I'm as big a fan of the Alt+F4 rage quit as much the next gamer. Hell, if you grew up playing Counter-Strike and Quake it's practically a rite of passage. Dota and League of Legends fans know the feeling of a healthy abandonment, and there's plenty of games that just need a speedy abort when things start to break.
But Quantum Break is a different kettle of fish — because the developers forgot to add a quit button to the main menu.
It's astonishing that a developer who cut their teeth on the PC with the Max Payne series and Death Rally, a developer whose game became a cornerstone of benchmarking tools, didn't add a quit button to the main menu.
But that's remarkably what happened with the PC release of Quantum Break. Fortunately, they've confirmed in their latest status update that they have listened to "popular demand" and that they'll be adding an option to the main menu.
"For now, similar to all Windows 10 apps, you will need to use Alt-F4 or move the mouse cursor to top right corner of the window to the see the X icon, which you can click to exit the game."
Quitting Windows 10 applications by hovering over one corner of the screen has always been a nightmare — it was crappy in Windows 8 too — so it's a bit staggering that the PC build shipped without such a basic option.
Remedy also added that they'll be adding more graphics tweaks to the PC build, including the ability to turn certain effects. "We also want to give PC gamers more choice and this will come in a future update."
