"Quantum Break" Removed from Xbox Game Pass Due to Licensing Issues
Due to licensing issues, Quantum Break, the 2016 Xbox One and PC video game developed by Remedy Entertainment, has been removed from Xbox Game Pass. This news was announced by Xbox's Phil Spencer on Twitter, and players have been disappointed by the decision.
The reason for the removal of Quantum Break from the Xbox Game Pass is that the game's licenses have expired. This means that while the game still exists on the platform, it cannot be updated or patched. As a result, it is not possible to keep the game available for Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
The game was originally released in 2016 as an Xbox One exclusive but later received a PC port in 2017. It was praised for its innovative narrative structure and unique blend of third-person shooter action and time-manipulation mechanics. Despite its positive reception, the game was not a commercial success, and its removal from Xbox Game Pass is likely to hurt its potential for success further.
Players who already own the game can still play it, but those who were hoping to download it through Xbox Game Pass will be disappointed by the news. It is unclear if the game will ever return to Xbox Game Pass, and players must wait to see if the licensing issues can be resolved.
