Star Wars: Game of the Heavy Rain makers supposedly with a lot of action

Star Wars

It was only recently that the rumor arose that the developer studio Quantic Dream was supposedly working on a game in the Star Wars universe. Two well-known insiders and leakers reported on such a project, but without being able to give more precise details or even sources. But apparently there actually seems to be some truth to the matter, as a recent report by colleagues from Kotaku suggests.

The magazine cites an unspecified source that allegedly relates to the current events at Quantic Dream. According to this, the secret Star Wars game has been in development for about a year and a half and should be correspondingly well advanced. Incidentally, it should be clearly different from the previous games (Heavy Rain, Detroit: Become Human) of the French studio. The focus should be on more classic action gameplay instead of quick time events and a deep story. In addition, a large open-world environment as well as unspecified multiplayer elements are planned.

Previous inquiries regarding an opinion on the part of Quantic Dream on this topic have so far remained unanswered. Therefore, you should treat the whole matter with a certain amount of caution for the time being. However, since the clues have been piling up in the past few days, the whole thing is probably not completely upset. As your comments on the original report show, you can imagine a Star Wars game from Quantic Dream very well.

Star Wars game by Quantic Dream will reportedly feature an open world, action gameplay, and multiplayer

Rumor mill: Online denizens may have noticed rumors last week of a Star Wars game being developed by an unlikely studio: Quantic Dream, famous for cinematic, QTE-packed titles such as Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and Detroit: Become Human. Now, we hear that its upcoming journey into a galaxy far, far away will include traditional action gameplay and possibly feature an open world along with multiplayer elements.

YouTuber Gautoz (via VGC) started the rumor on September 16 when he claimed the studio had made a deal with Disney for a Star Wars game following the end of Quantic Dream’s three-year exclusivity deal with Sony.

Another report, this one from DualShockers, backed up the claim, adding that the game has been in development for 18 months. Perhaps tellingly, Quantic Dream’s official Twitter account Liked an article about the report.

Quantic Dream is well-known for making a certain type of game: fairly linear, plenty of quick-time events, lots of decisions-with-consequences. Its love of interactive storytelling earned it several appearances on our Most Watchable Games for Non-Gamers list. The prospect of a Star Wars title made in a similar mold might not appeal to everyone, but it seems that crowd has little to worry about.

Kotaku has spoken to a third source with knowledge of the game’s development, who claims it will feature more traditional gameplay. However, Quantic Dream’s aging proprietary game engine and development tools aren’t particularly suited to making this type of title, so it’s been an uphill struggle.

Studio founder David Cage previously said he would not be averse to making an open-world game, and several job listings on Quantic Dream’s website suggest this is the route it is taking, but there’s no specific mention of Star Wars.

DualShockers writer Tom Henderson earlier tweeted that we might not have long to wait for the first official announcement of Quantic Dream’s Star Wars. He writes that animation studio Unit Image, which created trailers for God of War, Far Cry 6, Death Stranding, and many more, is working on a teaser, pending Disney’s approval.
