Quantic Dream has taken to Twitter to reveal that Detroit: Become Human has hit 1.5 million players worldwide since its launch in May.

The PlayStation 4-exclusive android-'em-up has also notched up 20 million hours of playtime, the studio added, which presumably means players have seen a lot of different outcomes. After all, one of the biggest reasons to play Detroit is for its multiple endings.

Detroit: Become Human's origins can be traced back to the 2012 Kara tech demo from Quantic Dream, and takes place in the near future as players follow the story of three androids: Connor, Kara, and Markus. 

As is the case with the likes of Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, Detroit offers branching story paths depending on your choices; it's possible to kill off one of the main characters and still continue with the narrative, although chances are you'll get a rubbish outcome if you do.

Despite all the hype and marketing surrounding the game, Colm thought the finished product was rather naff.

Detroit still found an audience though, as Quantic confirmed that it ranks as its most successful release to date.
