After multiple delays and a bit of controversy surrounding the announcement that it would no longer be an X-Box exclusive, Quantum Break has finally “gone gold,” which means that production is complete and the game will soon be ready for distribution. Sam Lake, director for Quantum Break (and well-known as the writer for Max Payne and Alan Wake) made the announcement on Twitter earlier today, which you can view below.

The best news about this announcement is that it’s unlikely that the game will be delayed a third time.
Originally set for a 2014 release and eventually pushed back to 2015 and, eventually, 2016, Quantum Break follows the protagonist, Jack Joyce, on a time-bending adventure that is coupled with live-action digital “episodes” between bouts of gameplay. It’s a novel and unique twist on video game storytelling and many people are curious how it will all turn out – whether it will be precedent setting or a gimmick that never gets off the ground.
Quantum Break is due out on April 5. For more news about this release and all things single player as it becomes available, keep your eyes on Only Single Player and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@Official_OnlySP).
