Speaking to GamesIndustry International, Remedy Entertainment CEO Matias Myllyrinne revealed the current progress of Quantum Break’s TV show, and how the venture couldn’t have been possible without Microsoft – who nonetheless have a vested interest in it. Hence its exclusivity.
“We’ve shot the pilot and we’ve tested out various partners. We’re working with different people so we know where we’re going with it…but I can’t get into too many details on the talent behind it. It’s something we’ll be shooting on the West Coast of L.A.
“This is clearly a strategic move for them as well as us. This is something – we have crazy ideas – but we need to fall back and let the full force of a company like Microsoft see it through. There’s no way on Earth that we would take on a venture like this on our own. We might have the appetite but there’s no way we could.
“For us, our interests are nicely aligned. We serve a strategic purpose for them in delivering unique content for their platform with a unique twist. And for us that allows us follow the creative passion that the team needs to fulfill through a project like this.”
Quantum Break was announced for the Xbox One in May, though a release date for the game is still TBA.
