Remedy Entertainment and Microsoft have pushed away all the negative remarks they got by the critics with impressive Quantum Break sales. The game has now become the best new IP launch in the life of Xbox One!
This was confirmed by Microsoft itself a couple of hours ago, it took the game less than a week to do that.
Quantum Break Sales Top Every Other New Xbox One IP
In the past, games like Ryse: Son of Rome and Sunset Overdrive have been one of the best selling new IP of this generation, but Remedy’s time-bending title has managed to beat them all to become “biggest selling, new Microsoft Studios IP this generation.”
Senior category manager at Xbox Studios, Jon Edney, has thanked the fans while announcing the accomplishment:
We’re delighted that Quantum Break has been so well received by fans and critics, it’s a testament to the hard work, ambition and commitment of the team at Remedy that the game is already surpassing expectations. The game has already built up a passionate fanbase and we look forward to seeing and hearing about their experiences in Riverport.
