Quantic Dream AAA’s second “humorous” game is reportedly in development

Quantic Dream, the developer of the recently announced Star Wars Eclipse and Detroit: Become Human, is currently developing a second AAA game alongside Star Wars Eclipse, according to an insider previously aware of Quantic Dream’s plans.

Twitter user @AccNgT, who posted screenshots of Star Wars Eclipse a few days before the game was officially unveiled at The Game Awards, stated that another game, this time being developed by the “main Paris team”, is in development at Quantic Dream.

The game is reportedly based on The Dark Wizard, a technology demo that Quantic Dream has released for the PS4.

In a 12-minute clip, a wizard uses dark magic before it is revealed that this is all happening on set, and the demo turns into a comedy sketch. Detroit: Become Human by Quantic Dream also started out as a tech demo called “Kara”.

In December, it was reported that a Star Wars eclipse could occur in three or four years.

On Twitter on December 10, industry insider Tom Henderson, who confirmed initial reports on the game earlier this year, said: “Several things on #Star WarsEclipse “Written by QD Paris (with active contributions from David Cage).”

He further stated that “it is believed that there are at least 3-4 years left before Eclipse” and that “[Quantic Dream] Paris is currently struggling with recruiting (I wonder why). “

Henderson’s “I wonder why” comment probably refers to the sexual harassment allegations that were brought against the company in 2019.

A subsequent tweet stated that “the biggest thing on the developer side is their internal QD engine, which was not built for open world play. There are currently over 60 vacancies in Quantic Dream Paris and 9 in Montreal. “

Star Wars: Eclipse – Official Cinematic Trailer

The first trailer showcases impressive visuals, including footage of Yoda and the planet Naboo.

In 2021, Lucasfilm made it clear that its exclusive Star Wars deal with EA had been completed – or at least coming to an end – by partnering with Ubisoft on a new open-world game.
