Quantum Break will not be coming to Steam - Windows Store Exclusive

 

Quantum Break will not be releasing on Steam, Origin or Uplay but will be a Windows Store Exclusive title. The game will only support the DirectX 12 API, meaning that only newer GPUs form both AMD and Nvidia will be supported. 

This was confirmed by Aaron Greenberg, the head of Xbox Games marketing,  on the MajorNelson Podcast.

 

So, Quantum Break on Windows 10 is a Windows store exclusive.

 

Quantum Break will not be coming to Steam - Windows Store Exclusive  

The game is stated to require a minimum of an AMD Hex-core Piledriver CPU or a minimum of an Intel Haswell i5 CPU, meaning that gamers will need a lot of CPU computing power in order to play this game. The game will also require a minimum of 8GB of system memory and 2GB of VRAM. 

In the mid way recommended specifications the game now recommends a higher clocked Intel Haswell i5 or it's AMD equivalent and GPUS with at least 4GB of VRAM, like the GTX 970 or the R9 390.

 

Remedy Updates Quantum Break PC System Requirements

 

As a Windows Store exclusive title mans that Microsoft will be the sole digital distributor for the title, meaning that they will be getting all the money that comes from selling the title. Right now most developers have to give around 30% of the money generated from sales games on the platform, so Microsoft is expected to get a lot of revenue from this Windows Store Exclusivity deal.

Microsoft is publishing it, so they get to choose where to sell it. It is a simple choice for them really, more money for their parent company.Quote

Yeah but the Windows Store is already integrated as part of Windows10 so I'd hope it's relatively painless, either way you may have to activate it with the store like how a some Steam disk copies do (CoD, etc).Quote
