Superannuation finds stuff. It's sort of...what he does. This time, he's scouted out a SCEE trademark that he thinks could be a new Quantic Dream game - yes, the same French company that made Heavy Rain.
The trademark can be found here. It's owned by:
1. Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Limited
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Limited
10 Great Marlborough Street London, W1F 7LP
Legal Entity Type: Limited Liability Company
With brand new filing dates;
Date of Status: 2011-07-08
Filing Date: 2011-05-17
He also linked us to a Eurogamer article from the start of the year with this information;
Superannuation spotted mention of Infraworld, the game COO Guillaume de Fondaumiere confirmed was canned back in 2006.
But, as Superannuation notes, creative tour de force David Cage said in March last year that the basis of the story for his next game is already written.
There's even mention of Infraworld in a Heavy Rain Easter Egg. Could it be back on?
So, to decipher this; since the trademark is still piping hot, it's very possible Infraworld is Quantic Dream's next project, either not cancelled or brought back from the dead.
It also sounds like the mental idea that could only ooze from David Cage's 'artistic' (read: crazy French) brain.
Sounds like a good punt. Maybe we'll see this announced this year.
One of two games Quantic are working on for SCEE.
