Microsoft head of publishing Shannon Loftis said in a statement that the company already has the "strongest games lineup in Xbox history" with games like Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Fable Legends, Forza Motorsport 6, and "more we'll announce in the coming months."
“With so many games launching this year, moving Quantum Break to 2016 extends our incredible portfolio into next year with a monster new IP," she said.
This move isn't all that surprising. After all, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer said previously that Microsoft's 2015 lineup was so stuffed with great games that the company might need to move something. "I honestly don't know that we can actually ship all the stuff that thinks it's trying to ship [in holiday 2015]," he said back in November 2014.
As Loftis alluded to, Microsoft is likely to have more announcements in store for E3 2015, including possibly some news about Gears of War.
Microsoft also confirmed Thursday that Quantum Break's live-action TV show counterpart remains in development following the closure of Xbox Entertainment Studios last year.
Remedy creative director Sam Lake also shared his thoughts on the Quantum Break delay, saying the extra development time will allow the studio to further polish the game.
“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," he said.
Previously, Lake spoke of Quantum Break as the "ultimate Remedy game."
