Remember Me Was PS3 Exclusive, Sony Allowed It To Go Multiplat

Capcom’s stunner dubbed Remember was once in Sony’s coffers under the title ‘Adrift’, but Sony wanted a different game, forcing developer Dontnod to find another interested party. That party’s now Capcom, the game’s now Remember Me, and, I believe, Sony’s now in a corner reminiscing about bygones.

“Sony wanted to focus on a different type of game and we don’t really fit with that,” Dontnod co-founder Oskar Guilbert said in an interview with GamesIndustry, “But we’re in a very good relationship with them. They stopped a number of games last year at Sony and we took back the IP rights and were able to continue to develop it thanks to the support of the investors. We were then able to sign the game to a publisher who’s portfolio is a better fit for the game.”

Although concept art of Remember Me was shown at last year’s GamesCom, Guilbert said the title is an all-new experience with a bold new direction, essentially making it a brand new reveal.

We didn’t show the game last year, but we showed concept artwork. This project is not exactly the same, it is an evolution. The concept of what we had with Sony was different.

Remember Me will be released in May 2013 on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

    I was thinking about something the other day and I wonder if game companies ever trade IPs? Kind of like sports where they trade players. Say Sony has this big IP but does not want to continue with it for what ever reason and say Capcom comes along and is like we will take it. Of course Sony does not want to give it away for free and Capcom does not want to pay Sony’s full price. So Capcom says here you can have these 2 downloadable IPs and a small sum of money for your IP. It gets Sony exclusive downloadable games and gets the big IP off their hands and Capcom gets what they want. I have just always wondered this.

    I think it happens. And it seems that’s exactly what happened with Capcom and Sony…Well not exactly but something close.

    rarely would you accept IPs in payment for IPs simply because you have no garuntee it will be worth that amount.
    its like saying to a car dealer look i dont have enough cash to buy the car, but i own enough stock that today is worth more than the car will you accept that.
    they wont, because today it may be worth more.
    but tomorrow?
    and the day after?
    and the day after that?
    ect, ect.
    you need something that is of definite value, not something that could either be worth drastically more, or drastically less!
