'Detroit: Become Human' (ALL) Sales Surpass 5 Million, Boosted By Steam Launch

Set in the near future, Detroit: Become Human takes a look at how humans would react if we were confronted with a new form of intelligence and how androids conceived as machines would be perceived if they started to have emotions.

Detroit: Become Human is a thriller set in Detroit in the near future. Androids have replaced humans in most tasks: babysitters, clerks, gardeners, nurses, teachers and workers. An incident affects the Androids, and some disappear without explanation, while others behave unexpectedly and show signs of emotion. No one knows what's really happening.

Detroit is the story of our world in twenty years, a world where androids that look like humans are treated like objects and have no rights. It is the story of three androids’ struggles: Kara escaping to protect a little girl, Markus fighting to be free, and Connor chasing deviants; three stories that may well determine the future of all androids.

As the player, you will tell these three intertwined stories simultaneously through your actions and decisions. You will be confronted with difficult choices, moral dilemmas, and critical decisions that will shape the destiny of your characters and the future of their world.

Quantic Dream announced that its narrative adventure Detroit: Become Human has surpassed 5 million units in sales across all platforms following the game’s PC launch via Steam.

Detroit: Become Human achieved the worldwide sales milestone exactly one month after Quantic Dream launched three of its games on Steam, which also includes Heavy Rain™ and Beyond: Two Souls™.

Quantic Dream launched Detroit: Community Play alongside Detroit: Become Human™ on Steam, an intuitive Twitch extension that allows streamers and their viewers to collectively make in-game decisions in real-time. The extension pioneers a new form of interactive engagement on Twitch, which has received a substantial amount of positive feedback from fans and has quickly grown in popularity among streamers and their communities. Nearly 500 streamers have already played with the poll-based Twitch overlay which has registered more than 1.5 million votes from viewers to date.

“I could immerse myself in streaming and connect with my audience much better thanks to the Community Play Twitch extension. It was refreshing to play while the audience led me to whole new situations and scenario branches that I would not have discovered playing on my own. The overlay interface fits so well with Detroit’s art direction that some of my viewers thought it was part of the game itself. I had so much fun that I played three more days until reaching the end of the game.“ said Korean streamer Kumikomii.

“Launching Detroit: Become Human™ on Steam has been a delightful experience for us,” said Guillaume de Fondaumière, Co-CEO and Head of Publishing at Quantic Dream. “The response we’re seeing has been incredibly positive, in particular in Asian markets. We are also thrilled by the response garnered by the concomitant release of our Community Play extension for streamers and viewers on Twitch, which elevated a fundamentally single player game into a social experience.”

Your actions will significantly change the story. Choices made as one character may have an impact on the others. You will also need to remember that all three characters can die at any point, which won’t lead to a game over, but allow the story to continue without them…

Detroit offers a very unique experience, something you have never played before. It is a spectacular and unexpected journey full of emotions, twists and turns, dangers and hopes, in the most branching experience ever created by Quantic Dream; where every choice matters.

While playing Detroit, you will not only discover these three characters but many others, and we hope you will remember Connor, Markus, and Kara’s stories for a long time – three androids fighting to become who they are…
