David Cage's studio is publishing a story-driven game about a roadtrip across a divided America



It has been a while since we've heard anything from David Cage's studio, Quantic Dream. After Detroit: Become Human in 2018, the developer has mostly been silent apart from some PC ports of games that were previously PlayStation exclusives.

Now we know Quantic Dream's newest game, but not in a developer capacity. It's publishing an indie game that seems like it spiritually fits among everything in Cage's portfolio. Quantic Dream is publishing Dustborn, which is a story-driven adventure game that's set to come to PC and consoles sometime next year.

There's a lot to process with Dustborn. Broadly speaking, it's a transcontinental roadtrip in 2030 where you play as a pregnant woman named Pax who's delivering a mysterious package. The world has sort of gone to hell after an event called "The Broadcast," which seems to have been a disinformation campaign that divided America. It's literally fake news that seems to have caused a civil war of sorts, and developer Red Thread Games says Pax and her friends need to survive via "manipulation, subterfuge, and force."

Got all that? David Cage's involvement wouldn't make sense unless there was a lofty premise and a lot of promises to live up to.
