Quantum Break Release Date To Be Announced Tomorrow?

Microsoft Supremo Phil Spencer Teases Fans On Twitter

Long awaited Xbox One exclusive action game Quantum Break will be one of the big titles featured in Microsoft’s Gamescom briefing on Tuesday. And now the company has teased that it may announce the game’s official release date during the show.

Asked by a fan on Twitter if Microsoft will announce a “firm” release date for Quantum Break during the show, Phil Spencer had this to say…

Quantum Break, in development at Finnish studio Remedy Entertainment, was originally scheduled to launch this year; But in April, Microsoft announced that it was moving the game to 2016.

Microsoft head of publishing Shannon Loftis said at the time that the company already has the “strongest games lineup in Xbox history” for this year with games like Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Fable Legends, Forza Motorsport 6, and Gears of War: Ultimate Edition.

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

Quantum Break is not just a game on its own, as it will be accompanied by a live-action TV show. This remains in development despite the closure of Xbox Entertainment Studios last year.

Remedy has previously described Quantum Break as the “ultimate Remedy game.” The studio also created the Max Payne and Alan Wake franchises.

Microsoft’s Gamescom briefing is slated for tomorrow (August 5th), starting at 3pm GMT.

    From what i have seen of this game it appears to be very “Slow down time, shoot bad guy, restart time, then rinse and repeat”.

    Im obviously judging on the gameplay I have watched and maybe i am being too harsh but it doesnt look all too engaging.
