Heavy Rain hasn’t aged especially well, but the game was ground-breaking when it first released in 2010, delivering a grounded interactive adventure that would go on to influence the likes of Telltale and beyond. And Parisian developer Quantic Dream has announced that as of 31st March, the release has sold in excess of 4.5 million units globally across both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

When you consider the type of game it is, that’s an extraordinary achievement, and it proves that there is a market for titles where you don’t necessarily just fire guns, drive cars, or perform a mixture of both. The developer is, of course, currently working on Detroit: Become Human, and it’ll be hoping that it’s tale of artificial intelligence achieves similar success.
