Quantum Break arrives in April.
Quantum Break, the upcoming time-bending Xbox One exclusive that tells its story across a game and TV show, is almost ready for its debut. Thomas Puha, a marketing manager at developer Remedy Entertainment, said on Twitter that the game is “so close” to being finished, with the team pushing hard to wrap things up.
“Not too much time left,” Puha said (via VG247). “Quantum Break is so close to being done. Team is getting pretty tired, but inspiring to see the camaraderie.”
Asked if this meant Remedy was in “crunch mode,” Puha explained that this is a safe assumption to make. “A large part of our dev team has been working very hard for a while now. Let’s put it that way,” he said.
Crunch is an industry term for when staffers spend what might be considered an unreasonable and unhealthy amount of time in the office to finish off a project.
Quantum Break was originally scheduled to launch on Xbox Onein 2015. However, it was later delayed and is now due to arrive in April 2016. The game story is told across the game and a TV show, which stars X-Men‘s Shawn Ashmore and Dominic Monaghan from The Lord of the Rings.
