Quantic Dream has been very silent about Detroit Become Human for the past few months, which was revealed during Sony’s E3 press conference. Now, David Cage has broken his vow of silence and has revealed some new details about the game.
Speaking with Gamesindustry, Quantic Dream boss, David Cage, discusses many aspects of Detroit Become Human and also discussed the process of development and script writing for the game. According to the developer, it took more than 2 years to complete the script for the game.
I’ve just finished the script for Detroit. It took me more than two years, and that’s working around six days a week. It’s probably 20 times more complex than anything we’ve ever done. It’s a lot for one brain to handle.
He further added that while the script was complicated, but other developers helped him very much find and remove any loop hole in the script.
Fortunately, I have a very talented team helping me keep track of the branches and finding good ideas for each one. When it’s just one brain, you can only have so many good ideas in one day. The fact that it’s collaborative work helps me, but I like the fact that it starts with something very personal.
Recently, David Cage revealed that Detroit Become Human will be 8-10 hours long, and like the previous games from Quantic Dream, this game will also have a lot more replay value. He emphasized that players should complete their first run of the game and live the consequences of their choices, before starting over and trying other possibilities.
Detroit Become Human is a PlayStation 4 exclusive game, and no release date for the game has been announced yet.
