Development on Quantum Break has been quite long, so one might understand Lake’s excitement. The game was officially announced in 2013, but Remedy started hiring people to work on the title back in March 2012.
Quantum Break development began back in 2012
A while back we reported that the game’s ‘shivering’ end scene was locked down by Remedy. According Remedy’s drama director Stobe Harju, locking down Quantum Break’s end scene was important to the rest of the game’s scenes.
Xbox One exclusive Quantum Break was first scheduled for a release in 2014, but has been delayed multiple times. According publisher Microsoft the game was recently delayed due to a clash with other Xbox One exclusives releasing late 2015. Remedy’s Sam Lake, has assured fans that the extra development time on the game, will be used to further “polish” the game.
“We’re really proud to be part of the incredible Xbox One line-up,” said Sam Lake, Creative Director at Remedy. “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.”
Quantum Break is now set for a release on April 5, 2016.
