Quantic Dream’s BEYOND: TWO SOULS remains a divisive title, some found the seamless storytelling a worthy successor to the 2010 critically acclaimed, and frankly game-changing HEAVY RAIN. Others, however, found the narrative failed as the immersive experience expected. Whatever the case, it’s a successful game and while it was far from perfect it’s paving the way for the future of ‘interactive movies’.
The company announced on January 10th that it had sold 1 million copies of the Playstation 3 exclusive since its release in October 2013. HEAVY RAIN remains the high bench mark for the company, at 3 million sales it’s an accomplishment they’ll no doubt want to trump. While it’s ambitious at best to see BEYOND: TWO SOULS racking up as many sales, stranger things have happened.
A PS4 game described as ‘very, very different’ to BEYOND: TWO SOULS and HEAVY RAIN is currently in the pipeline for Quantic Dream.
