Quantum Break Has Been Delayed To 2016
Quantum Break has been delayed to 2016, developer Remedy Games has announced.
It’s long been rumoured that the highly anticipated Xbox One exclusive was going to drop out of 2015, though this is the first time an official spokesperson from Microsoft has confirmed the disappointing news.
“We’re really proud to be part of the incredible Xbox One line-up,” said Sam Lake, Creative Director at Remedy. “We thank our fans for their patience, and want them to know that the team is taking advantage of this opportunity to polish and fine tune the game to create the kind of standout entertainment experience they’ve come to expect from us.”
Remedy – the studio behind Max Payne and Alan Wake – is notorious for delaying its titles, it took Alan Wake five years to release following its 2005 reveal. Still, it sounds as if Microsoft is pushing Quantum Break into 2016 to give its 2015 release window room to breath, and to give the action-adventure game a chance to shine away from the usual suspects that typically arrive in the Autumn.
“With so many Xbox One games launching this year, moving Quantum Break to 2016 extends our incredible portfolio into next year with a monster new IP,” said Shannon Loftis, Head of Publishing at Microsoft Studios.
Here’s hoping Quantum Break can launch before summer 2016, it’s kind of release window designed for divisive games like this.
