Beyond Two Souls reportedly cost £17m to produce

Quantic Dream's PS3 exclusive releasing in early October

Beyond: Two Souls reportedly cost €20 million (£16.9m / $27m) to produce.

The production cost, which was funded by publisher Sony, was cited by Le Figaro as part of an interview with Quantic Dream founder and game director David Cage.


Touted as a psychological action thriller, the PS3 exclusive title spans 15 years in the life of protagonist Jodie Holmes, played by actress Ellen Page, who has a psychic link to a powerful supernatural entity. Willem Dafoe also stars in a supporting role as scientist Nathan Dawkins, an enigmatic figure working for a government division studying paranormal activities.

The soundtrack was composed by the award-winning Hans Zimmer, whose movie scores include The Lion King, Gladiator, The Dark Knight and Inception.

It was announced in August that Quantic Dream's last game, February 2010's Heavy Rain, had cleared three million sales. Quantic Dream co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere has suggested that the title cost $22 million (€16.3m / £13.7m) to produce, with a further $18 million spent on marketing and distribution. It went on to gross over $100 million for Sony.

The publisher has confirmed a Beyond: Two Souls release date of October 8 in the US and October 11 in the UK.
