Quantic Dream also took to Twitter, confirming that Detroit: Become Human is currently their fastest-selling game ever. The previous sales milestone was shortly after launch, when it was announced that the game had sold over a million copies in its first two weeks. Previous Quantic Dream games Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain have sold 3 million and 5.3 million copies respectively. It is however important to note that both games are on the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation 4.
Detroit: Become Human‘s release was marred with some controversy, as reports indicated possible abuse of employees, including a join investigation from Le Monde, Canard PC and Mediapart that has resulted in Quantic Dream losing one court case against a former employee.
