Quantum Break is an exclusive title for Microsoft’s Ecosystem. It was released earlier this year for the Xbox One and PC. The PC Version of the game wasn’t as successful as the Xbox One version due to the bugs and crashes on the PC. Fast Forward to August, and Microsoft confirmed the push of Quantum Break onto Steam. Xbox’s Marketing Head Aaron Greenberg was asked a series of questions in which he answered and talked about Microsoft’s strategy of pushing Quantum Break onto Steam.
Here’s what he had to say about the push of Quantum Break onto Steam:
“Well, from a first party standpoint, over the years, we’ve always had titles in the Steam store, from Age of Empires, to Alan Wake, to even more recently we had titles like Ori and State of Decay. We have and we’ll continue to look where it makes sense to bring out titles to Steam. We’re excited to have brought Quantum Break there, we know there are fans of the Steam store, and costumers there that we can reach, that will enable the title to have even more success.
So we’ll continue to look to support bringing our titles to Steam when and where it’ll make sense.”
According to the interview of the editor, Xbox’s Marketing Head confirmed at reason of why they are trying to push the game onto Steam and also explained their previous games listed on Steam. They also made it clear that they’ll only push their games to Steam “where it’ll make sense”. However, we shouldn’t be looking forward to Microsoft about bringing more titles to steam, especially due to their “Play Anywhere” program which will allow Xbox and PC Players to access their data across both platforms.
