Remedy Entertainment’s Quantum Break turned out to be one of the bigger successes for Microsoft’s Xbox One console but it’s also notorious for being the only real success to come out of the now shuttered Xbox Entertainment Studios.

That being said, despite the division’s closure, Microsoft Studios general manager Shannon Loftis is interested in exploring another such “mixed media” Xbox title down the road.

Speaking to The Guardian, Loftis said, “Actually it’s getting easier. As performance capture becomes more sophisticated, the work to bridge the gap between the linear entertainment and the interactive element is becoming less and less. I would love to work on another mixed-media game.”

Quantum Break released in April to decent critical acclaim and strong sales. It was the fastest-selling new IP published by Microsoft in the UK this console generation and also the best-selling new IP published by the company till date. Would you be interested in another such transmedia title? Let us know in the comments.

    Loved Quantum Break. The pacing was perfect. Both the ramp up of story and gameplay was…just amazing and if you were creative with the use of your powers you could pull off amazing stuff.

    I’d actually love to see the brought into an open world type setting instead of a level by level system.

    I know they did it that way for narrative reasons but having an open world where you also are trying to help people as time is breaking would be great.

      The ending felt like there was more to come. I’ll be buying another if its anything like this game.

      Oh me too. I love how much lore is hidden in the world in the graffiti and it’s really obtuse and makes you think but all the answers are there from the start you just don’t know it. Usually I hate reading logs or emails in games but in this one I liked it because it all felt natural.

      There was a ton of extra story buried in the game but it wasn’t forced on you but at the same time it ended up being interesting enough that I didn’t mind stopping for a min and reading. It added a lot of depth to some of the characters that would have felt out of place in the game itself.

      Agreed. Fantastic game indeed.

    I don’t know. Maybe if it is done better next time around. Downloading video clips for a game with Xbox One’s extremely slow download speeds kinda kills the whole experience of buying a game and just taking it home, popping it into your console and playing it. Who would want to have to deal with that crap again? Can you say server overload? $60 just for an actual 4 hours of clunky gameplay time, after downloading videos for 2 whole days on Xbox One’s AOL dial up download speeds. Can you say ripoff?

    Sure won’t be with Remedy now they’ve jumped off that sinking ship.

    Just finished playing it and I am jonesing for a part 2. The game play to rendered scenes to live action flowed so smoothly I wanted to see an entire Netflix series based off the game. Great character interaction, decent game play mechanics, phenomenal story and acting. Sign me up.
