Remedy’s Xbox One Exclusive shooter, Quantum Break, has been pushed back to 2016. Originally set to launch this year, Microsoft had delayed the game to extend their portfolio into 2016.
“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,” said Shannon Loftis, head of publishing, in a prepared statement. “With so many games launching this year, movingQuantum Break to 2016 extends our incredible portfolio into next year with a monster new IP.”
The added time won’t go to waste though, as Remedy’s Sam Lake stated that the team will use this extra time improve the game. “We’re really proud to be part of the incredible Xbox One line-up,” he said in a prepared statement. “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.”
