Since 2010, developer Quantic Dream only released games for the PlayStation family of consoles. But that’s changing this year when the studio launches Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and Detroit: Become Human on PC through the Epic Games Store.
The French studio has now confirmed release dates for each title. Heavy Rain will debut first on June 24 for $20 USD. Beyond: Two Souls will follow on July 22 for $20 USD, with Detroit: Become Human, the newest release, launching sometime this Fall 2019 for $40 USD.
Each title will also have a “sizeable” free demo available about a month before the full release. Here is the full release schedule:
- Demo: May 24
- Full Release: June 24
Beyond: Two Souls
- Demo: June 27
- Full Release: July 22
Detroit: Become Human
- Demo: Summer
- Full Release: Fall
Each title is available to pre-order now on the Epic Games Store. The titles will be released on other digital PC stores later, but no official announcements have been made at this point.
Quantic is going through big changes. Though it was never owned by Sony, the company exclusively released its games on Sony machines since 2010 with Heavy Rain. Now, the company is working on a new IP that will come to multiple platforms, while it’s taken on NetEase as a minority stakeholder to help fund its “future technologies.”
“We are so grateful for twelve fantastic years of collaboration with Sony Interactive Entertainment and all they have allowed us to create and produce,” Quantic Dream co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere said in a statement. “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.”
