Sony has revealed Detroit: Become Human's release date for PlayStation 4. The narrative game, developed by Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls studio Quantic Dream, will launch worldwide on May 25 this year.
This is the first time Sony has mentioned a release date for the game; the company had previously stated "spring 2018," and before that, David Cage had only said "2018." Some people believed the game would launch last year after a PlayStation sizzle reel listed it as part of the platform's 2017 releases. However, Sony's president of Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida, later stated the listing was a mistake.
Detroit has been no stranger to controversy throughout its development. The game touches on real-world issues such as terrorism and domestic abuse, and its developer, Quantic Dream, recently denied allegations of a poor studio culture and harassment.
The game itself tells the story of a group of androids coming to terms with their newfound sentience. You control three separate characters and can guide them in their journey by making decisions along the way, in a similar way to some of Quantic Dream's previous games.
