Remedy wants “as many people to enjoy it as possible.”
Not everyone was glad to hear that Xbox One headliner Quantum Break will also be available on PC, a reaction that developer Remedy is a bit torn over.
“I was slightly confused by that reaction,” Remedy’s Sam Lake shared with Eurogamer. “I do understand people being passionate, and feeling ownership on their preferred platform. I do understand that. At the same time, as the maker of a game like this, we just hope we can get as many people to enjoy it as possible. From my perspective, adding another option of playing the game, it’s all positive.”
Lake went on to explain that the developer was “rooting” for a PC version, especially considering the team has released so many titles on the platform.
“We do have a lot of fans on the PC side, and going back in Remedy history, PC’s always been part of it. We’re really happy to get an Alan Wake PC version out there as well. But obviously because they’re business oriented decisions, you can’t talk about them until the final agreement has been set. I was really happy to get that to be a part of this.”
“At the end of the day, that passion in the fanbase, it’s important to us,” Lake continued. “Myself, I’m just happy to play these things, to be able to create them so people can play them.”
