Heavy Rain 2 and Fahrenheit 2 looking unlikely according to Quantic Dream

When it rains it pours in the Heavy Rain videogame
Fahrenheit 2 AKA Indigo Prophecy 2 and Heavy Rain 2 aren’t sure bets despite past success — Fahrenheit has sold over 800,000 units worldwide — and the expected future success of Heavy Rain as a PS3-exclusive.

Quantic Dream designer David Cage has said so in a recent interview at GamesCom 2009. To quote him: “I’m not sure there will be a Heavy Rain 2. I’m not a guy who does sequels, because, when you work on a story, you have something to say. It’s a response to a moment of your life and what you want to express.”

  • But what did he have to say about the fan-favorite Fahrenheit (PC, PS2, Xbox, Xbox Originals)? Much of the same I’m afraid.

    To quote: “But it’s the same reason I didn’t want to do a Fahrenheit 2, because I got the feeling I said what I had to say on the story and the characters. And with Heavy Rain, it’s pretty much the same. I feel the same way.”

    “There are so many great stories to tell. That’s why just doing sequels of sequels of sequels doesn’t make any sense.” – David Cage

    I suppose these games might be better off telling their original stories and letting them stand on their own. In that train of thought Mr. Cage ends with this pearl of wisdom:

    “I mean, there are so many great stories to tell. That’s why just doing sequels of sequels of sequels doesn’t make any sense. I know it’s a trend in this industry to do sequels, but we can do different things. We hope to reach a point in Heavy Rain where people will be interested in “David Cage’s next title” rather than Heavy Rain 2. So if people enjoy Heavy Rain, maybe my name will become part of the brand. Maybe I can use it more to do what I want to do, rather than having to do sequels.”

      I would like to see a horror game similar to the gameplay of Heavy Rain. Even though Heavy Rain hasn’t come out yet, I’m already looking forward to their next game!

    • Vince have you played Dead Space yet? I think that might be what you’re looking for because in both Heavy Rain and Dead Space the HUD is part of the gameplay experience. It’s very slick.

      The reason the sequels are unsure is because yes Fahrenheit sold 800,000 copies which is a terribly low number of sales considering those were its worldwide lifetime sales. If you look at the big games that get sequels they sell at least a million copies in the United States in their first month of being on the shelves.

      Which is unfortunate because I quite enjoyed Indigo Prophecy and Heavy Rain looks very intriguing.

      I didn’t know this company did Indigo Prophecy. I honestly didn’t care for that game, but bought Heavy Rain. No, I’m not regretting the purchase yet 🙂 HR looks damn good.

      I really love this quote.
      That is exactly what I hate about Final Fantasy 7.
