Publishing duties for the retail version of Quantum Break for the PC, developed by Remedy, are being handled by Nordic Games. It will contain five game discs, along with a Steam key, a behind-the-scenes book and Blu-Ray, a quick guide to the game, two posters and the game's soundtrack on CD. Both the retail and Steam editions of the game will have all of the post-release updates for Quantum Break.

While the Windows 10 version of Quantum Break used DirectX 12, a post on the new Steam and retail versions on Remedy's website shows those editions of the game will run on DirectX 11, which should allow for the game to be supported on Windows 7 and 8.1 PCs.
