Quantum Break Will Arrive on Steam After All

Even though its developers initially stated that Quantum Break will remain a Windows Store exclusive, it looks like they had a change of heart and decided to release the game on Steam after all. Quantum Break will hit Steam on September 14, and it will apparently support DirectX 11 as well as older operating systems such as Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. The announcement was accompanied by an official statement and a list of minimum and recommended requirements.

“Currently available for purchase in the Windows Store and Xbox Store, Quantum Break will be made available to more gamers across a number of operating systems when it hits Steam next month. This digital download will include all of the latest updates, a list of which can be found on the game’s official site. Starting today, both the Quantum Break: Timeless Collector’s Edition and Windows Store version are available for $39.99. This is the perfect time to grab a digital copy of Quantum Break for PC.”

However, the interesting part is that the Windows 10-exclusive version of the game will not receive any more patches, which means that it won’t likely receive DX11 support either. That’s because the team now wants to focus on the Steam version of the game, which admittedly has a much higher chance at success.

If you ask me, Remedy should have made the game available on Steam from the start, but it’s still nice to see that they’ve come to their senses. Below you will find a complete list of requirements for the Steam version of Quantum Break.
