Detroit: Become Human made an impressive showing at E3 2017, with an extended trailer that offered additional insight into the world Quantic Dream has been hard at work on creating. The latest project from the developer of Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, Detroit: Become Human is an intriguing mixture of philosophy by way of robotics and seemingly the tale of an android that wants to be free. Unfortunately the trailer, while gorgeous, didn’t offer anything by way of a release date.
Director David Cage has come forward now with some semblance of when we can expect the game, when speaking with GameSpot during an interview at the show. Cage told GameSpot during E3 that the release date is “going to be next year.” So now at the very least we know we can expect to see the game on store shelves at some point in 2018, but there’s no specific date just yet on the docket.
After Sony debuted a new trailer for the adventure during its E3 presentation, it seemed likely we may even see the game this year, but unfortunately that was not the case. Eagle-eyed fans previously spotted the gam during a sizzle reel with many of the PlayStation 2017 releases, but Shuhei Yoshida, president of Worldwide Studios at Sony, shot this down as a simple mistake.
We’ve seen two very large chunks of footage of what we might be able to expect from Detroit: Become Human when it finally does release, so hopefully there’s more to come in the next few months to try and discern what more is going on in the city, which several of us are certainly looking forward to exploring.
