Future Heavy Rain DLC Put On Indefinite Hold
Here’s some potential bad news for Heavy Rain fans still eager to learn more about the game’s abundant cast of characters. Speaking to Game Informer at E3 earlier this week, Quantic Dream co-founder Guillame de FondaumiÃ¨re said that future DLC for the game has been put on “indefinite hold,” as Sony instead encouraged the developer to focus on implementing Move controls in the game.
Those Move controls will come as both a free patch for those who already purchased Heavy Rain, and a re-release of the game with the Move controls on-disc. But it looks like additional Heavy Rain DLC may be a casualty of the added controls, as de FondaumiÃ¨re also said to Game Informer that while they may go back to producing more DLC afterward, it’s more likely they’ll just move on to their next project instead.Â
Quantic Dream’s original plan was to release a number of “episodes” for Heavy Rain – calling the whole thing the Heavy Rain Chronicles – with each episode focusing on one of the characters in the game. But it looks like The Taxidermist, released back in April, may end up being the only episode to see release after all. -1up
