Quantic Dream boss David Cage is eyeing the future. The industry veteran told GamesIndustry International that he has plans for the next three games after Beyond: Two Souls, the first of which is already in development.
“I actually have probably my next three games in mind. Although I’m full speed on Beyond, I know what I’m doing after it because it’s already in development,” Cage said. “And I know what I’m doing after that and probably after that. It’s great because I have more ideas than I can develop.”
Cage said he is constantly brainstorming new ideas for games, which “come naturally” to him. He said this constant thinking process is beneficial to the maturation and evolution of his ideas.
“It gives time to ideas really to evolve and to come to a moment where they’re ready to be written,” he said. “So it’s not like I just finished Beyond–‘Oh my God, what am I going to do with the next idea?’ No, it’s something that’s matured for a very long time. That definitely helps a lot.”
Cage did not share specifics on any of his new ideas, though it can be surmised that Quantic Dream’s next body of work will not be a sequel to Beyond: Two Souls. The developer has previously voiced his disdain for sequels, saying they “kill creativity.”
