Quantic Dream have revealed that they started work on their mystery Playstation 4 project around the middle of 2012 when Vice president Guillaume de Fondaumière recently spoke to Eurogamer. Not only does this mean they are around a year into the development process already, but they were also one of the first studios in the world to actually receive the dev kit.
“We received PS4 development kits – at the beginning it’s specs then it becomes early kits – very early on, We were among the first studios in the world to receive those kits. Technology has been going on for quite a while now, We’ve started to work on the pre-production of that new game since the middle of last year.” – Guillaume de Fondaumière
They also mentioned that they will be sticking to the style of games that they are known for, but that the new system will also provide them with the ability to try things that were previously impossible.
“Innovation is part of our DNA. We’ve never duplicated ourselves. We never clone ourselves or other people’s projects; we always try to create unique experiences. For us, a new console is another reason to try and innovate. What is certain is that whatever we’re working on on PS4 is not going to resemble what we’re doing on PS3… We’re going to try and reinvent ourselves.”– Guillaume de Fondaumière
