Detroit: Become Human can end in more than “1000 different combinations,” says Quantic Dream

Quantic Dream has confirmed that Detroit: Become Human contain a multitude of different endings for players to experience.

Speaking to Trusted Reviews, lead writer Adam Williams said that Become Human’s third act has more than “1000 different combinations” in which events can unfold.

“We know also that you can lose any or indeed all of your playable characters before the end of the story,” Williams explains.

Williams also said that Quantic Dream wants to make sure that players aren’t just met with a credits scene once a major character kicks the bucket, either.

“We [Quantic Dream] spent a lot of time making sure whichever case you get, you still get a sense of an ending. And that was critical for us because if you did just get credits after some cases that case then feels like not the real case. As a player, you’ll look at it and think, “I need to go back and re-choose to get the full experience.”

Upon being asked by Trusted Reviews how long the average playthrough of Detroit: Become Human will be, Williams said “honestly we don’t know yet.”

“We wanted whatever case you got to feel like a meaningful story with a meaningful ending. But of course, that means that the length is hugely variable because if you lose all your characters you are gonna have less experience than anyone who plays through to the end.”

Having recently played the opening hours of Detroit: Become Human, it does allow the player to make constant decisions which may or may not impact the overall narrative. Here’s a snippet from our preview:

‘Quantic Dream has the potential to create a gripping sci-fi epic with Detroit: Become Human but its insistence on tackling themes it executes with little impact continues to hurt its chances of doing so. Without a message at its core, the whole thing rings hollow.’
