Quantic Dream generated a net profit before taxes from more than € 5.8 million in 2021 and thus achieves a record profit for the third year in a row.
"Although we are still strongly affected by the pandemic, Quantic Dream was able to achieve results in 2021, which were above our expectations. Just like the significant increase in the workforce, more than 50 percent, as well as the conclusion of many production partnerships, "explains Guillaume de Fondaumière, General Manager of Quantic Dream. "Our very good financial results are explained by the good sales figures of our back catalog title. This includes in particular Detroit: Become Human, which in 2021 has exceeded the important symbolic mark of one million sold specimens on Steam. With a total of more than 6.5 million specimens sold worldwide on PC and PS4, this title is now the largest commercial success of Quantic Dream, "continues De Fondumière.
In addition, Quantic Dream continuously works on the development of three other self-productions. After the pre-production and prototyping phases were successfully completed, the year 2022 becomes an important milestone in the production phases of these three unique titles.
"After a year of steady growth of our workforce, we will soon begin with a second major recruiting and setting phase at our two production sites in Montreal and Paris," explains Sophie Buhl, Production Director of Quantic Dream. "In our continuous efforts to innovate, we are open to new types of games and challenges and will continue to make great efforts in research and development. This offers those who want to work on ambitious and innovative projects, great opportunities in a variety of teams, which are increasingly being guided by women, "supplements Buhl.
