One of the most anticipated games on the Xbox One game console is Quantum Break, an exclusive that looks to be one of the first to fully explore the capabilities of the next-gen console’s performance. Involving breathtaking graphics, time warp sequences, and a mind-boggling story, Quantum Break has all the makings of a fantastic game, however, we’re going to have to wait a little longer for its release after it was announced by Microsoft and Remedy Entertainment that Quantum Break is delayed to 2016.
The quoted reason for this is that “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.” The strategy behind this is sound – like Evolve, a new IP is likely to struggle against yearly stalwarts like Call of Duty and assorted sports games in the latter half of the year, so waiting till the new year is a very viable, even necessary, step to take. Hopefully this means the makers of Max Payne and Alan Wake will have the time they need to make the game even more polished by the time it is released.
