Quantic Dream: We're Sticking With Sony
Don't expect Quantic Dream to go multi-platform any time soon. Co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumière has said that the Parisian studio intends to stay Sony-exclusive for the foreseeable future.

Speaking to Official PlayStation Magazine, Fondaumière said that the developer's special partnership with Sony is exactly the reason why it doesn't want to make games for any other platform.

"We proved with Heavy Rain that we can be profitable by making a game for just one platform," he said. "Would we have made more money by going multi-platform? Of course, but on the other hand, we wouldn't be working with Sony as a publisher.

"This isn't a partnership where we are forced by a big company into giving immediate results. 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.

"We're certainly not going to change partner for the sake of making more money; that's not the philosophy behind our studio. As long as we can create the games we want to create, we'll stay with Sony."

Fondaumière added that the critical and commercial success of Heavy Rain led to Quantic Dream expecting a request from Sony to make a sequel. "We said please understand we're not going to do that. We said we still believe we can do so much more with something else, and they accepted our idea."
