This figure is up from six million units sold in July 2021 and five million units sold in August 2020. 

"Our very good financial results are explained by the robust sales of our back catalog titles, and in particular Detroit: Become Human, which surpassed the symbolic one million copies sold on Steam during the year 2021," said General Manager of Quantic Dream Guillaume de Fondaumière.

Wonder if this studio will be on Sonys list of companies to acquire. They haven’t released a new game since 2018 so one or more should be quite far through development by now.

Unfortunatelly that is unlikely, I think the scandal have prevented that from happening and the studio made a partnership with Tencent, but I very much would like them to join Sony WWS.

NetEase grabbed a stake in Quantic. This is among other things that will keep it from a green light. So, nope.

The company was Netease but that didn't stop Sony buying Bungie which Netease also had an investment in.

Sony is not buying them regardless. NetEase/Tencent. Irrelevant. This is on top of their studio culture. Sony didn’t buy them when Quantic happily said they wouldn’t mind the acquisition. This doesn’t then consider that years later, Quantic flip flopped and said they want to start putting out multiplatform games and now have contracts for that.

So, it’s not happening.

Sony was less on the buying trend at that time than now, so it could change. But considering the scandals I don't think Sony will even try timed exclusivity or similar with QD.
