Narrative video game design company Quantic Dream is going to have a busy period for a while, as the company is releasing all three of its most recent narrative adventure games onto the PC. The Quantic Dream PC ports are going to be focusing on Detroit: Become Human, Heavy Rain, and Beyond: Two Souls.
Quantic Dream, a studio best known for its president and main producer David Cage, has made narrative games that are Cage’s brainchildren for nearly its entire existence. Often the games are heavily divisive among gamers themselves, whether for poor writing, sloppy implementation of mechanics, out-of-nowhere plot twists, or Cage’s own preferences slipping into the cutscenes.
Whether this means turning a supernatural murder story into something involving a secret war between a world conspiracy and evil AI in Indigo Prophecy, the United States for some reason deciding to conquer the afterlife in Beyond: Two Souls, or extremely heavy-handed android racism metaphors in Detroit: Become Human, the Quantic Dream games have nearly always been a success.
The Quantic Dream PC ports are only coming after years and years of the games featured being only available on the Playstation 3 (Heavy Rain) and PS4 (Beyond Two Souls, Detroit), so who knows how they’ll turn out in the long run, but you’ll be able to find them on the Epic Games Store.
This makes the Quantic Dream games only the latest acquisition from Epic, which has been snatching up various properties left and right in a variety of PC ports, ranging from thatgamecompany’s Journey to Obsidian Entertainment’s The Outer Worlds, and 4A Games’s Metro: Exodus.
While some of these games are only limited exclusivity, and will be coming to Steam in around a year, it still gets Epic a lot of time to reap in the rewards from these games. You’ll be able to also buy the Quantic Dream PC ports later this year.
