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.
