As reported already, Quantum Break is no longer releasing this year. Microsoft believes this to be a positive thing.
Xbox head of marketing, Aaron Greenberg, noted on Twitter that the delay of Quantum Break can only be a good thing. He said: “Game looks fantastic & making great progress but giving something this innovative more time we believe is a good thing“.
Quantum Break being delayed until 2016 means the Xbox One exclusive could compete with Sony’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Both games were supposed to be out later this year, but slipped until 2016. The Legend of Zelda Wii U is also another game that can join the list too.
The delay of Quantum Break is probably a wise thing. 2014 was not a nice year for gamers. Tons of games such as Assassin’s Creed Unity, Driveclub and Halo: The Master Chief Collection shipped with network errors, bugs and glitches. Delaying the game until 2016 means the game shouldn’t have any issues when it comes out.
Greenberg also noted losing Quantum Break from the Fall 2015 lineup is not a huge loss. He said Microsoft will be sharing more details soon of more games. Right now, Xbox One’s Holiday lineup includes Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Forza Motorsport 6.
