Our Favourite Stories From Quantum Break 's Development
Celebrating Quantum Break's Fifth Anniversary

It's been five years since Quantum Break launched on Xbox One and Windows 10, and to celebrate the incredible milestone, today we're looking back on the adventure and some of our favourite moments from its development and launch. Some of these are big events, whereas others are smaller tributes to the game. So, if you played Quantum Break when it came out and want to look back, or jumped onboard the community in recent years with Control and curious about the game, welcome! 

As the title was in development for about four years, this is by no means a comprehensive look back, just some of our favourite key posts and celebrations.

In addition to this article, we also have a competition running, so if you want to own some special Quantum Break merchandise goodness, make sure to check it out! We're giving away an anniversary prize pack containing a promotional t-shirt, a steel book, and Cam Rogers' Zero State novel.
