Quantic Dream announced in Mar 2019 that its PlayStation 4 exclusive titles “Heavy Rain,” “Beyond: Two Souls,” and “Detroit: Become Human” will be available to PC gamers through the Epic Games Store. In June, Quantic Dream released the PC version of “Heavy Rain,” followed by “Beyond: Two Souls” a month after. Now, the studio announced that “Detroit: Become Human” will finally make its way to the PC port on Dec. 12, 2019.

Quantic Dream announced the release date of “Detroit: Become Human” and make the game available for pre-order. The gaming studio also released a new demo along with the opening scene of the game. The developer revealed that the PC port is not a simple port for the PlayStation 4 exclusive title.

It hinted that the PC port of “Detroit: Become Human” has a redesigned interface to capitalize on the input methods of PC. Additionally, the game’s PC version can be played at 4K and 60 frames per second because of its beefy storage and computing power. Some gamers are worried that Quantic Dream might have rushed porting the game to PC.

However, Quantic Dream Co-Founder David Cage shared that this is not the case. Quantic Dreams games are optimized to the core for PlayStation with a very precise architecture to be as proximate as possible to the hardware. This is one of the advantages of releasing on a single platform since the game developer can really customize the game engine for optimum performance, Cage revealed.

The disadvantage is that adapting the exclusive title to other platforms is more challenging. With “Detroit: Become Human” PC port, Quantic Dream had to work on new engines dedicated to PC to ensure that the game will have optimum performance. “Heavy Rain” and “Beyond: Two Souls” have a different engine, but, with “Detroit: Become Human,” the team used the latest generation PC engine running under OpenGL Vulkan, the co-funder explained.

Porting the game to PC has always been an enormous challenge for the team since we want to give PC players the original experience without compromising anything, Cage revealed. PC gamers can expect high-quality rendering because of the redesigned interface and new engine that Quantic Dream used.
