Quantum Break not an Xbox One Exclusive, coming to PC on April 5th

Quantum Break has been confirmed for the PC, coming April 5th just after the Xbox One release

Quantum Break was originally touted as an Xbox One exclusive when it was announced in 2014, but that's changed as it's now been announced to be coming to the PC on April 5th.


Microsoft and Remedy Entertainment are wanting to "empower gamers" to enjoy whatever platform they want, within reason of course, so the extreme time manipulating game will be coming to Windows 10 as well, and if you pre-order on the Xbox One, you'll get the PC version for free. Any version of the game will net you a digital download token that you can use at the Windows Store.

They've also just announced the Quantum Break special bundle, that includes a snow white 500GB Xbox One with the game and the extra free Alan Wake games. Why 500GB when 1TB could easily be included? That's a good question, especially considering the increasing size of games.

Last month the Brazilian rating board accidentally outed the PC version of Quantum Break on their website, so we knew it was coming, we just didn't know exactly when. In August Phil Spencer said that it was possible to see these Xbox One exclusives come to the PC, though once they're finished. It's great to see their commitment to PC gaming, despite wanting to naturally capitalize on Xbox One sales.
