The Epic Games Store is picking on steam…well everything that Steam use picked up for PC release as Quantic Dream announces that three of their top titles are on their way to the platform. Detroit Become Human, Beyond Two Souls and Heavy Rain will all be arriving on PC in 2019.
Detroit Become Human, Heavy Rain and Beyond are Coming to PC
These Quantic Dream titles were previously only released on PS3 and PS4 as they were published with Sony Interactive Entertainment, but now for the first time they are coming to PC via the Epic Games Store.

While Quantic Dream can now take these exclusives to more platforms, developer’s co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere shared his appreciation for the partnership:
So grateful for twelve fantastic years of collaboration with Sony Interactive Entertainment and all they have allowed us to create and produce.
But under this new platform, Quantic no longer are only developing their games but self-publishing them too:
The most important evolution for Quantic Dream, however, is that we are no longer a developer working with a publisher. Starting with the PC versions of Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human, we will be self-publishing all our titles.
It was earlier this year when online gaming company giant NetEase made a minority investment into the company, meaning Quantic could expand from Playstation exclusive releases to more platforms in future.
This investment will allow us to invest in future technologies and games in order to prepare for the next generation of platforms, with the same ambition regarding creativity and innovation.
This definitely bringing a shake up to the PC gaming platform as Epic Games has been snapping up timed exclusives with such upcoming titles as The Outer Worlds and Phoenix Point. This has even led developers to specifically announce whether or not they are planning to choose certain platforms for their launch, which is what CD Projekt Red the developer of Cyberpunk 2077 did.
Titles Detroit Become Human, Beyond Two Souls and Heavy Rain will be coming to PC via the Epic Games Store later this year.
