As we continue to await the initial announcement of Sony's next-generation system, which is expected to be called the PS4, today we found new information that points to the development of an unannounced title for the system. This information comes from an article that was released today by Kotaku, which points to the development of a title called “Singularity” from the game development studio Quantic Dream.
For those of you that remember, Quantic Dream is the same studio that brought us “Heavy Rain.” Through the release of this title, this video game studio brought a truly unique experience and genre to the PlayStation 3 platform. Now, it appears that they are in the process of delivering a new intellectual property on the PS4 platform.
"Singularity" is a rather curious and possibly revealing title. David Cage acknowledged futurist Ray Kurzweil's recent book The Singularity is Near as a chief influence on Quantic Dream's"Kara" tech demo, and Kurzweil's exploration of the synthesis of man and artificial machine is very much up the wheelhouse of what Cage likes to focus on in his games. When asked in an interview about whether he would elaborate on Kara's themes and milieu in a future game, Cage delivered a rather evasive non-answer. And Cage's games do sometimes have titles that are rather on the nose.
With no further information regarding details surrounding this supposed title for the PS4, we are clueless to what type of experience Quantic Dream is looking to bring to the table with this release. Outside of this, fans can take a look at the slideshow featured above this article to view a few concept photos of the PS4.
