Quantum Break is out and this latest game from the makers of Max Payne and Alan Wake is selling pretty well on Xbox One

After many, many years of development Quantum Break is finally out and this mashup of game and TV show is gorgeous looking, explosive and involves watching a lot of story happening without very much involvement from the player.

If you want to know more you can read our full review but the game itself has been performing well since its release last week, which will be good news for developers Remedy who have been on it for a long time. The game is at the top of the UK charts on Xbox One this week, making it the most popular title around. Those figures only account for Xbox One (it also launched on the PC) and only include boxed copies - doesn't it seem like we should be able to track digital purchases too by now?

The info also says that Quantum Break only just beat second title Dirt Rally by a matter of 139 copies, though the latter game also released on PlayStation 4 and PC. These early sales figures bode well for the format of Quantum Break but it will be hard for Remedy to really capitalise on it as they don't have any DLC planned and they generally take a long time between releases - with six years between Max Payne 2 and Alan Wake and another half decade before Quantum Break arrived.
