Quantic Dream once again defends itself against accusations of sexual abuse and harassment
A union has once again charged the authors of Detroit: Become Human.
A year and a half after the first information about an alleged sexual harassment at the Quantic Dream offices came to light, the team responsible for the successful Detroit: Become Human has again made the news for the same issue. This time it was the union Game Workers Unite the one who has decided to investigate the matter due to the seriousness of the accusations.
"We have been informed about acts of abuse and sexual harassment against women who work or have worked in the company," reads the official union statement. "These are extremely serious charges that are punishable by law, and yet they have been repeated for years hidden behind a pact of silence, so this must end."
The Quantic Dream team has not taken long to deny this information. "Quantic Dream is a studio where everyone can express themselves freely," report the authors of Heavy Rain. "Our varied teams reflect values of freedom, equality and diversity," they continue in their writing. "We take very seriously our commitment to creating a safe and creative work environment within an open and respectful environment. The entire team remains, as always, united in this goal."
"We take abuse cases very seriously," they say, stating that they are "not aware that any of this is happening in our study, and we encourage victims to contact the relevant authorities." In the past Quantic Dream assured that it would denounce the newspapers that accused them of sexual abuse, affirming that they suffered a smear campaign.
