Detroit: Become Human, the cinematic adventure game from developer Quantic Dream, has reached a new sales milestone, selling over 8 million copies worldwide. A recent press release from the studio confirms that the game has now sold more than 2.5 million copies on PC, bringing its total to 8 million when taking console sales into account as well.
Quantic Dream may have its hands tied with the shaky development of Star Wars Eclipse right now, but its 2018 title Detroit: Become Human seems to be bringing in a good amount of sales overall. It seems like players are drawn to the game’s cinematic decision-making charm, bolstered by strong performances from a number of big actors including Valorie Curry as Kara, Bryan Dechart as Connor and Jesse Williams as Markus.
Detroit: Become Human was first released on PS4 in May 2018 as a timed exclusive before making its way to PC (via Steam) in December 2019. Since then, the game has sold quite well on PC bringing its overall sales up to 8 million. It’s an impressive number for an original IP, though it doesn’t seem like it will be receiving a sequel anytime soon.
The official website for the game provides a detailed description:
“Detroit 2038. Technology has evolved to a point where human like androids are everywhere. They speak, move and behave like human beings, but they are only machines serving humans. Play three distinct androids and see a world at the brink of chaos – perhaps our future – through their eyes. Your very decisions will dramatically alter how the game’s intense, branching narrative plays out. You will face moral dilemmas and decide who lives or dies. With thousands of choices and dozens of possible endings, how will you affect the future of Detroit and humanity’s destiny?”
Detroit: Become Human is currently available for PS4 and PC.
