Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, Detroit: Become Human Coming to PC

Quantic Dream today announced at the Game Developers Conference that its past three titles — Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human — are no longer PlayStation exclusives and will be coming to PC.

According to the French studio, the three titles will arrive on the Epic Games Store at some point in 2019.

Earlier in the day, Quantic Dream founder David Cage said on Twitter that the developer had some “exciting news” to share at GDC.

Following on from the announcement, the Heavy Rain, Beyond and Detroit writer and director shared his excitement about bringing all three titles to PC.

“Proud to announce that Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human will all be available on PC this year exclusively on Epic Store,” he tweeted.

“No need to own a PlayStation anymore to play Quantic Dream games. Anyone with a PC will be able to meet Ethan Mars, Jodie Holmes and Connor.”

Quantic Dream co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumière also expressed his enthusiasm on the announcement, saying that it was the next step forward for the studio.

“David Cage and I have planned the next evolution of Quantic Dream very carefully,” he told the Verge.

“The move to PC constitutes our studio’s first effort to develop non-PlayStation exclusive games in over thirteen years, but also an opportunity to gradually engage the team on multiple projects at the same time.

“The most important evolution for Quantic Dream, however, is that we are no longer a developer working with a publisher.

“Starting with the PC versions of Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human, we will be self-publishing all our titles.”

It follows on from NetEase’s investment into Quantic Dream earlier this year, meaning that the studio would be able to produce titles not exclusive to PlayStation 4.

The critically acclaimed Heavy Rain was initially released on PlayStation 3 in 2010, which was followed by a release on PS4 in 2016.

Like Heavy Rain, Beyond arrived first on PS3 in 2013 before it made its way to Sony’s current platform. Detroit, on the other hand, was released on PS4 last year.
