KEY POINTS

  • "Sea of Solitude: Director's Cut" is releasing on Nintendo Switch soon
  • The game launches exclusively on the hybrid gaming console
  • Quantic Dream is the studio behind hit PlayStation exclusive titles like "Detroit: Become Human," "Heavy Rains" and more 

Quantic Dream is now excited to offer its games to other gaming platforms after it ended its exclusivity deal with PlayStation in 2019, making its titles widely available to a wider audience. 

Quantic Dream Head of Publishing Guillaume de Fondaumiere, in a recent interview with Nintendo Everything, shared some of the studio's plans. He revealed that the studio is "ready to explore new territories and take on the challenges." It seems that the team is really excited to launch its first game, "Sea of Solitude: Director's Cut," to the hybrid gaming console. 

The executive shared that "As gamers ourselves, many of us have enjoyed playing on Nintendo consoles throughout the decades and when we finally got the opportunity to work on Switch, we embraced it immediately." Fondaumiere also revealed that Nintendo was very helpful and that "the process has been very smooth, not only in receiving kits to enable Jo-Mei to start working on Switch but also for Quantic Dream to become a certified Nintendo publisher.”

When the executive was presented with the idea of launching a game like "Detroit: Become Human" to Nintendo Switch through a port or via the cloud just like "Doom Eternal," his answer disappointed many fans. According to Fondaumiere, games like "Detroit: Become Human," "Beyond: Two Souls," and "Heavy Rain" would remain as PlayStation and PC exclusive titles for now. However, the good news is that the "Sea of Solitude: Director's Cut" is just a start. 

Fans can surely look forward to more Quantic Dream titles in Nintendo's hybrid gaming console. Fondaumière mentioned in the interview that the studio “will keep exploring all partnerships that make sense for our titles and our community in the future.” The executive recognized that “Switch is one of the best-selling consoles in recent years and naturally we’ll support it, starting with Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut, which is a Switch exclusive."

Quantic Dream opened a new studio in Montreal recently and it is currently working on new projects. While it has not shared details on what it is working on, it may have something to do with another Switch title.
