'Detroit: Become Human' Keeps Selling, Reaches 8 Million Sales Worldwide

by Rainier on Jan. 18, 2023 @ 8:41 a.m. PST

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 is proud to announce the enduring success of its video game Detroit: Become Human, which has surpassed the milestone of more than 2.5 million units sold on PC, accumulating over 8 million copies sold worldwide across all platforms (excluding copies obtained with subscription services.)

This new milestone is part of the ongoing success of its three flagship video games available on PC since 2019: Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human.

"2022 was remarkable for Quantic Dream. We achieved a significant increase in sales of our three historical PC games compared to 2021, an unusual phenomenon which builds on the already excellent sales results recorded in the previous three years," said Guillaume de Fondaumière, Co-CEO of Quantic Dream. "The continued success of Detroit: Become Human, but also of Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, is due to the quality of these titles, their enduring appeal to PC gamers, as well as the thorough and long-term work of our Publishing team. We are delighted to introduce our works to an ever wider and younger audience, and on all continents. At the end of 2022, we also saw a record level of ’wishlisting’ on these three titles, which gives us hope for an equally exceptional 2023.”

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…

Key Features:

  • PLAY YOUR PART IN A GRIPPING NARRATIVE: Enter a world where moral dilemmas and difficult decisions can turn android slaves into world-changing revolutionaries. Discover what it means to be human from the perspective of an outsider – and see the world through the eyes of a machine.
  • THEIR LIVES, YOUR CHOICES: Shape an ambitious branching narrative, where your decisions not only determine the fate of the three main characters, but that of the entire city of Detroit.

  • COUNTLESS PATHS, COUNTLESS ENDINGS: Every decision you make, no matter how minute, affects the outcome of the story. No playthrough will be exactly the same: replay again and again to discover a totally different conclusion.
