Microsoft has confirmed that the upcoming closure of Xbox Entertainment Studios, the division in charge of creating original programming for Xbox, will not impact Remedy Entertainment’s live-action TV show and game Quantum Break.
“[Quantum Break] will be released next year and the game and show both remain on track,” a Microsoft spokesperson told Polygon. “The news of Xbox Entertainment Studios has not impacted our progress and we’re excited to share more details of Quantum Break at Gamescom in August.”
In Quantum Break, players take on the role of Jack Joyce as he tries to stop the evil corporation Monarch Solutions who are creating fractures that, if left unchecked, will lead to the end of time itself.
Microsoft official confirmed yesterday that it plans to close Xbox Entertainment Studios “in the coming months” as part of a larger set of cuts within the company. Not all programming will be affected though, Steven Spielberg’s Halo television show, Ridley Scott’s Halo: Nightfall series, and the E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial documentary Signal to Noise are all still on course.
Quantum Break is set to launch in 2015 exclusively on Xbox One.
