Quantic Dream's Beyond: Two Souls Might Be Headed to the PlayStation 4 – Listing
This is not the first time a possible remaster of the adventure title comes up
Some evidence has surfaced on the Internet, being conducive to the fact that Sony is planning to bring the cinematic action adventure title Beyond: Two Souls to the PlayStation 4.The rumor has been now initiated by two separate listings, on the store fronts of two German retailers, Alcom and World of Games, suggesting that Beyond: Two Souls is up for a PlayStation 4 re-release.
One of the websites points to a September release window, while the other simply lists a 2014 one. The September release window is not something that completely rules out the possibility of Beyond: Two Souls showing up on Sony's next-gen computer entertainment system, as Naughty Dog's The Last of Us: Remastered wasn't confirmed until April, and it's slated for release at the end of this month.
Developer Quantic Dream has been working with the PlayStation 4 since before the device was launched for the public, and Sony pledged their support for the kind of narrative-driven games that the company delivers, because in spite of the fact that they don't sell as well as the platform's blockbusters, they're still worthwhile experiences that enrich the palette of options available to PlayStation system owners.
Quantic Dream is also known for pushing the boundaries of the PlayStation hardware, just like Naughty Dog, so it makes sense that Sony would want them involved in a project for its new platform.
In addition to this, the company says that the main reason for the release of The Last of Us: Remastered is the fact that the majority of PlayStation 4 owners haven't played the game yet, having just joined the PlayStation family for the first time.
This might also be the case with Beyond: Two Souls, although the game is significantly less popular than Naughty Dog's tale of post-apocalyptic woes is.
Quantic Dream did mention a while back that it was working on something for the PlayStation 4, but refrained from mentioning whether it was a new IP or just this remake. However, there's nothing holding the company back from working on both.
The PlayStation 4 remake of the adventure game also surfaced in April, when a few shots of Jodie, the title's protagonist, were spotted on a PlayStation 4 system. In addition to this, NeoGAF also immortalized a few shots from a programmer's portfolio, showing some input code from Beyond for a DualShock 4 controller.
Still, however likely the possibility of Beyond: Two Souls making it over to the PlayStation 4 might be, the information should still be taken with a grain of salt until we get an official confirmation.
