Quantic Dream, the studio behind the narrative-focused Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and Detroit: Become Human, may be working on a new Star Wars game. A trio of sources have reported that the studio has done a deal with Disney for a game that might already be well into development, and Quantic Dream itself dropped a cryptic hint about it too.
The rumor first surfaced last week when French YouTuber Gautoz (via VGC) claimed that Quantic Dream “will be signing with Disney” now that its Sony contract is over. “It looks like they will be working on a Star Wars game,” Gautoz said.
Shortly after that, noted secrets-leaker Tom Henderson, who last week claimed that next year’s Call of Duty game will be Modern Warfare 2, said on DualShockers that he had been told the same thing by a separate source “who provided overwhelming evidence that he had contacts at Quantic Dream.” According to Henderson, the game has been in development for about 18 months. Quantic Dream also apparently “liked” Henderson’s tweet about the story, although it has since unliked it. Make of that what you will.
