Remedy Entertainment has revealed that they are themselves working on the Windows 10 port of Quantum Break.
Remedy has not disclosed how long they have been working on the Windows 10 version, but they state that they are putting a lot of effort into it. This effort would apparently go into optimizing the game for Windows 10, including use of DirectX 12, but also Windows 10’s unique features, such as its ability to use and optimize graphics cards from different companies.
Remedy and Microsoft shared gameplay footage, that created concern with fans because of the graphical quality. Remedy had to clarify that they were showing off an earlier build designated as the press demo. The screen tearing issues and in cut scenes and the issues with Jack’s jacket physics have already been fixed, and the final product will look much better.
Since Remedy is making the port, it is hoped that they can make the best possible version of the game for Windows 10. Of course, they have the advantage of direct support from the operating system developers as well.
