Total sales for Detroit: Become Human have surpassed five million units across all platforms, developer Quantic Dream announced. The milestone was achieved exactly one month following the game’s Steam launch.
Detroit: Become Human first launched for PlayStation 4 in May 2018, followed by PC via the Epic Games Store in December 2019 and Steam on June 18, 2020.
Alongside the launch of the Steam version in June, Quantic Dream launched “Detroit: Community Play,” a Twitch extension that allows streamers and viewers to collectively make in-game decisions in real-time. Nearly 500 streamers have already played with the extension and have registered more than 1.5 million votes from viewers to date.
“Launching Detroit: Become Human on Steam has been a delightful experience for us,” said Quantic Dream co-CEO and head of publishing Guillaume de Fondaumiere in a press release. “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.”
