The new studio Interior Night, made up of former Quantic Dream developers, has signed a deal with Sega for their first title’s publication.
Announced earlier today, the deal offers Interior Night serious backing for its premiere title, which they have revealed is a narrative driven IP. While little else is known about the game at this time, the studio was founded by former Quantic Dream lead Caroline Marchal and has recruited talent from past projects such as Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and Wonderbook: Book of Spells.
“We are very excited to work with Sega on our first narrative game,” Marchal said to Gematsu in an official statement regarding the announcement. “Sega have demonstrated a strong desire to take risks, innovate and work collaboratively with studios. With their help and support, we’re confident Interior Night can deliver a great narrative experience to existing gamers and to a broader audience.”
Sega also released a statement on the deal, showing a similar eagerness toward the new endeavor.
“Signing this deal with Interior Night is another great step for Sega in terms of working with talented studios whether they’re established or embarking on a new journey whilst exploring our desire to launch new franchises and experiences,” John Clark, executive vice president of publishing at Sega Europe, said. “We’re really looking forward to working with Interior Night as their combined talents and imaginations evolve into a really strong narrative driven gaming experience.”
First revealed in November of 2017, Interior Night is touted as a studio dedicated to narrative and story driven games which can be enjoyed by adults, listing TV shows like Breaking Bad, True Detective and Fargo as parallels to their intended projects. According to the studio’s official website, more information on their first game will be revealed in the near future.
