De­vel­oper: Rem­edy En­ter­tain­ment Pub­lisher: Mi­crosoft Stu­dios Out: Q2

Although we’re al­ways wary of game/ TV crossovers, we’ve got to ad­mit we’re more than a lit­tle in­trigued by Rem­edy En­ter­tain­ment’s forth­com­ing Xbox One ex­clu­sive, Quantum Break. Not only does it look ab­so­lutely gor­geous, but it could po­ten­tially be a wa­ter­shed mo­ment in the way games and TV mix, blur­ring the lines be­tween the two medi­ums in a way that none be­fore have man­aged. As one of the Xbox One’s flag­ship exclusives, there’s a lot of weight of ex­pec­ta­tion on Quantum Break, but given the stu­dio’s pedi­gree and a back cat­a­logue that in­cludes the un­der­rated Alan Wake, we re­main con­fi­dent that it can live up to the pre- re­lease hype when it fi­nally launches. With a sto­ry­line that toys with our un­der­stand­ing of time as an en­tity and plenty of sci- fi twists and turns, there’s a lot to get ex­cited about here - and while the scope of the TV show re­mains largely un­known, there’s ev­ery pos­si­bil­ity that it could add a lot to the ex­pe­ri­ence.
