The PS4 exclusive title from Quantic Dream 'Detroit: Become Human' is reaching new sales heights, as the game pushes the 3 million units sold mark developers Quantic Dream plan to expand their studio.


The news comes from GamesBeat where the sales numbers for Detroit: Become Human were revealed through an interview with Quantic Dream's CEO, David Cage. Cage said "Detroit is certainly a radical proposition for some people, but the most important thing for us was the amazing reception the game received from gamers, which has translated into our studio's biggest commercial success to date. Eight months following the release, we are closing in on 3 million units sold worldwide as an exclusive PS4 title. The game's commercial performance has been particularly noteworthy in Japan and across all Asia."

Cage continues and explains that not only is the PS4 exclusive title selling well, but it also is being well received by reviewers. Some websites even giving the title a 87% user score. All of this motivation rushing through Quantic Dream off the back of their efforts with Detroit: Become Human has caused the development studio to want to increase the total amount of employee's. Here is what Cage had to say on that matter: "Yes, we are right now hiring across all disciplines, from production and programming to game design and art. We are looking for talented people who want to work on very ambitious projects. The team was around 200 people at the peak of Detroit, so our objective will be to reach around 300 people."
