LOS ANGELES--A Heavy Rain follow-up called Beyond will be unveiled during Sony's 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo press briefing this evening in Los Angeles, MCV reports today. The site's mystery "publishing sources" indicate the game--to be revealed by Quantic Dream boss David Cage--will be narrative-focused, feature motion controls, and be exclusive to the PlayStation.

Quantic Dream is going Beyond for its next project.

Separately, CVG cites sources today indicating that Beyond will feature Hollywood voice talent in the form of "a well-known actor and actress." More specifics were not mentioned. For 2010's Heavy Rain, Quantic Dream hired on English actor Pascal Langdale (The Phantom of the Opera), whose voice and likeness were used for main character Ethan Mars.

GameSpot will have a liveblog of Sony's E3 2012 media briefing and will also stream the event beginning this evening at 6 p.m. PDT.

Last month, it was reported that Cage would reveal Quantic Dream's new project at Sony's E3 2012 media briefing, but did not have any details on the name of the game. For more on Quantic Dream's latest body of work, check out GameSpot's review of Heavy Rain.
