Quantic Dream's David Cage announced it will no longer release exclusive games to a single platform going forward. 

"Quantic Dream is not exclusive to any platform anymore," Cage told DualShockers in an interview. "So yes, unless there are some specific exclusivity deals on a title-by-title basis, all our games will be released on all platforms at launch."

Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls are available now for Windows PC via the Epic Games Store, while Detroit: Become Human will release for Epic Games Store later this year.

So there is no real news here? QD was never a 1st party studio and they always had exclusives on a per-game basis.

Oh well, there goes the single hardware optimisation.

When they made the deal with the chinese corp last year it was evident they wouldn't be exclusives. But he still said that it can be exclusive depending on the deal.

Next in development a Heavy Rain FPS.

Ahh, so he says not exclusive to any platform, but throws in the clause for exclusivity deal to a store like Epic, effectively covering his back for future deals. While I like this approach, I do not like the timed exclusivity one either and wish he would drop that ideal as well. If you want me as a customer, you have to drop that timed exclusivity ideal you seemingly want to hold onto, David.

A vastly overrated developer. Supermassive Games's Until Dawn outshone every game QD has put out for 2 generations while spending less money.

Spike0503 (on 13 August 2019)

I'm getting mixed signals from this. The fact he's saying "anymore" and making a big fuss about it could mean the company is becoming multi-platform only for the future. Yet this part "unless there are some specific exclusivity deals on a title-by-title basis" makes it sound as if more PS or MS exclusives could happen. Corporate speak is such a pain.

pokoko (on 13 August 2019)

What corporate speak? That's as plain as day. The games they make will be multi-platform unless someone contracts them to develop an exclusive.
