Detroit: Become Human recently had a PR nightmare when one of its employees thought it was a brilliant idea to directly shade its main competitor the Xbox One.
The tweet was barely live for 3 hours before the PR team realized its mistake and all traces of it were removed. But the damage was already done. The tweet read:
When you wake up and #DetroitBecomeHuman is still a PS4 exclusive and you’re still an @Xbox owner. #ThursdayThoughts
You can check out the screenshot:
Since the Twitter handle isn’t verified, it was hard to ascertain if it was indeed the official account for the game but looking at Quantic Dream’s account confirmed it which sent out a tweet asking people to follow this account: “Make sure you follow @Detroit_PS4 for the latest news on #DetroitBecomeHuman!”
Needless to say, people weren’t amused at this below the belt dig the account took:

When you wake up and you think this childish garbage is ok to tweet from an official account

Sony must have been not very impressed with this reckless act but thankfully it was quickly taken care of.
