Become Human Rumoured To Have Once Had A “Whore Android” Character

Quantic Dream may have cut Detroit: Become Human a bit shorter than originally intended. An insider says the studio planned on adding a “whore android” protagonist, and that details around the scenario made Sony quickly want to wrap its deal with the studio up.

Tom Henderson, who has a proven track record of providing accurate triple-A leaks, claims Quantic Dream had another project in the works after its Beyond: Two Souls release called Project Karma. Karma eventually became Solstice, and was cancelled after Sony pushed for the studio to deliver its third PlayStation exclusive based on the Detroit: Become Human Kara demo. Said demo was first revealed back in 2012, showing off Quantic Dream’s motion capture technology at the Game Developer’s Conference.

Henderson added that Detroit’s cut fourth protagonist, its “whore android,” also had “blonde hair and huge boobs,” and some of the details surrounding the character “resulted in Sony wanting to wrap up the 3 game deal ASAP.”

That android never made it into the game Quantic Dream delivered, and Henderson said it’s “unclear” what happened to Project Solstice—or if it will ultimately become the Star Wars game it’s rumored to have in the works. He noted the studio had difficulties with its engine, and that his sources indicate it’s not fit for an open world game. The studio has not publicly commented on the details around the leaks on Detroit or its rumored Star Wars project.

However, Quantic Dream did recently issue a statement on its legal battle with two France-based outlets, Le Monde and Mediapart, after it sued them for libel over reports of workplace harassment from unnamed employees. Back in 2018, the two newspapers, along with Canard PC, published allegations from anonymous Quantic Dream employees that included accounts of sexist, racist, and homophobic comments, photoshopping employees into sexual and nazi images, and overwork. The images were said to have circulated throughout Quantic Dream in an email thread, and recipients included founders David Cage and Guillaume de Fondaumière.

The studio was forced to pay a fine for circulating the images in 2019. Both lawsuits against the French newspapers just ended this month and Kotaku recently reported on how Quantic Dream lost its case against Mediapart and won against Le Monde. The studio’s statement denies all of the accusations, and argues court rulings prove the allegations in the original reports were “untrue” and “damage the studio’s honor and reputation.”
