Threeseparate reports have detailed a variety of serious issues within Quantic Dream - the studio behind PlayStation hits such as Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and the upcoming PS4 exclusive, Detroit: Too Human. Allegations such as these can explain numerous criticisms Cage and his direction has received before, and certainly won't be something the studio or its employees will let go lightly.
The accusations came in reports published by Le Monde, the Parisian newspaper of record; Mediapart, an investigative journal founded by a former editor of Le Monde; and Canard PC, a bi-monthly magazine for PC gaming culture and news. Eurogamertranslated and reported on them this morning.
According to the reports, David Cage, the head of Quantic Dream, is noted for his hostile treatment of workers and as a boss who subjects his employees to strenuous working hours and does not accept any opinion, has earned him nicknames such as "Papa", "God" and "Sun King".
Canard PC, another French publication part of the initial reporting, displays several of these images in the header for their piece. In one, Cage's face was placed on that of a male stripper holding a power tool with a sex toy for an attachment.
Le Monde's sources told the paper they warned Cage about the "misogynistic" nature of the scene and that it was likely to cause offence but said he wasn't interested in their feedback or revising anything.
Obviously, I can't speak in-depth to the exact situation with Quantic Dream.
"QD categorically denies the allegations". "This is absolutely false", he told Le Monde. "None of any of this happened at any evening event".
For his part, Cage said the claims are "ridiculous, absurd, and grotesque". This is what Cage had to say, "You want to talk about homophobia?" "I work with Ellen Page, who fights for LGBT rights".
Cage is also accused of inappropriate behaviour around female employees, including crude jokes and inappropriate remarks around female actresses performing in Quantic Dream games. You want to talk about racism? "I work with Jesse Williams, who fights for civil rights in the United States", Cage went on. "Judge my work." Williams is an actor in Detroit: Become Human. He is on the board of directors of The Advancement Project, an advocacy organization devoted to racial justice issues.
A trailer for Cage and Quantic Dream's latest work, Detroit: Become Human, caused controversy a year ago after it aired during Paris Games Week for its seemingly glib approach to the subject of domestic abuse and the way the game appeared to be gamifying serious issues.
What was equally as troubling as the reports themselves was how David Cage responded to them. The report also details that there are assemblies of workers with symbols and Na*i paraphernalia and all the material was shared internally in the couriers of Quantic Dream workers, including Cage and Fondaumière. Large turnover episodes going back to 2015 are said to be symptomatic of a tense and autocratic workplace.
The play he chose was. odd, to say the least. "His toughness is exemplified in all that he does", Quinn said. Get prep sports breaking news alerts from the Gwinnett Daily Post staff delivered to your email.
