'Quantum Break' game news: Game goes gold


More than a month before its scheduled release date, Remedy Entertainment’s upcoming and much-awaited time-bending action game “Quantum Break” has gone gold, as announced by the developing studio itself.

Just recently, Remedy Entertainment creative director Sam Lake went to Twitter to announce the newest update for their upcoming game “Quantum Break.” According to the director, the game has officially gone gold. In his video post on Twitter, Lake celebrated the milestone in the game’s developments to the fans.

“It is my utmost pleasure to tell you that ‘Quantum Break’ has gone gold,” Lake said, with a glass and a bottle of champagne with him. “Cheers!”

In the gaming industry, when an upcoming title has been announced “gold,” it means that the game already reached the stage of development where it is now complete in terms of its retail version. Of course, games nowadays rarely do not come with additional content via paid or free DLCs for long periods of time even after release.

In other news, Microsoft executive Aaron Greenberg previously explained the decision to have the game get a PC version, following the announcement that it will be an Xbox One console exclusive.

“People should know: Xbox is a big priority and a huge commitment,” he said. “Please do not let the fact that we are also launching a game on the same day on Windows 10 change your perspective on the importance of the console business [or] our commitment to innovating on console.”

However, despite the game being released for Windows, Greenberg emphasized that Microsoft would continue to launch new Xbox One console exclusive items for the game.

As announced on the game’s official website, anyone who will pre-order the Xbox One version of the game will be getting a free copy for the Windows 10 version. The game supports cross-saving between platforms. The pre-order offer will last until April 4.

“Quantum Break” will launch on April 5.
