The Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls developer is currently seeking a lead online programmer (via Superannuation) with a "strong understanding" of the multiplayer genre. An ideal candidate would also have a "very deep and high knowledge" of online gaming and network development.

Quantic Dream boss David Cage said in an interview in 2010 that he would like to develop an online title sometime down the road.

"There are also many interesting changes awaiting us regarding the online space," he said at the time. "So this is something we are going to explore in the very near future."

Quantic Dream has not announced any kind of multiplayer component for Beyond: Two Souls.

Cage previously revealed that he has his next three games already planned out, one of which is an "incredibly exciting" project for the PlayStation 4. "It's one of the strongest concepts we've had at Quantic Dream and we're really excited about it," Cage said last month.

Cage also showed off a PS4 demo during the console's announcement in February. Video of the presentation is embedded below.
