The two French studio heads behind supernatural adventure Beyond: Two Souls face accusations of inappropriate behaviour towards staff
French video game studio Quantic Dream has been accused of propagating a toxic working environment, according to reports in three French news publications.
Quantic Dream is one of France’s best-known and most successful development studios. Its mature-themed cinematic games, including psychological horror title Heavy Rain and supernatural adventure Beyond: Two Souls, have sold in their millions. But stories published by Le Monde, investigative site Mediapart and gaming site Canard PC allege that the company’s success hides a “a toxic corporate culture” where inappropriate language and behaviour is routine and employees face overwhelming workloads.
