David Cage is actually a pseudonym because the game developer’s real name is actually David De Gruttola. Anyway, he was born on June 9th, 1969 in Mulhouse, France. Before making very great video games, the man was a freelance music composer taking part in a variety of projects in his early years. One of the most famous things he scored was for the video game called Timecop back in 1995. He scored many other video games, although his mark on the industry did not become famous until after he decided to make his own video game projects.
Once he founded his own studio called Quantic Dream, he developed his first video game for the PC and Dreamcast called Omikron: The Nomad Soul. This was an enjoyable action adventure video game, although it did not get as much recognition as his future projects. After that, he went on to direct Fahrenheit (or Indigo Prophecy in North America) which was a cinematic interactive drama action-adventure video game released back in the PS2/Xbox era. The game received good reviews, but five years later he would be responsible for his best game yet.
After the release of Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy, he released arguably his best ever game to date as Quantic Dream released the very enjoyable Heavy Rain for the PlayStation 3 console in 2010. This game is an interactive movie putting the player inside the shoes of four different characters as they try and solve a series of murders. The game was a huge success as it was his best selling game to date. The game was so successful, it it managed to win three awards at the BAFTA Interactive Entertainment Awards.
The game had some controversy as some people called it sexist and racist among other things. Controversy will still follow David Cage when releasing Detroit: Become Human eight years later as the game features some domestic violence scenes.
After Heavy Rain, Quantic Dream and David Cage got more money recruiting Hollywood actors for their next game called Beyond: Two Souls in 2013. The recognizable names in the game included the likes of Ellen Page and Willem Defoe. While the game was not as well received as Heavy Rain, it was still a huge success for Sony and its PlayStation 3 brand.
2018 will become another huge year for David Cage as Quantic Dream released Detroit: Become Human which is the biggest game they have released to date. Cage wrote over 2000 pages for the script for the game. This is all thanks to the fact that it has a non linear structure as players are able to choose their own outcomes for the story. The game is already a top seller so Cage is sure to be a rich man for the years to come.
In all, we estimate David Cage net worth in 2018 at $5 million.
