PS4's Detroit: Become Human Release Date Confirmed

Are you looking forward to Detroit: Become Human?

56 Comments

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. For more, check out some Detroit: Become Human gameplay or our thoughts on how a preview build attempted to tackle some difficult issues.

I hope they figured out controls. Most of their games are a complete clunk-fest with upside down controls.

Meh, game doesn't interest me. At. All. If I wanted to watch a movie, I'd watch the late Robin Williams Bicentennial man or the anime plastic memories. .

'Ooooh look at the shiny graphic ma, it's all we got'. As for the subject matter, it isn't new - as mentioned above, subject matters are handled in the two aforementioned. But course the Sony Dronies would like to be the "edge lords" ... not that you lot are, well have at it being for twits though.

Pre-order cancelled.

Again, another game I'm interested in but no PC version.

Hey Quantic Dream, did you forget what platform you started on?

@ECH71: A little slow there obviously they’ve been making their games Exclusive on PlayStation.

@Eddie619: QD are NOT owned by Sony. They are 2nd party, they can put their games on to PC if they wanted to.

Meh. David Cage hasn't made a good game since Heavy Rain. Get God of War instead.

@Chizaqui: He also made more games.

But if we limit it to just two, 50/50 ain't a great probability to back.

@xenomorphalien: I see, I didn't realize he made more outside of QD (I quite like their games.) But I think it's something to be said bringing new IP to the market, whether it's good or bad. It's better than the ho-hum schlock of most AAA devs riddled with MXTs anyway.

edit: But let me be honest, I'll be getting both this and GoW and expecting to have a great time with both.

@customx5: There's a commentator who goes by the name of onehitta323.. guess what he preaches, it's okay for him and his cronies to give out their OP on Xboxes and their games. But he oh so hates it when others give their OP on PS & PS games.

To address what you're saying to the commentator. It's his first impression. If he isn't impressed by what is shown, he has every right to express an OP on it. It's within reason. Commentator isn't bashing the game (unlike one user) so there shouldn't be any hostilities thrown at him. You like it, that's perfectly fine. I'm not impressed by it personally, that shouldn't deter you from liking it in any shape of form.

@Eddie619: Or maybe it's because of the reality.

But lemme guess, it's mostly because I'm critical of a PS game right? Can't have that to you.

@xenomorphalien: And you know for sure this game isn't good..? Looks great from the trailers and E3 gameplay. David cage has made one game after heavy rain which was beyond two souls. I guess one bad game and he's lost all credibility, right?

Quantic dream, Naughty dog and Rockstar are the only companies imo that truly deliver masterpieces.

@davillain-: No he's right, it's BS. Unless you think CDPR, Hideo, Nintendo, Yoko Taro can't do it. What about Guerrilla games? Or Atlus? or Larian? I rest my case.

Nice. This and GOW are more my style in terms of what I feel would give PS4 a fantastic 2018.

One of the few games I'm willing to pre-order this year finally has a release date. So looking forward to this; and it's a very good thing it'll land a month after God of War launches. Hopefully the other game I have in my cross hairs, Code Vein, launches a month after Detroit too.

This is gonna be a day one purchase for me, the first since GTA V...but maybe not the last this year, what with GoW also releasing. If RDR2 strays away from intrusive micro transactions, that could be another day one...heck I havent even bought Crash or SOTC yet. Damn 2018 is Sony's year.

Great news! I remember playing Indigo Prophecy back in 2005 and that blew me away how you could make choices. I loved Quantic Dreams work since then.

Oh Man, I'm ready for the Two Best Friends Let's Play of this game! If it's like all the other David Cage games, then it's gonna be another convoluted shitshow that is going to be ridiculously hard to follow.

@philip6k: exactly. People bash quantum dreams too much in my opinion. I loved heavy rain and beyond two souls.

besides naughty dog, no other developer can touch quantic dream when it comes to character models (except maybe kojima productions with death stranding :D)... this game looks incredible graphically. the number of player choices sounds staggering as well -- this might be the adventure game everyone has dreamed of but never thought would be possible. even beyond two souls and heavy rain had many different outcomes and conclusions in their own right, but detroit looks to be taking that to an extreme. tell tale games are a joke compared to this...

@Xristophoros: As for character models, what about the Until Dawn devs? They look astounding. Then there's Lara Croft of course, and though I don't like the direction the games have taken, you can't deny they look real purdy.

@good_coop89: until dawn had pretty good models, but not quite at this level... particularly with the animations which were a bit jenky and abrupt at times. i just finished rise of the tomb raider not too long ago and while she looks quite good compared to the previous game -- her hair also animates beautifully now -- there is no comparison to what i am seeing with detroit or uncharted/last of us (even last of us on ps3 is more impressive).

@good_coop89: Supermassive Games have mostly been making smaller projects and VR games since Until Dawn. Until Dawn Rush Of Blood, Hidden Agenda, The Inpatient and Bravo Team. I hope they work on a sequel for Until Dawn or something bigger in scale after Bravo Team which is releasing this month but I think these smaller titles are doing well. Haven't really been making anything that looks quite as good as Until Dawn.
