Quantum Break Delayed

The time-splitting action-entertainment experience, Quantum Break, will now be launching in 2016, rather than later this year.

Remedy’s (creators of Alan Wake & Max Payne) upcoming game has been shifted to next year in a bid by Microsoft to declutter the Xbox launch schedule for this year. The logical move has been expected for some time, with giants like Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Forza 6 all launching later this year.

Head of Publishing, Shannon Loftis, said “We’ve got the strongest games lineup in Xbox history right now, with 2015 blockbuster exclusives like Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Fable Legends, and Forza Motorsport 6, and more we’ll announce in the coming months,”

“With so many games launching this year, moving Quantum Break to 2016 extends our incredible portfolio into next year with a monster new IP.”

Remedy’s Creative Director, Sam Lake, assured fans the time would be put to good use, saying: “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.”

Quantum Break is shaping up to be both an enormous and original experience, mixing action-game and live-action elements into one big interactive creation – launching exclusively for Xbox One now in 2016.
