Microsoft Game Studios and Remedy Entertainment have this week announced a delay in the release schedule of their upcoming science-fiction third-person-shooter video game Quantum Break. Intended to bridge the Xbox One's video game and TV streaming technologies, the title will merge interactive game-play sequences with animated TV episodes, with the narrative arcs of both the former and the latter altering depending on the player's choices.
Sounds rather compelling, yes? Well, it turns out that creating a seamless time-travelling and medium-defying video game experience isn't quite as simple as you might think. No official reasoning has been provided for Quantum Break's impending absence from Microsoft's 2014 release schedule for their Xbox One console, but we'd suspect that much like Ready At Dawn's The Order: 1886, Remedy have remained noticeably quiet regarding the product of late due to unexpected difficulties encountered over the course of their development cycle. On the plus side, though it'll skip E3 2014, the game will appear as part of the publisher's Gamescom line-up come August, and you can be sure that its marketing campaign will comprise of more than one inspired viral trailer closer to release day- until then, check out the latest video preview below.
Quantum Break warps exclusively onto Xbox One in 2015.
