Quantic Dream says the game is "just not ready. It's simmering."
Lisa Pendse, Vice President of Marketing for Quantic Dream, commented on the development of Eclipse, which was announced in 2021, saying the project is still happening.
She said the game is not dead and the project is not canceled. The studio is working on it, although it is not progressing very quickly. She did not specify whether the team had encountered any specific difficulties.
"Can I say it still exists? Because it exists,” Pendse said. "It's just not ready. It's simmering."
Pendse did not share any details about the plot or gameplay of the upcoming game, but she emphasized once again that it will be a full-fledged adventure action game. The team plans to mix the thrill of big-budget action games with the multilayered narrative style seen in their previous games like Detroit and Heavy Rain.
The representative said the project will have no "game over" screen, and the progression of events will largely depend on the player's actions.
"One of the big focuses we've had when we announced Star Wars Eclipse was to make sure it was clear that this is actually an action-adventure game that has all of the elements that you would come to expect and want from a Quantic Dream title, which is intricately branching narratives, multiple playable characters," Pendse added. "There's no game over. Anyone can die, anything can happen and the story sort of continues so that those signatures are still there. But what we've been doing is even more ramping up our expertise in the gameplay arena."
Pendse claims that the company is striving to do everything properly and is not rushing the release. She mentioned that this opportunity arose thanks to the deal with NetEase, which has owned the French studio since 2022.
"One of the amazing things about working with NetEase is that they're not imposing release dates on us,” said the representative. "Quantic Dream has always released games when they’re ready and I think the high level of quality that you get when you buy a Quantic Dream game is a testament to the value of that approach."
