If you're on the PC version, Remedy offered a couple of updates on their efforts to repair the Windows 10 version of the game, which of course is delivered via UWP on the Windows 10 Store.
"Microsoft has identified a Windows 10 memory management issue which may cause Quantum Break to crash on some GPUs. This crash is seen more frequently at higher game settings. Microsoft plans to fix this in a future Windows Update."
"We are aware of the cloud save issue causing loss of game progress on Xbox One. Even though we haven't been able to fully reproduce the bug, we're addressing this issue in the next title update. To avoid losing savegames, please quit the game before turning off your console."
Remedy has previously explained how the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) is the cause of some of the game's issues, including the inability to use G-sync and Freesync monitors, the inability to disable V-sync, and the absence of full-screen exclusive mode. Some of these features are planned to arrive in May, which will bring games deployed via UWP closer to the experience of a traditional Win32 executable, providing developers utilize the new features of course.
