David Cage and Quantic Dream had a vision for Heavy Rain that was to be fleshed out with downloadable content. The Chronicles content was supposed to provide hour long back stories on all the main characters, but since Sony wanted the studio to work on Move support for Heavy Rain, the DLC was put on hold.

According to an interview with NowGamer, Cage said he is upset that players will not get a chance to see the finished game.

“Chronicles are on hold as all the team is focused on Heavy Rain Move,” he said. “We proposed three episodes about one hour long and being focused on the background of the main characters. I thought fans would really enjoy these episodes because they explained many aspects of Heavy Rain and why characters are who they are.

“Unfortunately, Sony preferred to ask us to focus on Move to support the device rather than on creating new content.

“On our side, we did not want to spend more time on HR, which would have meant delaying new projects. This is a decision I can understand, and I am certainly happy we had the opportunity to play with this device and to support it, although I am certainly disappointed for fans we could not finish the story of Heavy Rain the way we intended.”

Below is a trailer for Heavy Rain with Move support. Look for more details soon on when the game will get Move support.
