You will have to wait a little longer to get Quantum Break on your Windows 7 or 8.1 PC
THQ Nordic has announced a delay in the release of the PC retail and Steam versions of Remedy and Microsoft's action game Quantum Break. Originally scheduled to be released on September 14, the PC version of the Xbox One-Windows 10 game will now be coming out on September 29.
THQ Nordic's press release stated:
This PC version will run on Windows 7 and 8.1 with DirectX11, unlike the Windows 10 version which uses DirectX 12. When the game is released to retail stores, it will have 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. Remedy says that any updates released to the Steam version of the game will also be made available to Windows 10 owners via a patch.
