Heavy Rain DLC On Indefinite Hold

Remember that Heavy Rain DLC? Well, if you've been waiting for news about the upcoming second chapter in the episodic Heavy Rain Chronicles, you may want to brace yourself for some bad news.

While checking out the Move version of Heavy Rain at Sony's booth, I had the chance to chat a bit with Quantic Dream's Guillame de Fondaumière, who had some interesting things to say about integrating Move controls (which you can read about here). However, among all the cool tidbits, there was the disappointing revelation that the Heavy Rain Chronicles DLC plans have been put on indefinite hold.

The first episode, entitled The Taxidermist, was given away to gamers who purchased the game new, though it was released for purchase later. The fate of the second announced episode, which was supposed to have featured the Origami Killer as the playable character, is now in doubt. According to de Fondaumière, Sony encouraged Quantic Dream to focus its efforts on the Move version of Heavy Rain instead of the DLC.

While the DLC could potentially continue once Move has launched, de Fondaumière indicated that it is more likely that the studio will go forward with its next project -- which he, of course, wouldn't say a word about.
