Quantum Break has option to disable licensed music for YouTubers

The developer of Quantum Break, Remedy, has given consumers the option of turning off licensed tracks in the upcoming release.

Speaking to Engadget, the studio said that this was a response to feedback from YouTubers doing Let’s Plays of Remedy’s 2010 game Alan Wake. Due to YouTube’s Content ID, videos were pulled from the site due to copyright concerns.

Thus, the ability to play the game on YouTube with no licensed music means that users will be able to play the game without worry of their content being taken down.

"Streaming and YouTube especially have become such an essential part of gaming culture these days," Remedy’s media and partners boss Thomas Puha said.

"At a very late stage in the development of Quantum Break, we came up with the idea of giving the option to disable licensed music to make life a bit easier for everyone wanting to share their Quantum Break experience."
