Following the announcement from Microsoft that Quantum Break will be coming to steam, many are speculating that more Microsoft published games could be coming to Steam. However, Microsoft has said that they would bring more of their titles to Steam, only where it makes sense.
Speaking with Dualshockers, Xbox marketing boss Aaron Greenberg said that the company has always brought its first party titles to Steam. He further added that Microsoft published games would come to Steam only where it makes sense.
Well, from a fist-party standpoint, over the years, we’ve always had titles in the Steam store, from Age of Empires, to Alan Wake, to even more recently we had titles like Ori and State of Decay. We have and we’ll continue to look where it makes sense to bring out titles to Steam.
He further said that Microsoft is excited to bring Quantum Break to Steam, as there are many fans on that platform. He said bringing Quantum Break to steam will enable the game to be more successful.
We’re excited to have brought Quantum Break there, we know there are fans of the Steam store, and costumers there that we can reach, that will enable the title to have even more success.
Quantum Break is not the only game Microsoft has brought to PC. The company seems to be determined to support PC gaming, as they are bringing some of the Xbox exclusive titles to PC like Gears of War 4 and Forza Horizon 3.
However, when Quantum Break was announced for Steam, those who purchased the game through Windows Store were confused about whether the updates for Steam version will arrive for Windows Store too. Thomas Poha has clarified that the updates will be available for both versions.
The Steam version of Quantum Break is scheduled to release on September 16, 2016 and will also support DirectX 11.
