Sony announced today that sales for Detroit: Become Human have passed the 2 million mark.

The narrative-driven sci-fi game came out on May 25 as a PlayStation 4 exclusive. While it is not as high-profile a release as others this year — notably God of War and Marvel’s Spider-Man — Detroit is still a success.

This is the third Sony exclusive from David Cage’s Quantic Dreams studio. Heavy Rain launches for the PlayStation 3 in 2010. By 2013, it had sold over 3 million copies. Beyond: Two Souls followed in 2013. It has sold 2.8 million copies.
