65. Quantum Break

Remedy Entertainment’s Quantum Break, as previously announced, has been delayed into 2016 which leaves the Xbox One short of an exclusive this year. The game was delayed for more polishing and honestly, seeing the gamplay and visuals – not to mention the state of games rushed out before they were ready – we appreciate the delay.

Writer Sam Lake provided some rather interesting comments about the game’s central theme. When a fan asked on Twitter about Lake possibly writing mystery novels, he replied that he was too busy working on Quantum Break and needed time.

Of course, the metaphor was obvious: Quantum Break is a game about individuals who can control time but still work to stop various disasters despite their gifts. As Lake noted in a follow-up tweet:

Sure, it doesn’t provide many more details about Quantum Break but the parallels between Remedy’s development and the game’s core theme are interesting. What are your thoughts on all this? Let us know in the comments.

    I really like this game and i hope that it will be ported to pc like Alan Wake because i actually have no one reason to buy an Xbox One.

      Sucks to be you Sony pony. What you really mean is this game is gonna be good but I only have ps4 so i’ll just troll. Everyone knows you have no PC.

      Actually i don’t want to offend you but when someone is an idiot there is nothing to do!
      I actually have a WiiU and a PC (no ps4 sony pony ssorry!) and seriusly how many good exsclusives are on XboxOne? The majority of the games have a PC version or a PS4 one so why spending a lot of money just for a couple of games? This in no more the time of those Killer Applications that alone would sell a system.

      actually Alan Wake was a PC game untill MS stole it from us
