In a recent interview with EGM, Quantic Dream’s David Cage expressed strong interest in exploring multiplayer in a less conventional fashion. (Beyond: Two Souls, David Cage, PS3, PS4, Quantic Dream)

Will be interesting if he can pull this off.
This is what nextgen should be about.

I just want them to Focus on the Single player. But if it's something unique I'm all for it.

QD wants to make some sort of multiplayer where you are a host and someone is ghost that resides "in you"... and you act together or something like that... i would name it Coop, but hell i dont know what do they want to do...maybe they dont know it too and those are experimnents only.

Wouldn't be surprised if they tackle down multiplayer in a similar way ThatGameCompany did with Journey.

I suppose they could do something similar to Dark Souls... allow other users to place hints or clues in your world? Or even come in as a ghostly image to help solve puzzles in a Journey kind of way. You don't know who it is, you cant communicate outside of some kind of sound or vibration?

Or just make a horde mode. lol

Hmmm think I would want a mutliplayer that doesn't intertwine with the singleplayer to be honest. These games are supposed to be interactive stories of sorts and having another player interfere with your story like that?
I dunno....

I mean imagine if Heavy Rain had something like that, everyone would have the same ending with the other people online guiding them through the same path. Where it works in things like Jounrey where there is a linear goal to head to, it takes away from the individuality of something like HR. I think.

Leave it to Quantic Dreams though, I'm sure whatever they are planning with online gameplay will be genius. Either that or they make another Modern / near future war FPS

It would be really cool if they gave you the ability to make decisions that would affect other players playing. It would be really complicated and a lot of work, but it'll be amazing if it turned out well

A big pretentious hack who mades sub-par ADVENTURE games.

Buddy, you have something on your face.

Please don't compromise the quality of your games with something as unneeded as multiplayer! You've got amazing story driven experiences and you shouldn't bow anyones demand. This is probably being forced since sony is slowing forcing everyone to be online and share their lives and personal information with everyone.

I could see Cage...
taking a lot of influence from Journey and its somewhat abstract form of co-op for one of his own games.
