It's not normal for a man to write a 2,000 page script or direct a 10+ hour film, so I can't blame David Cage if all of Beyond: Two Souls isn't golden. Realizing how this strains developer Quantic Dream's game director, co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumière has begun hiring screenwriters, film directors, and other Hollywood talent to guide Cage on his PlayStation 4 title -- a first for the developer.
"David has so many ideas that Quantic Dream doesn’t have enough resources to put all of these ideas into games," Fondaumière said. "He has grand ideas and concepts. Our job is to turn these ideas into projects. So we are trying to attract talent."
This process has already shown "very positive signs" through Quantic Dream's untitled PlayStation 4 game which is being written by a team of three people, including Cage. However, Cage will continue to base his games on his story ideas and will have final say on project. Cage and Quantic Dream have no interest in adapting someone else's work, at this time.
"Three people is not a lot when you are writing a script between 1,500 and 3,000 pages long," Fondaumière said. "For now, Beyond is entirely written by David but on our next project we’ll have a team around him that is already giving very positive signs."
