Senior Writer - Action/Adventure


Quantic Dream, the world-renowned studio behind successes like Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human, is looking for talented collaborators to join us on our next ambitious projects.

Quantic Dream continues to be an industry-leader in Interactive Drama, with a special focus on narrative. We are looking for a passionate, experienced writer to help take us to the next level. 

As a Senior Writer, you will share responsibility for developing the over-arching narrative of a Triple-AAA experience, from devising themes and character arcs to fleshing out specific scenes and dialogues. Interactivity is critical to our design philosophy, but candidates from non-interactive industries who are excited to learn the craft are invited to apply.

As a Senior Writer at Quantic Dream, you will join the Game Director, Associate Game Director, Lead Writer and other senior narrative team members in our writing room. You will also help to supervise and mentor more junior members of the writing team.


Key skills and experience:

·         5+ years’ experience writing for TV, Cinema, Videogames or equivalent industries

·         Expertise in generating fresh ideas and original narratives

·         Enthusiasm for collaborating in writing rooms/narrative teams

·         Genuine passion for the craft, with an authentic and personal voice

·         Deep knowledge of Quantic Dream titles and videogames generally

·         Good managing and mentoring skills


Interested candidates are invited to submit a CV and writing sample that best reflects their personal passion.


QUANTIC DREAM was founded in 1997 by David Cage. Today co-managed by David Cage and Guillaume de Fondaumière, our studio has gained over the years international recognition for its contribution to interactive narration and its fresh thinking on emotion in games.

We are also considered to be one of the leading motion capture studios, especially for the creation of real-time 3D Virtual Actors performing with stunning realism.

Over the last twenty one years we have developed proprietary engines and technologies, including some very advanced tools and a unique approach to the production pipeline.

As a game development studio, we collaborated in the past with major publishers including Eidos, Vivendi Universal Games, Microsoft Games Studios, Atari and Sony Computer Entertainment. We created the games OMIKRON THE NOMAD SOUL featuring recording artist David Bowie and FAHRENHEIT INDIGO PROPHECY.

Since 2006, we have developed the three award-winning and multimillion selling Playstation titles HEAVY RAIN (PS3/PS4), BEYOND: TWO SOULS (PS3/PS4) and DETROIT: BECOME HUMAN (PS4).

Detroit: Become Human, which released on May 25th 2018 on PLAYSTATION 4, is Quantic Dream’s fastest selling title to date, having sold in excess of 1 million units in its first two weeks on shelves. Heavy Rain, which released in February 2010 and won three BAFTA and DICE awards, remains our bestselling title so far, with combined sales of over 5 million units worldwide on PS3 and PS4.

We are currently working on several unannounced titles.
