Quantic Dream: “We’ll stay with Sony”

In case you were in any doubt, Quantic Dream has confirmed, again, that it loves Sony best and is quite happy to remain a platform-exclusive developer for now.

“This isn’t a partnership where we are forced by a big company into giving immediate results,” studio co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumière told OPM UK.

“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.”

Yea I agree with Quantic, this is clear that Sony does give the freedom and trust to every developer

This is why I prefer Sony PlayStation as my primary source of gaming. :)

was there any question as to QD and sony parting ways? I am affraid i can't follow every little bit of info on the web but i had never heard any rumblings of a split between the two.

when insomniac said they wanted to do their own thing, I thought it was a bold move to break away from sony but then if you really think about it. they didnt leave sony, they can still make games and im sure sony is okay with that.

Like bungie can still make games for MS and there is no bad blood between them (that i can ascertain). When these companies enter into binding contracts, they do so of their own will. in many cases they sign them because of security for the project they are working on.

in return, that project is published by the company they signed with. It seems very common and can be beneficial for both parties. In this case, QD didnt seem like they were going to leave so why the reiteration of them staying?

Im really curious if someone started a rumor saying they were thinking of leaving?

There is still hope after all for the gaming industry. Good to know that money is not everything for some people

Could you imagine what would happen if Activision bought Quantic Dream? Nightmare scenario. I don't understand why some people hate Sony... they have invested more in innovation, and taken more chances than anyone. And the results have been amazing at times.

Sony should buy them, quickly ! Quantic Dream is one of the most talented devs on the planet!

Sony doesn't like to buy companies because they like the third party support and if Sony tries to buy every good company they would go down hill fast. Sony is good at having GREAT games for theirs systems.. not so good on advertisements.

darthv721223d ago

they also buy the IP's that some companies develop in exchange for publishing them.

What made you think sony didnt buy companies?

In this business, its the main companies discretion as to if buying the developer is a good financial opportunity. Sony, Ms, EA all do it with smaller devs.

That is how they get their stable of 1st and 2nd party studios.

LightningMokey1223d ago

I said they didn't like to, not that they never did.

Sony has stated this themselves.

This is the reason the con tract for 3 games rather than buying aswell.

urwifeminder1223d ago

Bathyj1223d ago

urwifeminder1223d ago

Me too, See Quantic Dreams on the otherside (PS4)

MikeMyers1223d ago

No reason for them to go anywhere else. As long as they are making games they want to make and have good relations why leave?
