Detroit, Beyond, and Heavy Rain Coming to PC on the Epic Games Store

Quantic Dream's titles finally drop their PlayStation exclusivity.

The 2019 Game Developers Conference is in full swing and developer Quantic Dream is coming out with a surprise. The developer's last three titles were PlayStation exclusive, but they'll soon be coming to PC. Detroit: Become Human, Beyond: Two Souls, and Heavy Rain are all heading exclusively to the Epic Games Store.

"We are so grateful for twelve fantastic years of collaboration with Sony Interactive Entertainment and all they have allowed us to create and produce," said Quantic Dream co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere in a press release. "With this new partnership with Epic, we can now expand our products to a wider fan base and allow PC players to enjoy our titles."

All three games are coming to the Epic Games Store later this year, but no specific release window was given. The deal will last for an entire year, after which all three games will potentially come to other platforms like Steam. Prior to its run of PlayStation-exclusive games, Quantic Dream did develop multi-platform titles, like Indigo Prophecy, which released first on PlayStation 2 and Xbox back in 2005.

This news comes after an investment deal from Chinese company NetEase earlier this year, which allowed Quantic Dream to leave behind its platform-exclusivity. The developer already announced that the deal would allow them to go cross-platform, we just didn't expect it to happen this quickly.

"[W]e are working on our next engine that will be cross-platform and even more impressive than anything we have done before," Quantic Dream director David Cage said at the time of the deal.

"We will continue to work on PlayStation, which is a platform we love and that we know very well. But we will also consider other platforms as we want to make our creations accessible to as many gamers as possible worldwide, regardless of platforms," added de Fondaumiere.
