Remedy Entertainment is a legendary development studio best known for the Max Payne series and wowed survival horror fans with the release of Alan Wake. Originally, Alan Wake launched as an exclusive Xbox 360 title, and eventually made its way onto the PC platform. The long wait was worth it though due to the impressive array of graphical enhancements and good optimization. Back in November, the company’s co-founder, Sam Lake commented about Quantum Break’s current exclusivity and hoped it would eventually end up on the PC platform.
In an interesting twist, the Brazil Advisory Rating Board has rated Quantum Break for PC in addition to the Xbox One version. Clearly, this doesn’t mean the game is suddenly going launch on PC but it raises hopes about a PC version being considered. Perhaps, Microsoft is going to adopt a similar approach to Rise of the Tomb Raider and keep the game a console exclusive for some time while offering a PC release fairly quickly. I’d love to see Quantum Break on PC and I’m sure this sentiment is shared by the majority of PC gamers. Sadly, there are some Xbox One owners out there yearning for every exclusive to remain only on the Xbox One. I really do not understand this mindset, and it’s purely an act of selfishness to justify their purchase.
Given the success of Alan Wake on PC, it makes sense to launch Quantum Break in a similar fashion. Although, I’m hoping it doesn’t take as long. The Xbox One’s current market position is quite weak and a major disappointment for Microsoft. As the situation continues, they might become more open to the PC platform and release titles simultaneously. Although, this is a rather optimistic viewpoint. Whatever the case, it looks likely that Quantum Break will arrive on PC but there’s no indication when this will happen.
