The game reached the feat in less than a year and a half, having released for Sony’s console on May 25, 2018.
Quantic Dream announced the sales milestone on Twitter.
The sci-fi game is set in 2038 in a world where human-like androids built to serve are omnipresent. Players take on the role of three distinct androids and face a series of life-or-death moral dilemmas in a story featuring a branching narrative.
Earlier this year Quantic Dream released Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls on PC via the Epic Games store, while Detroit: Become Human will arrive on the platform this fall.
Prior to that the titles had only been released on PlayStation platforms, due to an exclusive working relationship between Quantic Dream and Sony which ended in January 2019 after more than a decade.
Quantic Dream CEO David Cage said recently that unless there are specific exclusivity deals in place on a title-by-title basis, all the studio’s games will be multiplatform at launch.
He also said he believes “cloud play is going to be the next revolution in gaming” and that improvements in lighting technology rather than increased resolutions are going to be key to boosting realism in games over the coming years.
