Microsoft and Nordic Games has today announced that Quantum Break is officially coming to Steam, ending the game's exclusivity on the Windows Store. 

The Steam version of the game will release on September 14th, including all of the updates that are available to the Windows 10 Store version, though Microsoft did not confirm whether or not Quantum Break's Steam version will be a UWP application or Win32 application.  

PC gamers will soon no longer need to be forced to use the Windows 10 Store in order to play Quantum Break, which is a huge step. Hopefully, more of Microsoft's future first party games will be coming to Steam and other online storefronts in the future.

Now the price of the PC version of the game has been decreased to $39.99, meaning that all of those who did not play the game before will now be able to play it after paying a reduced price and with some unique collectables if they buy the new "Timeless Collector's Edition". 

Right now we have asked Microsoft, and Nordic Games whether or not the game will be a UWP application or not. We will update you on this information if/when we learn more.
