David Cage’s Heavy Rain, the popular murder thriller Telltale Games-esque adventure game released on the PS3 in February 2010, and later on the PS4, has now crossed 4.5 million units sold worldwide, Quantic Dream confirmed today.
“We are very proud to announce that combined sales of Heavy Rain on PS3 (released in 2010) and PS4 (released in 2016) are now in excess of 4.5 million units worldwide,” Quantic Dream said on Facebook. “Kudos to our fans!”
Heavy Rain remains Quantic Dream’s most acclaimed and successful game to date. It was followed up by Beyond: Two Souls, which failed to replicate its success. No doubt David Cage and Quantic Dream are hoping that the upcoming PS4 exclusive Detroit: Become Human will be able to channel and recreate the kind of success that Heavy Rain, which presciently foresaw the success of the Telltale brand of adventure games years before that happened, again. Whether or not it does, we can rest assured that it will be a unique experience regardless, however.
