Looks like Quantic Dreams is trying to innovate the formula of narrative.driven games, and it’ll be quite interesting to see how far they’ll manage to go.

Interestingly, another career opportunity ad seeking a Maya Tools Lead¬†also indicates that the developer is working on its own in-house tools for Autodesk’s popular suite. The use of Maya is at the base of most modern development, and looks like the French studio wants a more customized work pipeline than what the base package offers.

This isn’t the first time we hear about custom in-house tools in development at Quantic Dream, that is already working on its own animation tools, still in Maya environment.

The question remains on whether we’ll finally hear something solid about this game at PlayStation Experience. For now Quantic Dream hasn’t been indicated as present, but you never know.
