Quantum Break delayed until 2016

Remedy’s Xbox One-exclusive Quantum Break has been delayed until next year.

Microsoft has pushed the time-bending title back until 2016.

Developer Remedy says that the delay is due to the firm wanting to give its Xbox One debut a bit of polish.

And Microsoft is seemingly bullish about the title missing its 2015 release window, saying it still has a strong line-up for this year.

This is the latest in a series of games being delayed from this year until 2016. Last month Sony announced that Uncharted 4 would not make its 2015 release window, while Nintendo has also revealed that The Legend of Zelda for Wii U would be coming out next year.

We’ve got the strongest games lineup in Xbox history right now, with 2015 blockbuster exclusives like Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Fable Legends, and Forza Motorsport 6, and more we’ll announce in the coming months." Microsoft’s head of publishing Shannon Loftis said.

"With so many games launching this year, moving Quantum Break to 2016 extends our incredible portfolio into next year with a monster new IP.”

Remedy creative director Sam Lake added: We’re really proud to be part of the incredible Xbox One line-up. We thank our fans for their patience, and want them to know that the team is taking advantage of this opportunity to polish and fine tune the game to create the kind of standout entertainment experience they’ve come to expect from us."
