Beyond: Two Souls might not have impressed all of us uniformly but the developers did put in a lot of effort and Quantic Dream is also credited with giving us Heavy Rain. Therefore, the future projects they are working on deserve a lot of anticipation. As it appears, the Parisian studio looks like they are working on multiple AAA PS4 exclusive titles.
On the official website of Quantic Dream, they have said that they need an experienced Animated Technical Director who will work on their proprietary 3D software tools for the next generation; the listing specifically mentions future PS4 titles. Here’s a translation:
You will be attached to the R & D “Maya Tools” department. You will understand the needs of animators and make tools integrated with Maya or independent, using a variety of technologies (Maya, Python, Motion Builder) depending on needs. You need to understand and assimilate the animation pipeline from Motion Capture to Quantic Dream’s proprietary PS4 engine.
You will also provide maintenance and documentation for the tools and the animation production pipeline. You have a strong knowledge of development tools in Python. You will be creative and motivated to be with us on our future AAA next-gen projects.
Looking at the cinematic sequences of their previous titles, one can expect the developer’s emphasis on animation. However, it is still unclear what the projects are that they are working on.
We do know that Gamescom and TGS are going to bring forth some new announcements, could Quantic Dream’s PS4 exclusive titles be among them?
