gamesindustry.biz is reporting that Heavy Rain, exceeding all expectations, has hit the 1 million mark. This quote comes from Quantic Dream co-founder David Cage.
“We have sold more than 1 million copies of Heavy Rain worldwide,” said Cage. “That was a surprise to many … we estimate that by the end of the year, we will have sold 1.5 million copies, and are very pleased with the reception.”
“Our game isn’t an action game, it’s not a role-playing game, [and] it’s not an adventure. It isn’t in any one genre. When you create a new, convention-busting game to the market, it’s always a risk, both for the developer and the publisher,” he added.
I’d probably argue with Cage that the game is actually in the adventure genre, but that’s kind of a moot point. Hitting the 1 million mark should make everyone at Quantic Dream (and Sony) happy.
