David Cage stated that Detroit: Become Human is now closing in on 3 million units sold. Quantic Dream will expand from 200 to 300 developers for the next multi-platform project thanks to the deal made with NetEase.
It's also the studio's biggest commercial success to date. Congrats to QD and well deserved!
Congrats on a job well done!
Even if you don't like Cage's storytelling in Detroit, the game is undoubtedly impressive from a visual and technical standpoint.
Indeed. QD are always raising the bar with photorealistic graphics, and Detroit has some of the best characters models I’ve ever seen in a game. A visual treat for the eyes.
Despite how wonky their titles can be, I've got a soft spot for Quantic Dream. Nice to see. I do think that they'd be better off also making smaller titles to make a more consistent revenue stream if they're going to expand that much.
I should have picked this game up
Yes, yes you should have lol. Joking with ya. Honestly tho, it’s never too late. The game “in my opinion” is their best work to date. And I love Heavy Rain & BEyond two Souls. Definitely worth checking out & giving a try. There’s a demo on the PlayStation store, if your on the dense or haven’t played their previous games.
I sold my ps4 pro last year, but I'll probably pick one up again when last of us 2 releases. I'm hoping the ps5 will release soon, and pick that up instead.
@livingthedream Lol why? Unexpected financial burden? I've been there, but I'd probably cry if I had to sell my PS4, lol.
@bluefox nah, my bros and I mainly play on xbox, so I decided to sell it while i could still make money on it. PS has tons of great games, so I will eventually pick one up again lol, but I'm really hoping the ps5 is announced for a release next year and its backwards compatible, would be a pretty sweet deal if enhanced the games like the X is doing.
I grabbed it on sale a couple weeks back. Only just started it.
Cool. i hope you really enjoy the game!
You could probably get it at a discounted price now.
Oh okay. Well, TLoU2 would definitely get me to buy a PS4 again, if I sold mine.
Detroit, what a thrilling and emotional gaming experience. I look forward to seeing what Quantic Dream does in the future.
NetEase... I guess they'll welcome micro transactions and all that kind of stuff and some cash grab mobile games.
Apparently NetEase is interested in making a MP type game with QD. So yeah, I'd imagine that will happen. I'm wondering how it will fit into QD style of games, or if it will be a different kind of game for them. A persistent story based world would be interesting if done right, but it's also limiting, because people in MP may be at different points in the story, and you don't want to leave people behind within that story, so you see the story progress like you do in most MMO's.
Well, not that bad for that genre. Really wish they would remake Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy but this time with a real ending, not that rushed thing of a story that didn't explain anything and was a joke and the end. The rest of the game (up to the last hour) was really good, but the end …
so... 3 million sold. Studio decides to EXPAND it's workforce, but certain Xbots will have you believe it's a failure because the install base is 95 million PS4's.
Standard salty Xbot NPC decided to show himself. Remove your tongue from Phil's balls and maybe you can taste the greatness of PS4 and it's many amazing exclusives.
Salmonde,salamander or whatever, I have a PS4 and Detroit you idiot and Quantic Dreams won't be exclusive anymore next go around.
They stated they'll still be making exclusives for the PS platform.
Yeah, i'm sure many people will say that. Its really silly. Quantic Dream has done really well, and Detroit's a big success. I am happy to known more gamers will have the option now to experience their games. While I'm curious to see how QD's Next "Next Gen" games will look in the future (with them no longer developing exclusively on the PlayStation platform, where they've been able to create a brand new engine for each one of their last 3 games, and each game has raised the bar for Photo realistic graphics) it'll be interesting. They're a very very talented & passionate team & I believe they'll continue to WOW us gamers. Anxious to see.
Their games are kind of unique in the industry. There will always be a fanbase for them. Detroit was awesome.
It's a great game and the next will be multi plate so Xbox will find out
I don't think that kind of games would click with Xbox players; they are more focused on gameplay rather than story/cinematics. Quantum Break is a recent example.
@Gahl If they liked Alan Wake and Quantum Break, then there is no reason to believe they wouldn't like QD games. Just because the Xbox fan boys on here want to downplay QD games as trash because they release exclusively for Sony, doesn't mean the rest of the user base is as petty.
Not anymore. Because apparently, QD is not going to make multi-plat games, which assumedly will include Xbox. So, their games don't suck anymore apparently. The other article on this topic was quite funny to read. Xbox fan boys were actually gloating about it, and one even said that Sony lost a powerful ally. This expansion though is more because of the NetEase investment. Netease is interested in working with QD to make a MP game, or at least have them help make a MP game. The wording made it seem like NetEase was interested in the tools that QD had to make the games they did, so all the details are still kind of fuzzy. QD was never a failure though. They did surprisingly well for the genre they worked in.
Currently on a pc upgrade binge but this title I will grab hold of soon
Great to see all of their first party studios achieving commercial success, well deserved.
You know Quantic Dream isn't owned by Sony, right?
Now that NetEase owns Quantic Dream, this is the new game design.... Situation A... What would you do? X: Lie. O: Tell him the truth. [.] : Punch him in the face ($1.99)
NetEase has a minority share. They don't own QD. I believe Sony has a minority share as well.
Congrats on having your next game luanching on Xbox One!
Some kids need to stop playing Nintendo games. They are losing their sanity.
Figured Sony wouldn't pick them up.
Talented studio loved Heavy Rain
Detroit is a great game! I love that parts of the story changes, each time you play it.
