Quantic Dream founder David Cage is set to receive the French la Légion d’honneur (Legion of Honour) award in a ceremony on March 13, being granted the prestigious award that is the highest decoration of France. Cage will join such notables as Jean Cocteau and Sean Connery in the Legion’s hallowed ranks.
The honour will be presented to Cage by Fleur Pellerin, France’s Minister Delegate for SMEs, Innovation and the Digital Economy. This is an interesting thing if for no other reason than to see a nation recognizing the artistic contributions of a developer. Cage, a native of France, will be the first game developer to receive the award.
