Quantum Break for Xbox One

Quantum Break has been a long time on the making with many ups and downs. Gamers had their first sneak peek of the game close to three years ago, then in 2014, Microsoft announced the game release on 2015, but of course that didn’t happen. However, now Microsoft and Remedy Entertainment have some exciting news for Xbox One owners.  

Quantum Break has an official release date. It’ll launch on Xbox One on April 5, 2016.

Even better news, Microsoft has also announced that the game will be available for Windows 10 PC the same day it releases for Xbox. The biggest surprise is that the software giant also confirmed that those who pre-order the digital-copy of Quantum Break on Xbox One will get the version for Windows 10 for free.
