A lot has been said about Xbox One exclusive Quantum Break. Earlier this month Microsoft and developer Remedy officially announced that the time-bending game would be delayed due to a crowded holiday line-up for the Xbox One. Recent tweets from Remedy's writer Sam Like might imply a different reason though.
Remedy are known for delaying their games until they think its ready and polished. They should take their time and hopefully they bring Alan Wake 2 after this game.
A current gen Alan Wake would be sick!
Its not coming out 2015 its April now they probably got another year to polish the game maybe 10 months?
After E3 we will know for sure if Microsoft was right.
Uncharted delay changed everything Microsoft needs a game around that time to challenge it Tombraider is now gone. Scalebound and crackdown, Gears 4, Phantom dust are all 2016 games, but have know release time.
Sony is not going to have anything big for the holidays huge tripleAAA games have to be shown first after that they take at least a couple of years to come out to the public.
Microsoft will win holidays they will have more AAA exclusives of their own again
Sony and Microsoft will likely have a remaster or two for the Holidays and they will show off new games for late 2016- 2017 (2018) at E3
They did also say to polish the game up. Maybe cuz of the delay they realised they had more content they could ram in day one rather than dlc it later.
You need something for preseason. Quantum Break will benefit from missing the playoffs.
Crowded holiday? Halo and tomb raider? That's a crowded holiday?
