Quantic Dream’s platform plans are shifting, and the developer will now be making games for more than just PlayStation.
NetEase, a Chinese internet company, announced today that it has acquired a minority stake in the developer behind last year’s Detroit: Become Human. Additionally, Quantic Dream posted a two-minute video via Twitter for the occasion as well.

NetEase has cited this endeavor as part of an ongoing goal to move development toward the next generation of games.
Speaking to VentureBeat, Quantic Dream Creative Director David Cage revealed the developer’s intention of expanding its reach beyond PlayStation:
“Our goal is to develop our studio as a global, multi-franchise company, while remaining an independent studio. We want to keep developing original games in the genre we pioneered, but also expand our audience by being present on all platforms.”
For a little more than a decade, Quantic Dream has been responsible for a number of critically acclaimed PlayStation exclusive games. Check out OnlySP’s interview with Detroit: Become Human‘s composer, Philip Sheppard.
