Star Wars Eclipse is only one of the three games currently in preparation at Quantic Dream, confirms the studio of David Cage in a statement. Only downside, these games just come out of their pre-production phase in the best case, and it says that the studio would have difficulty strengthening its workforce.
Let’s start with the official speech: coming out of the year 2021, Quantic Dream is doing well. The studio recorded a net outcome of 5.8 million euros, which represents a record profit for the third consecutive year. The merit returns mainly to Detroit: Become Human, which has now sold more than any other Quantic Dream game.
“Nos very good financial results can be explained by the robustness of the sales of our Back catalog titles, including Detroit: Become Human, which has exceeded the symbolic bar of the million copies sold on Steam during the year 2021. This title is now the largest commercial success of Quantic Dream, with more than 6.5 million copies sold on PC and PS4 in the world “, confirms Director General Guillaume de Fondaumière.
By counting Star Wars Eclipse , its big contract unveiled last December to Game Awards, Quantic Dream is currently working on three games. But while the exit of Detroit: Become Human dates back to May 25, 2018, none of these three titles seems close to his exit. “_Quantic Dream is continuing serenely the distinct development of its three internal productions. Now that the pre-production and prototyping phases have been carried out, 2022 will mark a new step of progression in the phases of production of these three unique titles”, perhaps We read.
It is not the only one in this case, but Quantic Dream needs to reinforce. If he says he has increased his workforce by more than 50% in 2021, the studio is now engaged in a second major recruitment cycle on its two production sites in Paris and Montreal. “In constant innovation concern, we open up new types of games and challenges and we will continue to make an important effort in research and development. This offers great opportunities for those who wish to work on ambitious and innovative projects., within diversified teams and more and more led by women “, Advance Sophie Buhl, production director.
This call for recruitment and this new communication exercise intervene a few days after the publication of an article by Tom Henderson, whose sources estimate that Star Wars Eclipse will not be available before 2027 or 2028. To believe the Article, the diffusion of the majestic kinematic trailer at Game Awards would not have had the expected effect on the recruitment of talents. A source would also have suggested that Quantic Dream hopes to acquire, a few years after receiving a NetEase Games investment out of its long-term relationship with PlayStation.
