When the Xbox One was first announced last summer, Remedy Entertainment revealed a brand new exclusive. Fans initially hoped the launch would coincide with the release of Microsoft’s latest console, but now it sounds like we’ll be waiting until 2015 to get our hands on Quantum Break.
A recently released video featuring creative director Sam Lake gives us a bold look at some tantalizing gameplay and confirms the 2015 launch. Our latest peek at the time-warping glory of Quantum Break leaves us hungry for more. I really wanted a huge slab of Quantum Break steak with some Remedy gravy, but all I got was a Quantum Break carrot stick.
If extreme sequences of intense action, time-warping, and the prospect of a TV series tie-in doesn’t sell you on Quantum Break, Sam Lake’s voice will. He could have told me the game was releasing in 2017 as an Android exclusive and I still would have been happy with the video. Microsoft plans on officially revealing the gameplay for the first time at Gamescon in August. This unfortunately means we won’t be getting anything new at E3.
Quantum Break is one of the Xbox One exclusives I’m most excited about. Alan Wake was easily one of my favorite games of the last generation and I have complete faith in Remedy’s ability to deliver a phenomenal action title. The studio responsible for bullet-time aims to deliver an “entertainment experience like no other.”
Say what you will about Microsoft, but they sure know how to produce incredible promotional content. Does this video get you excited for the release of Quantum Break?

10 minutes of pure eyesex in a Sunset Overdrive trailer > 3 minutes of piss-poor The Order: 1886 gameplay. Microsoft has always had phenomenal trailers.
If Sunset Overdrive comes out this year, I think might weep tears of man-joy.
