Heavy Rain made how much?

Heavy Rain G3AR

Many still regard Heavy Rain as one of the best titles of this generation. Looking at the game’s profit margin this is somewhat of an understatement. The games developer, Quantic Dream, spent a cool $21.8 million to develop the title. Add Sony’s marketing budget to the production costs and we’re looking at an estimated total of over $50 million spent.

To date, Heavy Rain has made Sony more than $130.6 million. A worthwhile profit indeed.

Beyond: Two Souls, also developed by Quantic Dream, is due for release on the 8th of October this year. In addition Quantic Dream is currently working on a PS4 title speculated to be available for the console’s launch.

    Brilliant game,I’ve finished it multiple times but I think it’s time I dust off my copy and fire it up again. I can’t wait for the other 2 projects they are working on. Beyond : Two Souls looks amazing!!!

    Heavy Rain, to date, is still my best gaming experience of all time. It was one amazing story to play through from start to end. Absolutely cannot wait for Beyond: Two Souls.

    No one expected Shelby to be the Origami killer and i bet you Beyond will give us that same moment which we will never expect.
