PlayStation 4 exclusive Detroit: Become Human has a release date


PlayStation 4 exclusive Detroit: Become Human launches on 25th May, Sony has announced.

Detroit is the latest narrative adventure from Quantic Dream, the studio behind Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls. This time, the story concerns the evolution of AI robots and their integration into society (so, like the TV series Humans, and the film Ex Machina).

The project has had a rocky road to release. Late last year Detroit and its makers came under fire for an eye-opening scene which depicted domestic abuse. Then, last month, Quantic Dream was rocked by allegations of an unhealthy studio culture and workplace harassment, something studio boss David Cage has since labelled as a smear".

"This game may be seen as controversial as it explores a number of sensitive topics that some people may consider inappropriate or taboo for video games, but maybe this is the most fascinating aspect of Detroit," director Cage said today, as part of the release date announcement.

"We hope that it sparks some meaningful conversations and we're looking forward to hearing what you think about it."
