Most PC gamers were probably excited to hear that Quantum Break would also come on PC systems, but it seems that there is a small catch around this story.
While it’s not really a massive problem for most users, the title will not be sold on Steam. This was confirmed by Aaron Greenberg (works at Xbox’s marketing department) during Major Nelson’s last podcast:
“Quantum Break on Windows 10 will be a Windows Store exclusive”
This does not come from nowhere, since Microsoft would obviously want to release their first party titles through their own platform. They did mention though that they do not plan to compete with Steam, but Quantum Break as a big and exclusive release is obviously an entirely different story.
Greenberg also stated that Xbox achievements will be transferred between Windows 10 and Xbox One and the games will obviously share save files across platforms.
Remedy Entertainment’s heavy hitter will be released on PC in April 15, on the same day its Xbox One counterpart will be also available in stores.
