I was hoping that we would get to see something new from Remedy and their upcoming (delayed) title, Quantum Break at E3. But in their latest video “Celebrating 20 Years of Remedy”, Sam Lake slips in that the next time we will see new footage is at this year’s gamescom!
This doesn’t mean that the title will be absent from Microsoft’s presentation, as I’m sure they will be keen to show off this promising title as part of their show reel, but it’s rather disappointing that we won’t get to see what progress has been made on the title since the delay was announced.
Everyone has a pile of shame and mine is beginning to grow quicker than I’d like, so today’s (expected) delay of Quantum Break is quite a welcome one, besides, it gives Remedy Entertainment plenty of time to make this game play as good as it looks.
The news came earlier via Remedy’s official twitter account
I’ve been looking forward to this title ever since it got revealed and was one of the reasons why I bought an Xbox One, it’s a shame it hasn’t been released as planned but I won’t be grabbing the pitch fork just yet… although by delaying Quantum Break until 2016, my expectations have only been made higher!
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.
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.

Developed exclusively for the Xbox One, Quantum Break is said to blur the line between television and gameplay, integrating the two into one seamless and immersive experience. Quantum Break weaves the cinematic action of intense gameplay with the tension and drama of scripted television, creating a world where each has a direct impact on the other.
