Developer Quantic Dream is celebrating its 23rd anniversary this year, marking the event by going independent and tackling self-publishing, which could mean more if its games will make their way to PC.
The studio, known for its interactive, narrative-driven adventure games, spent almost a decade developing PlayStation exclusive titles until last year when it made its return to PC.

Long-time PlayStation exclusives Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls launched on PC alongside Detroit: Become Human as Epic Games Store exclusives.
"This is more than an evolution — it is a transformation. We are doing this to preserve our freedom and our independence, to continue working on innovative and even more ambitious projects, to address greater challenges, and to create the unexpected. Quantic Dream will never be just another studio. We want to face new horizons, to keep our passion alive, and keep trusting in the idea of making games that are different. ", reads a post on the studios' website describing its newfound independence and self-publishing ventures.
In the same post, the developer names the launch of the three games mentioned on PC above among the highlights of the past 23 years.
Prior to striking the publishing deal with Sony, Quantic Dream's first two games, The Nomad Soul and Fahrenheit, also made their way on PC. We're keeping our fingers crossed for that tradition to resume going forward.
