Quantum Break Release Date Announced. Hollywood Cast Revealed (Xbox One)

Quantum Break has a release date of April 5, 2016, exclusively for Xbox One. The long-in-making third-person action shooter is developed by Remedy, and is the follow-up to previous hits like Alan Wake & the Max Payne series that fuses a videogame with a live-action TV show whose cast has finally been revealed.

Check out this “Time Is Power” trailer for Quantum Break, which shows off both gameplay & live-action footage.


Quantum Break is part hard-hitting video game, part thrilling in-game live-action show. Your in-game choices will affect the outcome of the fast-paced fusion between game and show, illustrating one story perceived in many ways for a completely unique entertainment experience.

Play the game to understand the heroes… and watch the in-game show to discern the villains.

I am so excited for Quantum Break!

This game looks absolutely awesome. And I adore the mix of live-action TV show with a videogame! It’s amazing that this has not been done before (to this extent). I remember Alone in the Dark 2008 tried and massively failed at making it seem like a TV show.

This is the fullbore experience, and with such a high-quality cast of actors, I have hope that this game will go far.

This is a huge exclusive for Microsoft and the Xbox One. With how long the game has been delayed, I am sure it will be a massive success & be polished to the t by the time it hits next year.
