Forums - Sony Discussion - PS4: Detroit: Become Human Sells 1 Million In 2 Weeks

Just for perspective, it took Heavy Rain 5 weeks to reach 1m.

Quantic Dream enjoys its best start

The game Detroit: Become Human has already attracted 1 million buyers, according to the French studio. It was developed in four years, in Paris.

Quantic Dream prides itself on never following up on its video games and preferring to create totally new worlds. On the other hand, their successes have an air of déjà-vu. "We have just passed the million mark sold for Detroit: Become Human, two weeks after the release of the game, said Guillaume de Fondaumiere, the deputy CEO of the French independent studio. This is clearly our best start. The previous title of this flagship of narrative video games, Heavy Rain, in 2014, took five weeks to break the milestone of one million copies. In total, it attracted 5.5 million players.

Only available on Playstation 4, the commercial performance of the game must be compared with other titles reserved for the Japanese console. In this category, Quantic's game does not compete with the recent God of War by Santa Monica studio and its 3.1 million sales in three days. But the multiple-ending scenario imagined by Quantic Dream founder and creative star David Cage is also more demanding.

Good news. It certainly isn't mind blowing but these types of games have much smaller appeal. I will pick it up once I finish a few more backlog items

But how many people have played it? 😉 😉

Please Watch/Share this video so it gets shown in Hollywood.

Great sales. While this isn't a blockbuster like GoW or Horizon it's still a great number for a new IP and this type of game. Hopefully sales continue to be strong. Very glad this is a success. I'll be getting this later on when the price drops.

1 million is very solid. After I was extremely disappointed by Beyond 2 Souls I'm glad to see Detroit find more success since I think it's the best Quantic Dream game yet.

Its well deserved, its a very entertaining game for ppl who like this genre. If you don't like this genre plz refrain from commenting with the usual ït has no gameplay", "it si a movie" we whoa re playing the game know those things, we like the interactive storytelling thats it.

good number for this game, and i think it could reach 1.5 by the end of the year

Not to shabby... they didn't need to excuse from not selling like GoW or patting themselves and David Cage in the back.

And as always, appreciate clear sales communication.

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

Pretty good numbers. Didn’t expect such a game to do these numbers. Especially since everybody and dey mama bought God Of War.


A mouse & keyboard are made for sending email and typing internet badassery. Not for playing video games!!!

Most important would the comparaison between week 1/week 2 sales.

Wanna see how much legs the game will have.
