2009 crowd’s too heavy for Heavy Rain release

The highly anticipated Playstation 3 exclusive Heavy Rain won’t be flooding store shelves this year. In an interview with GI, Quantic Dream’s co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere made it clear that around Christmas is not the best time to release an IP, he said:

"Also, purely from my perspective, most publishers today realise that it's not ideal to release a new IP or a new genre just before Christmas. It's a very crowded place to be, and certain games need more space to live their life. Everybody at working on the project, both at Quantic and Sony, believe this is the right time."

Heavy Rain to me is shaping up to be a Genre defining experience and the team at Quantic Dream has shown their dedication in making the game a masterpiece. Here’s for hoping all expectations are met. He also goes on to say they delivered the alpha of the game on April 15 - on time and on budget so they’re a pretty happy bunch.

Heavy Rain is set to release exclusively for the PS3 and we here at will surely keep you updated with the latest breaking news concerning the new IP, (that’s what we do here my friends).
