UPDATED: Quantum Break Release Date Changed By Amazon UK
UPDATED: Remedy’s head of PR, Thomas Puha, has just commented on the Amazon UK date, and states that Quantum Break will still launch on April 5, 2016.
Xbox One exclusive Quantum Break has its release date changed to May 4 2016 on Amazon UK.
The change was noticed by Neogaf user uncleniccius today. The change is strange since both Remedy and Microsoft announced that the time-bending action title will release globally on April 5, 2016. Both the German and US Amazon site still mention that release date. If the change means a delay for the game, is uncertain.
We reached out to Remedy and Microsoft to verify.
Quantum Break was delayed earlier
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.”
In June of this year, then CEO at Remedy, Matias Myllyrinne, announced that he would be leaving the Finish developer. Following the announcement however, Myllyrinne reassured fans Quantum Break looks amazing, and the team is working hard.
The studio is in good standing and will go on to great things. Quantum Break looks amazing and the team is working hard to build it into the game that you deserve. It will be worthy of the Remedy brand
Development on Quantum Break has been quite long. The game was officially announced in 2013, but Remedy started hiring people to work on the title back in March 2012.
A few weeks ago 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.
