We had time to talk about the good times of the company, the not so good times of the firm and one of the most surprising and recent chapters in its history: the departure of PlayStation Studios. In this regard, Cage showed a very kind face with those who were his partners for more than twelve years.

Heavy Rain, Beyond and Detroit, none of these games would have been possible without PlayStationDavid Cage“The collaboration with PlayStation was wonderful,” he acknowledged, “when we started working with them we were a very small studio. We talked about the time we started working on Heavy Rain, back in 2007. And they’ve been incredibly helpful with us, they gave us all the creative freedom we wanted and supported all our projects for twelve years and it’s been an incredible journey together.” He stressed that everyone on the team is “so proud of everything we’ve achieved together… Heavy Rain, Beyond : Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human, and none of these games would have been possible without your support“.

For all those reasons and others we decided to get out of our comfort zone and put ourselves in danger and take on new challenges.” He specified that “NetEase joined us and they invested in the company for the new projects and finance them, and we became a publisher, editing our games, doing all the marketing, communication and creation work; but we also publish games from other studios, which we also consider important.”
