French upstart DONTNOD Entertainment and Capcom have only recently joined forces on Remember Me. The two met up last year following a fall out with Sony. As we’d rumoured at the time, the cyberpunk title was going to be a PlayStation 3 exclusive. But that, of course, fell through.
"The Sony deal was signed February 2010 and ended a year later. We were totally independent, and had no publisher, but we were looking for one," creative lead Jean-Maxime Moris told Joystiq.
The big question is: what went wrong? "I won't go into too many details, but basically they cancelled a bunch of projects, and we were just one of them. It felt bad at the time. And now, in retrospect, it's just one step toward where we are now.”
Moris added that he’s “very happy” to be working with Capcom, and that Remember Me is a great fit for the company’s DNA. If you haven’t seen the title’s debut trailer yet, it’s well worth a look.
