Quantum Break PC Steam and Retail Release Delayed
Publisher says extra time is needed to master and manufacture the game.
"Due to additional time required for mastering and manufacturing the Quantum Break - Timeless Collector's Edition for retail, the decision has been made to move the release to September 29," reads a press release. "This concerns both the Steam version as well as the retail edition."
As previously detailed, these versions of Quantum Break will include "all of the latest updates" and will sell for $40/£40. The Timeless Collector's Edition will feature premium packaging, a making-of Blu-ray, an artbook, a soundtrack CD, an A3 poster, and a quick-start guide.
Quantum Break originally launched in April for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. The announcement of the Steam version today comes after Xbox boss Phil Spencer said more Steam releases of Microsoft-published games were on the way.
In GameSpot's Quantum Break review, Peter Brown awarded it a 6/10, saying its "gameplay is essentially divided equally between combat and hapless environment traversal."
He continued: "Getting to the end of Quantum Break can be an interesting ride at times, but no matter how impressive the combat is, or how great the game looks, there's no getting around the fact that it's driven by a story with limited appeal and hindered by disappointing design decisions."
