Quantum Break
Remedy's last game, Alan Wake, was structured like a TV show Remedy

Remedy Entertainment's time-twisting third person shooter Quantum Break will be released on 5 April 2016. The announcement came during Microsoft's Xbox One press conference at the Gamescom 2015 trade show in Cologne this week.

Quantum Break was first announced at the Xbox One's initial reveal in spring 2013, and at the time was envisioned as a hybrid video game and TV series. After the significant backlash against the new console, Microsoft had to rethink their strategy and dropped their television focus.

Many believed that result would be big changes for Quantum Break but creative director Sam Lake took to the stage to reveal that the game would still blend its gaming parts with a live action aspect.

Little has been seen since the game's debut, and nothing since the first gameplay was shown at Gamescom 2014. The game is the latest original IP from Remedy, best known for creating the Alan Wake and Max Payne series.

Lake introduced the game's star Shawn Ashmore (best known for Animorphs playing Iceman in the X-Men seires). He'll be playing protagonist Jack Joyce.
