Detroit: Become Human Launches May 25

Quantic Dream's most ambitious project yet gets a release date.

David Cage's Avatar Posted by Director, Quantic Dream

We are proud to announce that Detroit: Become Human now has an official release date: on May 25th, you will finally have the chance to get your hands on Quantic Dream’s most ambitious title to date.

In a dystopian vision of our near future, Detroit is the story of three androids, three machines designed to obey, who start to feel emotions. Confronted with persecution and the violence of society, they will all have to decide who they want to be.

Connor is a prototype designed to help human investigators on cases involving androids; Kara becomes a fugitive by empathizing with a little girl, united in their dream of freedom; Markus will become the leader of the android revolution.

The player will control all three in turn, taking control of their destinies, and telling not only their individual stories, but also the story of their people and of their world.

Detroit: Become Human

Detroit is by far the most ambitious title ever created by Quantic Dream; with this game, we wanted to push our limits by creating the most bending game we have ever made. Your actions have real and spectacular consequences: there are entire scenes that you can see or miss based on your actions, your closest allies may help you until the end or die just after you meet them, your destiny itself can be totally different depending on your choices. You must also be very careful with your three main characters, because any of them may die at any time.

Each story is almost as unique as your DNA: it is the result of the choices you made, the minor ones and the important ones, because in Detroit, all choices matter. You will need to observe, think, decide, feel, follow your intuition or your heart, to tell the unique stories of each character, and their stories will become your personal story.

Detroit explores many complex themes that resonate with today’s world. Of course, it is about AI and the role of technology, but it is also more than anything about us, about our society, our dreams, our mistakes, our hopes. It is about what it means to be human: is it just about having flesh and bones, or does it mean more than that? We hope that it sparks some meaningful conversations and we’re looking forward to hearing what you think about it.

In order to depict the world of Detroit, we have also developed the most spectacular 3D engine we have ever created. We tried to push the limits of the PS4 as far as we could, with hundreds of highly realistic characters, full performance capture, scenes featuring crowds, all with a level of quality that we had never reached before. We have also imagined a new way of playing a story where you are in direct control of a complex story where any of your choices may have consequences.

With Detroit, Quantic Dream presents its most accomplished experience, a spectacular and unexpected journey full of emotions, twists and turns, dangers and hope, in the most bending story we have ever created – where every choice matters.

We hope you see Detroit as a unique experience that echoes some of the challenges our world faces, and maybe it even resonates with your own personal life. More than anything, we hope that Detroit will leave an impression on you, and that you will remember for a long time the story of these three androids who wanted to be free…

Gives me plenty of time to finish God of War then on to this one. Been waiting a long time for this one.

This game looks gorgeous. I hope to see a sale on Heavy Rain/Beyond (PS4) on PSN soon now. Still need to scoop those versions up.

    jonathan3579 said:

    March 1st, 10:55 am

    I’d recommend importing the 2 pack disc set. I did and have absolutely no regrets! (I’m not really the digital purchase type.)

    Potter13579 said:

    March 1st, 7:53 pm

    Download Indigo Prophecy while you’re at it.

    MLTizzy said:

    March 2nd, 11:27 pm

    Yeah I also have the Heavy Rain/Beyond Two Souls disc as well via amazon, but I’m an old school hard copy kind of guy. But yeah I’m waiting for the Indigo Prophecy PS2 Classic to go on sale, its been on my wishlist forever now. I do have it on my old XBox, bought the game for $20 on amazon couple years ago, but I’d love to play it on PS4!

I hope we get another first print edition like we got for the PS3 version of Beyond Two Souls!

No Collectors or Special edition?

I have a request to make if possible, would it be possible to add an option to remove or replace the motion controls in the game? As a disabled gamer I struggled with heavy rain but I REALLY want to enjoy this game. Looking forward to it!

    I hope so that you can enjoy the game. Most developers do a good job in having multiple options to turn settings off

Can’t wait but that cover art isn’t working in my opinion, hopefully it changes or it’s reversible.

    thefoxymoron said:

    March 1st, 8:26 am


    Surely there had to be a better cover design that gave a greater sense to what this game is other than a MASSIVE HEAD TAKING UP 2/3rds OF THE BOX?! Hopefully it’s not too late to change that, because it’s not going to help you sell copies…

    Chuckbait said:

    March 1st, 10:42 am

    Yes, I also agree. Please change that cover. Kara should be on it, no?

    Dead-Sync said:

    March 1st, 11:42 pm

    I’m totally with you. This game will be a masterpiece and artistic achievement no doubt, but yeah that cover art is not the best. Hopefully a special/limited edition will have different box art, although for the digital presence, hopefully the square icon on the home screen is completely different as well.

    I’ve seen game art change post-launch, so it’s not too late! haha

    MLTizzy said:

    March 2nd, 11:33 pm

    So it’s not just me who was disapointed with the cover art. Even that screenshot of Kara that most retailers showed online would’ve been an okay cover for the game, but I do feel they can do better.

    Welmosca said:

    March 3rd, 12:00 am

    Really thought I was the only one who really didn’t liked the cover.Poor choice…they chose the worst of the 3 characters to be on the cover.If you play with the 3 then the 3 should be in the cover.Hope its reversible too.

One of the pictures looks like Lance Henriksen is in the game.

What is the price of this game?

Valyrious said:

March 1st, 8:29 am

One day after Persona 5 Dancing Star Night and Persona 3 Dancing Moon light release in Japan.

Works out pretty well, since those games will probably take 3 days to arrive from Japan. Been waiting to see Kara in a game for quite some years. Very excited for another Quantic game.

Please give us another cover with kara or connor, or at least a better steelbook cover. Oh yeah, also please make a steelbook + artbook edition for this game like horizon zero dawn or uncharted 4.

paulogy said:

March 1st, 9:09 am

Well I was already all-in on this, but add in Lance Henriksen — one of my favorite actors of all-time — and it just gets better and better!

    CaptReynolds said:

    March 1st, 9:38 am

    My exact sentiments:)

Zite75 said:

March 1st, 9:18 am

Please for the love of all that is PlayStation, don’t let that be the final box art.

CaptReynolds said:

March 1st, 9:37 am

Woohoo! I’ll be there Day one :) Is that Lance Henriksen? Cannot wait!

EvoAnubis said:

Can’t wait; it’s gonna be fantastic!

Rpm2878 said:

If this had a special edition PS4, I’d finally get one. As it is, it’s still my system seller. If it has a steel-book, it might just sit on a shelf until I get the PS4 to go with it. Yes, I’m late to the party but I was late to PS3 and my backlog is big; this is the game that will make, my lack of a PS4, really start to hurt.

    Last Playstation system I had was a PS2. Detroit is the PS exclusive straw that’s broken the camel’s back and I’m finally breaking down and getting a PS4. You thought your backlog was bad. lol

sekaniy said:

Detroit you have to add dynamic weather controls also. 60 degrees then 5inches of snow next day. Our future should still have pot holes on the streets also!!!!!

Impolutoxd said:

March 1st, 10:23 am

This is a day one buy for sure!, can’t wait to get my hands on this piece of art!! Thanks PlayStation, always with the greatest exclusives!

You don’t need to go into the near future to find a dystopian Detroit: it’s dystopian now. Looking forward to the game.

ProtagorasEmber said:

March 2nd, 4:47 am

Is Lance Henriksen in Detroit BH? Because that shot of the guy with grey hair leaning up against the wall really looks like Lance Henriksen.

    ProtagorasEmber said:

    March 2nd, 4:49 am

    …Er standing in front of a doorway with glass panels… that’s Bishop right??

    ProtagorasEmber said:

    March 2nd, 4:57 am

    Sorry. Google. Right.
    Anyway it’s not on Mr. Henriksen’s filmography (yet) on IMDB but according to a not so vague tweet from someone at Quantic Dream just yesterday, yeah that’s him!

AAIG1995 said:

March 2nd, 12:16 pm

Well it’s about time they finally announce the release date for Detroit Become Human I was starting to think this game has entered development hell or something.Because I thought it would come out in 2015 then 2016 and then again last year.And I’m even wondering when Death Stranding,Days Gone,and The Last Of Us part 2 come out?

MLTizzy said:

March 2nd, 11:37 pm

Gonna be pre-ordering this real soon. Can’t wait!

Welmosca said:

March 3rd, 12:07 am

Oh I really forgot about the possibility of Detroit releasing this year.I’m still very late since I still need to play Beyond but I’m lookin forward to play Detroit…lookin forward to see Kara’s story and by the looks it’ll be really nice to play with Connor too.Good job as always Quantic Dream…not buying it on launch but it was a confirmed buy for me since the announcement.

PS:Please change that cover or make a reversible one…please.

Welmosca said:

March 3rd, 12:12 am

Days Gone probably fall this year,TLoU 2 in 2019 or 2020 and Kojima said Death Stranding will release before the Japan Olympics so somewhere around 2019 and mid 2020 lol.

    Welmosca said:

    March 3rd, 12:12 am

    Oh…this was meant to be a reply to AAIG1995 .
