Quantum Break Steam Release Delayed to September 29
Highlights
  • Originally planned for September 14
  • New release date is September 29
  • Available via Steam, Windows Store and on retail

Remedy Entertainment's Quantum Break was due for a Steam and new retail release on September 14, but has been delayed by two weeks. The game’s PC distributor THQ Nordic announced on Friday that game will now be available September 29.

“Due to additional time required for mastering and manufacturing the Quantum Break - Timeless Collector’s Edition for retail, the decision has been made to move the release to September 29,” the company wrote on its website. “This concerns both, the Steam version, as well as the retail edition.”

Quantum Break’s re-release is important because the new version makes it compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8, ending its Windows 10 (and Xbox One) exclusivity put in place since its release back in April on the Windows Store.

If you missed the earlier news, Quantum Break also received a price cut, coming down from $59.99 to $39.99, which means a drop from Rs. 4,500 to Rs. 2,552 here in India on the Windows Store. The game still isn’t up for pre-order via Steam though.

THQ Nordic also reiterated what potential buyers of the retail version can expect:

  • Premium packaging
  • 5 Game Discs (onetime Steam key validation required)
  • Making Of Blu-ray
  • Making Of Book (where an Art Book meets a Making-Of)
  • 1 Soundtrack CD (Audio-CD)
  • 2 A3 Poster (one double-sided print)
  • Quickstart Guide

You can also pre-order the Quantum Break: Timeless Collector’s Edition via Amazon US.

The game is already ready, as evinced by Nvidia’s release of new drivers this week that include optimisations for Quantum Break’s new DirectX 11 version, as opposed to the original Windows 10-only version that ran on DirectX 12.

You’ll just have to wait a bit more so everyone can play at the same time, that’s all.
