Quantum Break release date delayed until 2016

Microsoft has confirmed the Quantum Break release date has been delayed until 2016.
 
Alan Wake developer Remedy Entertainment has delayed the launch of Quantum Break, moving it from this year to next.
 
Shannon Loftis, Microsoft’s Head of Publishing, said in a statement that Xbox already has the “strongest game lineup in Xbox history” this year, with games like Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Fable Legends and Forza Motorsport 6 on the horizon.
 
She also promised that there will be “more we’ll announce in the coming months”, no doubt at E3 2015.
 “With so many games launching this year, moving Quantum Break to 2016 extends our incredible portfolio into next year with a monster new IP.”

Back in November last year, Xbox boss Phil Spencer did say 2015’s lineup was a little jam packed and something might need to move, so we’re not particularly surprised about the delay.
 
We also haven’t yet had any hands-on time with the game, only seeing a hands-off demonstration of the time-bending Xbox One exclusive shooter at GDC 2014 in August last year.
 
“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,” said Sam Lake, Creative Director at Remedy.
 
Quantum Break certainly isn’t the first title to have its release date pushed to 2016. We’ve already seen The Legend of Zelda Wii U and Uncharted 4: A Thief End have theirs shifted, as well as Homefront: The Revolution.
