Could Singularity Be Quantic Dream's First PS4 Game?

Posted by Sammy Barker

We're already drooling

Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream is currently applying the finishing touches to its upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive Beyond: Two Souls – but the studio may also be working on a PlayStation 4 title. Seasoned online snoop Superannuation has uncovered a domain name for SingularityPS4.com, which was registered by the Parisian outfit in mid-November.

The name, as Superannuation notes, is curious, as David Cage recently cited Ray Kurzweil’s 2005 novel The Singularity Is Near as an influence on the developer’s Kara technology demo. The author had been working on cinematic adaptation with Roland Emmerich and Sony Pictures, before the project was canned. Bizarrely, the flick carried the Singularity moniker, too.

Meanwhile, the domain itself follows the same format as previous Quantic Dream websites, such as HeavyRainPS3.com and BeyondPS3.com. Given the trend, it’s perhaps safe to assume that Sony will name its next platform PlayStation 4, and not Orbis as it's currently codenamed.

Unfortunately, details about the project itself are slim. The aforementioned novel deals with the union of man and machine, which certainly sounds like the kind of topic that would get Cage excited. Personally, we just can’t wait to see what the studio achieves with next generation hardware. Drool.

Kara was cool. Would not be disappointed if that was Cage's first ps4 project.

DO NOT TEASE ME! This sounds awesome and very possible. And as my appetite for Cyber punk has already been whet by Cyber Punk 2077 i really hope this comes to fruition.
Now i think i will watch The Ghost in The Shell 2.0 and GITS 2: innocence bluray.

Just finished Vanquish last night and kept thinking of Kara - and the girl in Beyond - whenever they showed the girl in that game. Something about video games and young pale girls with freckles I guess.
