Alan Wake dev reveals Xbox One-exclusive Quantum Break

Remedy Entertainment's latest game claims to "blur the line between television and gameplay."

Alan Wake and Max Payne developer Remedy Entertainment today announced Quantum Break, an all-new game that will be exclusive to Microsoft's just-announced Xbox One system.

According to its announcement, Quantum Break "blurs the line between television and gameplay, integrating the two into one seamless, uniquely immersive experience."

Remedy Entertainment has been hiring for next-generation game development since March 2012. The studio's most recent project was last year's Alan Wake's American Nightmare.

Microsoft will release 15 Xbox One-exclusives during the platform's first year. Of the 15 new games, 8 will be all-new franchises.

You have seen the toughest ship of all time, it doesn't break nor blend when smashing a huge bridge. In any case, let us wait until E3 to see what is this games or movie or tv show  really is about. MS, there is still some time to rethink the xbox design, there is still time to evaluate kinect as a mandatory accesory... if not, then you are screwed all over

It's sad that Microsoft has its reigns on Remedy.  Can't wait to see them spread their wings and be with a publisher that will let their full potential be realized.

It's it a game or is it a movie? If it's a game, how much of it is playable? The trailer was confusing as heck. They should leave the film aspect out of the game all together and just concentrate on the game itself. Most needs to be seen though.

That has to be -- hands-down -- the worst trailer I've ever seen.  LMFAO.  It provided me no incentive to play the game and many to not play it...mission accomplished???

I don't think the real people are part of the game. I think it was just something to set the scene because they didn't have a lot of gameplay to show.

This game looks incredible! Remedy is definitely one of the top developers there is, they just take forever making a game. I'd like to see Remedy make a new Time Splitters game. They're one of the few studios that could do it justice.

The crash looked cool but no idea what its all about. I guess we will just have to wait and see. Not getting my hopes up though.

I wasn't immersed at all. I thought the incorporation of live action with in-game action looked quite off.

Oh right. This is THAT game which the live action footage. Seriously??

But there's no line between Television and Gameplay.

Just as there's no line between Movies and Gardening.

One is a term that refers to a certain piece of technology that lets you see something being broadcast from afar.

 The other is a term used to describe mechanics, tools and objectives for a game.


Also, what excactly was that? A vague movie trailer? No wait, sorry, a vague movie teaser? What did this clip of some.. thing... happening have to do with gaming? Showing that they can use live-action acting in games? We've had that since Myst.

is it wrong for me to wish that Remedy should just made Alan Wake 2 rather than this? I guess i need to wait for E3 to find out what this game really is. I hope it won't be MGS4 with live action cinematic.

I feel like punching my wall. I'm not even mad. I'm just sick of this bullshit. So I'll just say this politely: Microsoft, please stop ruining video games. Thank you.

Just imagine if movies were like this, and showed stick figure animations for their teaser trailer.  Thats the equivelent of this to the actual game.  May as well as just not released this and told people it has a girl, a bridge, and time manipulation.

I hate kid actors...

That said, I also don't care for watching TV & playing the same game, so not too excited for this. On its own it sounds like an interesting concept for a game, but having it all tie into a series?

Yeah, no thanks.

But technically, console games are already on the television :P

@Troika1 I actually thought Sony's hardware teaser was worse. QB didn't even show any game play. It was mostly a teaser trailer. Not sure why they are including film however.

@Mayleene The game is not done yet, so we'll see. People said the same thing about Heavy Rain when it was first shown. Everyone thought it was more of a movie then a game. I'd like to see more of the actual game play. Really, none of the game play was even shown.

@Mayleene what is epic fail about QB? game still in development.

What's wrong with playing X1 exclusives?

or do you just call everything epic fail that is not catered to your taste like the world revolves around you?

@LeonRedfield334 they can't. They can't find anyone willing to publish it and they don't want to do something that doesn't meet the level of quality they want.

@Tiwill44 How exactly are they doing that? you literally know nothing about the consoles coming library... in fact this isn't even a gameplay trailer it's a teaser... I feel like 90% of teasers are lame.. your just being a hater no crime has been committed.. wait for E3 then maybe you can actually talk legitimate crap that's actually well informed

@blackace You miss my point.  "Exclusive to XboxOne".  Who's buying an XboxOne?  How many of this ONE game do you think they are going to sell?  It (the game) is going to be a failure because it is EXCLUSIVE to XBone!

@uglypinkmoose @Tiwill44 Problem is, they DO call this a gameplay trailer. Games are becoming interactive movies. All they care about is graphics and cinematic experiences and 'muh feels'. This is bad.

And don't tell me you're okay with how the conference was 1/3 about television, 1/3 about EA sports and 1/3 about call of duty.

@SythisTaru @Tiwill44 How is Nintendo ruining video games? the Wii U is backwards compatible, plays used games, has free online and there are many actual games coming up for it. It had a shitty launch, sure, but it will only get better. And having a shitty launch isn't ruining video games, it was just bad for Nintendo as a company.

@Mayleene @troll_eat_troll Games not done yet. That's like saying The Last Guardian is epic fail. 5 years and all we saw for a CGI movie with no game play. Let's wait for the game to be complete before we judge. M-kay?
