Detroit: Become Human and Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream has announced it’s now intending to self-publish all its futures. Quantic Dream will be a wholly independent development and publishing outfit, meaning future games should no longer be tied to exclusivity deals.

“After 23 years of learning, discovery, and growth, the studio is now going independent — and we have become masters of our own destiny,” said Quantic Dream co-CEOs David Cage and Guillaume de Fondaumière.

“The last two years have been exceptional: the success of Detroit: Become Human; the growth of an incredible global community; the launch of our games on PC – these are just a few of our highlights. Thanks to Detroit: Become Human, we’ve been able to realize the vision we held dear since the creation of Quantic Dream.

“And so, for the first time in 23 years of working with prestigious publishers, we are now in a position to self-publish.”

Going forward, it means Quantic Dream is in a position to take advantage of the technology opportunities offered by all next-generation consoles, as well as green-lighting PC versions of its future releases.

As it currently stands, Quantic Dream has no announced projects. Its last game, Detroit: Become Human, launched on PS4 in early 2018, while a PC port came to the Epic Games Store just before Christmas. The studio’s probably been cooking up its next project for a while then, so we’d expect to hear something soon enough.

That's great. Now David Cage just needs find some decent writers and stop writing himself and they might also produce some worthwhile stories too.

Pls don't make your own launcher.


Just use a simple download link, or better yet use the P2P protocol (after a purchase has been verified)

I am sure they will release their games on Epic Store.

They'll definitely take that sweet epic money when they get the chance. Can't blame them, certainly gives them some safety.

I downloaded Warframe from the creators homepage.
It is possible to implement, it's just a matter of cost.


As far as P2P goes, Libre Office has a torrent to download the application.
The P2P is mostly avoided cause of the "illegal" view of the technology behind it.


Also neat sarcasm.

I suppose there isn't a reason not to do it besides security. But yes thank you I don't get enough credit for my sarcasm
