Quantum Break delayed to 2016.

qbdelayedMicrosoft has today announced Quantum Break, the next game by Remedy (creators of Max Payne and Alan Wake), will not release before the end of this year.  Microsoft also issued a statement to explain the delay:

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

That means Quantum Break is now slated for release somewhere in 2016. Microsoft did not include a new time period in their statement but personally, I guess it wouldn’t be that far into 2016. Probably Februari or March. Best whishes to Remedy on finishing their most groundbreaking IP yet. Good luck guys!
