Quantic Dream announced that Detroit: Become Human has surpassed 5 million units in sales across all platforms. This comes one month after the game’s release on Steam.
Quantic Dream launched Detroit: Community Play alongside Detroit: Become Human on Steam. Detroit: Community Play is an intuitive Twitch extension that allows streamers and their viewers to collectively make in-game decisions in real-time. The extension pioneers a new form of interactive engagement on Twitch, which has received a substantial amount of positive feedback from fans and has quickly grown in popularity among streamers and their communities. Nearly 500 streamers have already played with the poll-based Twitch overlay which has registered more than 1.5 million votes.
Guillaume de Fondaumière, Co-CEO and Head of Publishing at Quantic Dream, said:
“Launching Detroit: Become Human on Steam has been a delightful experience for us. The response we’re seeing has been incredibly positive, in particular in Asian markets. We are also thrilled by the response garnered by the concomitant release of our Community Play extension for streamers and viewers on Twitch, which elevated a fundamentally single player game into a social experience.”
Contrary to Death Stranding, Detroit: Become Human has optimization issues on the PC. Moreover, the game used the Denuvo anti-tamper tech and came out first on Epic Games Store. However, Quantic Dream removed Denuvo when the game came out on Steam.
