The game was revealed with a teaser trailer during the Xbox One reveal event on 21 May 2013. While developing the game, developers Remedy Entertainment consulted a scientist lecturer who had worked at CERN who taught them how to write the plot in such a way that it adhered to current theoretical physics. The game was initially scheduled for release in 2014 but was subsequently delayed till 2015. Then it was further delayed to 2016 so as to make the final product more “polished” while not clashing with other Microsoft exclusives scheduled to be released in late 2015. Remedy has created a brand new engine to power Quantum Break called the “Northlight Engine”.
