In a delightful interview
with GI.Biz, Quadric Dream co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere talks a bit of shop about the development of Heavy Rain
. He covers some cool things like how the company outsourced nearly 500 man months of development work, how the project is running according to plan and most importantly that the game is going to be released in early 2010. While I get that they are trying to avoid the holiday crush it seems like the early part of 2010 is getting flooded with games (God of War III, Alan Wake
, Mass Effect 2
to name a few). I'm not complaining too much yet but it seems like the industry may have another situation to plan around early next year.
