Quantum Break

Remedy Entertainment’s Quantum Break has been a fairly large success. Along with debuting in the UK with impressive numbers, it’s also the biggest selling new IP for the Xbox One from Microsoft Studios.

Speaking on Xbox Wire, Xbox marketing executive Aaron Greenberg revealed that, “Quantum Break was the #1 best-selling Xbox game around the world last week, and is now officially the biggest-selling new Microsoft Studios published IP this generation. In addition, last week Quantum Break was the #1 most played new game on Xbox, worldwide.

“The level of excitement we have seen from our fans around the world for Quantum Break has been humbling. We want to thank the community for their support for helping us achieve this international success.”

Creative director Sam Lake also weighed in on the game’s success. “Making Quantum Break has been a long journey. Creating a new AAA franchise is always a risk and a huge investment, but at Remedy we want to push ourselves, explore new ideas and realize new visions. It’s wonderful to see gamers want that too. We’re hugely grateful for the positive reception and glad to see that the story of Jack Joyce and Paul Serene resonates with so many players.”
