Heavy Rain dev staying PS3-exclusive

Cage: It's "the best platform out there".

Quantic Dream, the French developer behind acclaimed PlayStation 3 mystery Heavy Rain, will continue to work exclusively for Sony platforms, boss David Cage has announced.

Cage told CVG that the studio had a healthy working relationship with Sony, adding that the platform holder boasted the world's best studios.

"We have an exclusive relationship with Sony," he explained. "The relationship on Heavy Rain has been fantastic. They trusted us from day one, supported us all the way through. It was really a very risky project [for them] and they never let us down.

"Being a part of a company with what are probably the best studios in the world is something really pleasant for us. We're happy to continue this relationship and create content for the PlayStation brand. But they fund our projects, so we're staying exclusive to PlayStation.

"We have a relationship that works, we're excited by the platform – we think it's the best platform out there. We're glad to continue to work this way."

Cage hasn't officially announced Quantic's next project yet, but earlier this week suspicious domain registrations popped up for something called Fiv5.
