Yesterday Remedy celebrated some incredible news and an impressive milestone in their company career, as Quantum Break has now gone gold.
For those who don't know, a title going gold pretty much means that everything is finalised and finished, and that there is a complete game from start to finish out there and waiting to be published. It's now out of Remedy's hands and they are officially completed. It also confirms that the game will be out on 5th April as promised.
While Remedy has celebrated numerous titles going gold in the past, this one is even more special. Quantum Break blends numerous mediums together, and introduces a new style of gaming. On it's own it would be an ambitious game, but coupled with the live action television show and having them stay within the continuity, is an incredible achievement. No project is without challenge, especially in the video game industry, but the game had presented new obstacles and opportunities to learn that no other developer has had to face. That's awesome.
A huge congratulations to all at Remedy for going gold with Quantum Break.

Finishing a game like Quantum Break takes a gargantuan effort that is hard to put into words. So's my respect for the team I work with.— Mikko Rautalahti (@MikkiRMD) February 19, 2016
It's not just the long days -- and the days have been so very, very long -- they have put in, it's the passion and commitment.— Mikko Rautalahti (@MikkiRMD) February 19, 2016
We're not a big team by modern AAA dev standards. A game like this at our size is an exceptional challenge. It takes exceptional people.— Mikko Rautalahti (@MikkiRMD) February 19, 2016
