Xbox to Focus on First-Party Franchises Now More Than Ever

Remedy Entertainment’s Thomas Puha revealed that “Quantum Break” will surprise its players!


Phil Spencer took to his Twitter, as he is wont to do, to discuss exactly what makes the backwards compatibility on the Xbox One work, and answer questions and concerns users may have had about it. Not much information was given but based on his tweet from July 31, he said, “I’ve watched the live action stuff and it’s good. I think you’ll be happy”, Spencer replied.

Despite being in its early stage, it looks like the new Xbox One to Windows 10 game streaming feature will equally please both casual as well as the most demanding gamers.

And with the confirmation from Puha of “Quantum Break“, many are wondering when the release date of the game will be.

We’ll also be reporting on events as they happen on, and be sure to tune into VideoGamerTV for special editions of The Miller Report direct from the Gamescom show floor. Spencer said the company would love to give fans the ability to do so, including mouse and keyboard support on the Xbox One.

We know we are seeing it at Gamescom tomorrow though, and Xbox boss Phil Spencer has hinted we will finally know when it is out too.


Microsoft has promised announcements for numerous games that were glossed over back at E3. At the time, Microsoft Head of Publishing Shannon Loftis noted that “with so many games launching this year, moving Quantum Break to 2016 extends our incredible portfolio into next year with a monster new IP”.
