Been waiting to hear more about the Xbox One exclusive action drama Quantum Break? Well, here’s something new. It’s not much, but it is something.

Sam Lake, creative director at Remedy Entertainment, talks up the next game from the makers of Max Payne and Alan Wake in the clip above. Lake explains how the TV show portion of Quantum Break’s split offering will focus on the evil corporation screwing with spacetime, while the game follows the storyline of Jack Chance, the hero trying to stop them. All we get as far as gameplay is about a half-minute of quick cuts towards the end of the video. Lake’s comments seem to indicate that Quantum Break won’t be spotlighted at E3, waiting instead to show off another glimpse at Gamescom in August. Gonna be a long wait… unless you can travel through time.

Quantum Break will release on Xbox One in 2015.


  • Aw, damn. I thought I’d decided which next-gen (edit: console) to start saving up for… but I want this too!

      • Hahaha, I’m only going to be able to afford one console… and even then, it won’t be for at least a year.

        • I want to play this too, but Remedy eventually released Alan Wake on PC as well, so here’s hoping this will follow that lead!

  • This looks really good but alas, after Watch Dogs I don’t know what to believe from these teasers anymore.

    • x2 on this, however watch dogs teasers were last E3 before either console was finalised and shipped. Hopefully given they’ve had the One for a year now in finalised specs this shouldn’t be too unrealistic.

  • This looks great, and I love Remedy games. Max Payne 2 is probably my favourite game.

    I have all my appendages crossed that it will eventually hit PC, because I have no interest in getting a console. My PS3 has basically been used as a DVR for the last 5 years.

  • While I have a lot of faith in Remedy, I’m much more concerned about their ability to get the TV part right than the game bit.

    I can’t imagine there’s too many gamers out there who’ve had positive experiences when real-life acting and games have collided.
    I keep thinking of the terribly cheesey FMV adventure games of the 90’s.

    While the idea of a cross between Max Payne and Mad Dog McCree sounds like the best thing ever…… no wait, that would be the best thing ever.
    Go this game!

    • The real life acting in the Alan Wake DLC’s and American Nightmare were all very well done IMO. If i had to trust one developer to get a TV show done right in a game, it would be Remedy.

  • So PlayStation has Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, is this Microsoft’ shot at these type of games?
