Quantum Break Unaffected by Microsoft Entertainment Studios’ Closure
The news about job cuts at Microsoft have worried at least thousands of people but that is not counting people who are looking forward to projects being handled by people who were working at Microsoft Entertainment Studios, like Quantum Break, Halo TV and Signal to Noise.
Well, you might have been worried about a lot of things in the light of the new developments, but let Microsoft assure you that the development of Quantum Break need not be among the things you are worrying about.
According to an official statement given by a Microsoft representative recently, Quantum Break ‘will be released next year and the game and show both remain on track.’
When Phil Spencer recently clarified that the decision taken by the company would not affect things like Halo TV and Halo Nightfall, it gave rise to questions about other things that were connected with Microsoft Entertainment Studios which he didn’t address to back them.
It is now clear however, since Microsoft is assuring that ‘the news of Xbox Entertainment Studios has not impacted our progress and [they are] excited to share more details of Quantum Break at Gamescom in August.’
If you have missed out on what is going on in Redmond, Satya Nadella has announced that they will lay off at least 18000 of their employees in a rigorous scheme of slimming down the company and restructuring it.
Under the same program it was confirmed today that the video programming section of Xbox will also be closed down in the upcoming months.
Quantum Break was originally announced in May last year and is supposed to be a cinematic action game. It is being made in collaboration between Microsoft and Remedy and is expected to come out in 2015. Watch out for Gamescom 2014 though!
