Detroit: Become Human Becomes Quantic Dream’s Fastest-Selling Game

Quantic Dream’s critically acclaimed Detroit: Become Human has sold over two million copies worldwide, Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced.

The adventure title debuted on PlayStation 4 back in May, following on its initial reveal at Sony’s Paris Games Week press conference in 2015.

The Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls developer announced in August that the PS4-exclusive title had surpassed twenty million hours of playtime and had been accessed by more than 1.5 million users worldwide.

David Cage, the writer and director of Detroit, has taken to Twitter to confirm that it has become Quantic Dream’s fastest-selling title in history.

“Thank you to this amazing community for its support and passion,” he tweeted. “You are the reason why we make games.

“Thank you to Bryan Dechart, Valorie Curry, Jesse Williams, Neil Newbon, Matt Vladimery, Audrey Boustani, Dominique Gould and all our very talented cast.

“Thank you to our wonderful composers John Paesano, Nima Fakhrara, Philip Sheppard, who created such a unique soundtrack.

“And, of course, nothing would have been possible without the passion and talent of everyone in the Quantic team. A massive THANK YOU to all the people who contributed to make Detroit a unique experience.”

As part of hitting the milestone, the Quantic Dream founder and studio head has released customized box arts featuring each one of the three main characters: Kara, Connor and Markus.

While the standard Japanese box art features all three characters from the title, the North American and European cover only has Markus on it. The new packshot for Jesse Williams’ character has him in his android form rather than his human appearance.

Hardcore Gamer lauded Quantic Dream’s work on the title.

“The narrative is filled with pressing real-world issues including xenophobia, automation of the workforce, climate change, social media influence and more,” reads an excerpt from our review.

“Though it comes off as heavy-handed at times, Detroit tells an endearing story that verges on the profound, diving deep into the nature of humanity itself.

“It proves that interactivity and focused storytelling aren’t mutually exclusive and that the two can enhance each other given a proper degree of talent behind the scenes.”
