Microsoft Studios announced today that Quantum Break will get a Steam release on September 14 and it will cost US$ 39.99. The game was initially released on Xbox One and the Windows 10 Store as an exclusive, so this is a welcome bit of news for PC gaming fans that don’t want to deal with the restrictions of the Universal Windows Platform system.
The Steam Store page mentions that the game will support Windows 7, as opposed to the original Windows Store release, which required Windows 10.
Press release follows:
Microsoft Studios and Remedy Entertainment are happy to announce that they are bringing their hit action game Quantum Break to even more Windows PC gamers on September 14 with the retail release of Quantum Break: Timeless Collector’s Edition and the digital release of Quantum Break for Steam.
Currently available for purchase in the Windows Store and Xbox Store, Quantum Break will be made available to more gamers across a number of operating systems when it hits Steam next month. This digital download will include all of the latest updates, a list of which can be found on the game’s official site. Starting today, both the Quantum Break: Timeless Collector’s Edition and Windows Store version are available for $39.99. This is the perfect time to grab a digital copy of Quantum Break for PC.
