NetEase Acquires Minority Stake In Quantic Dream
Chinese company NetEase has purchased a minority stake in Detroit: Become Human developer Quantic Dreams, infusing it with funds while allowing it to remain independent. Quantic Dreams co-founder David Cage says that the studio plans to make games for multiple platforms from here on out, and not solely for Sony.
Reports of a toxic workplace at Quantic Dream don't seem to have influenced NetEase's decision. Last summer an ex-employee won an employment case against the developer (which is being appealed), and one of the allegations was that lewd and racist photoshopped images of its employees were allowed to be circulated within the company.
