Quantum Break is "officially" the best-selling new MS Studios published IP this generation - Quantum Break for Xbox One News
Quantum Break is now officially "the biggest-selling new Microsoft Studios published IP this generation," Aaron Greenberg, General Manager of Xbox Games Marketing, has announced.
Remedy's sci-fi action game was also the "#1 best-selling Xbox game around the world last week", and the "#1 most played new game on Xbox, worldwide".
"The level of excitement we have seen from our fans around the world for Quantum Break has been humbling," added Greenberg. "We want to thank the community for their support for helping us achieve this international success."
Sam Lake, Creative Director at Remedy Entertainment, commented: "Making Quantum Break has been a long journey. Creating a new AAA franchise is always a risk and a huge investment, but at Remedy we want to push ourselves, explore new ideas and realize new visions.
"It's wonderful to see gamers want that too. We're hugely grateful for the positive reception and glad to see that the story of Jack Joyce and Paul Serene resonates with so many players."
Microsoft says Quantum Break is just the start of its push for new IP, which also includes ReCore, Scalebound and Sea of Thieves. Earlier this week, a Microsoft spokesperson told VideoGamer.com that the company considers Ryse: Son of Rome, Sunset Overdrive, Zoo Tycoon and Screamride as Microsoft Studios current-gen new IPs.
