We don’t know much about Quantic Dream’s next game Detroit: Become Human, but thanks to a new GamesIndustry review with the game’s creator David Cage we now know a slither more. Specifically, we have learned that Quantic’s newest entry is far more ambitious than any of its previous games, at least in the script department.
When talking about his responsibility for the game’s script, Cage said the following about its complexity and how long it took:
“It’s a big burden, to be honest. 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.
Cage then goes on to mention that he’s thankful that the burden isn’t solely his.
“[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.”
Personally, Detroit: Become Human is one of my most anticipated games, and hearing that the script is 20 times more complex is music to my ears. Hopefully with Detroit, Quantic Dream can steal back supremacy of the genre.
Detroit: Become Human is set to release for PS4 exclusively at an unannounced date.
