t currently look to partner with any other company as a result of the creative freedom Sony has given to the developer regardless of whether they’re owned by Sony.
“We started working with Sony in 2006 and it’s been a very interesting relationship ever since. It’s a partnership that’s been built on trust,” said Fondaumiere who then went on to explain their relationship with Sony in more detail. “This isn’t a partnership where we are forced by a big company into giving immediate results. That’s fantastic for a studio like us. Ever since we started our partnership, Sony just said it was going to give us the money to build these games and we said we were going to work as hard as we could and reward it for its trust.”
The Co-CEO also added that “We’re certainly not going to change partner for the sake of making more money; that’s not the philosophy behind our studio.” said Fondaumiere. ” As long as we can create the games we want to create, we’ll stay with Sony.”
Quantic Dream aren’t the only developer to have praised Sony recently. Retro City Rampage developer Brian Provinciano yesterday told told IGN that working with Sony has much more of a liberal approach to its developers with the ease of getting their game onto PlayStation consoles was much easier. Provinciano compared them to Microsoft by revealing “You have very little control [Getting a game on the Xbox]. You’re just lucky to get whatever slot you get.”
Quantic Dream’s next game, Beyond: Two Souls is out this October.
