There was no date at the end of Detroit: Become Human’s gameplay demo at E3 2017, but the title is slated for release next year. Speaking with GameSpot, auteur David Cage revealed: “It’ll be next year.” Sony’s being a bit weird with dates: it confirmed any titles with a 2018 target during its press conference are due in the first half of the year, while it would appear those without are looking towards Holiday 2018. Of course it’s not announcing any of this because it doesn’t want to disappoint.
Even as huge Quantic Dreams fans, we’re still not sold on Detroit: Become Human to be brutally honest. The idea of android apartheids has been explored a million times before, and while we do enjoy the Parisian developer’s take on choice-driven narratives, the jury’s still out on this one for us.
