Detroit: Become Human got a generally strong reception from critics, but the feedback from fans has been overwhelmingly positive thus far. And it sounds like Quantic Dream’s sci-fi opus has been a hit commercially as well, as bigwig Guillaume de Fondaumière has tweeted that the title is the French studio's “most successful release so far […] by all accounts”.
Exactly what metric the executive is using is unclear, but the game topped the UK sales charts – despite failing to outperform Heavy Rain’s launch total. Of course, a lot has changed since 2010 – it wasn’t even possible to purchase Heavy Rain digitally until its PlayStation 4 re-release a few years ago.
While we did have a few issues with Detroit: Become Human’s narrative, we liked the experience a lot overall, and we’re confident calling it Quantic Dream’s best game now that the dust has settled. Are you happy to see that the title’s been successful? Are you hoping Sony continues its partnership with the studio? Let us know in the comments section below.
