Quantic Dream develops games exclusively for Sony’s PlayStation 3, but it is not a first-party studio. Speaking to IGN (via CVG) at the Game Developers Conference this week, studio boss David Cage said he’d be “open” to being aquired by Sony.
“We’re open to all options, but again, we’re not a studio driven by money,” said Cage. “It’s an important element, of course, but it’s not like ‘tell me how much money you give me and I’m going to do whatever you want.’
“What matters to us is ‘what is the project, what is the long-term vision, do we share common vision for the studio?’… What could be the vision for the studio. And if all this makes sense, then yeah, why not join Sony or another partner. We’re open to all options.”
Whether an aquisition happens or not, don’t expect to see Quantic develop for other systems any time soon.
“We are exclusive to Sony right now, so no, we work only on PlayStation 3.”
Quantic most recently revealed Kara, the foundation of its new engine, at GDC.
