Will Detroit: Become Human Release on Xbox One?

Wondering if Quantic Dream's upcoming thriller Detroit: Become Human is coming to the Xbox One? You're not alone.


Game fans have plenty of reasons to get excited about Detroit: Become Human. Developer Quantic Dream has established quite a big name for itself with the releases of Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, and the studio's latest adventure ups the ante with a neo-noir, techno-thriller vibe that looks packed to the brim with action and drama. The previous releases from Quantic Dream might have slipped by players who didn't own a PlayStation 3 at the time, leaving many current-generation gamers to wonder whether or not Detroit: Become Human will come to Xbox One or other competing platforms. It just so happens that we know the answer.

Will Detroit: Become Human Release for Xbox One or PC?

No, it is very unlikely that Detroit: Become Human will release for Xbox One, PC, or any other non-Sony platform. This is because Quantic Dream is a second-party French independent video game development studio with deep ties to Sony. The two have been part of an exclusivity agreement for years, with both Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls launching as PlayStation exclusives. More than that, a few months before Beyond: Two Souls made its initial debut, Quantic Dream CEO Gillaume de Fondaumiere spoke about the business partnership, telling Official PlayStation Magazine (via NeoGAF) that "as long as we can create the games we want to create, we'll stay with Sony."

"We're certainly not going to change partner for the sake of making more money; that's not the philosophy behind our studio," he said. "Ever since we started our partnership, Sony just said it was going to give us the money to build these games and we said we were going to work as hard as we could and reward it for its trust.”

Hearing those words, and knowing that Quantic Dream and Sony have been exclusive together for the better part of a decade, it would be very surprising to learn that Detroit: Become Human would release for anything other than a PlayStation console. Sorry Xbox fans, PC players, and Switch enthusiasts — it's just not going to happen.

Knowing is half the battle, they say, so continue the search for details surrounding Quantic Dream's latest adventure by heading over to Shacknews' own Detroit: Become Human homepage, and stay on the lookout for future guides, news, and more in the coming weeks.
