Etter lanseringen av Remedys actioneventyr viser det seg at PC-plattformen lider av flere problemer. Opplysningene kommer fra de teknologifrelste hos Digital Foundry, og rapporten deres er ikke oppløftende lesning for verken Microsoft eller de som hadde gledet seg til å spille "den beste versjonen" av spillet.
I tillegg til ustabil bildeoppdatering og for dårlig bildekvalitet snakker DF også om at spillet merkelig nok mangler en "Quit"-knapp, og at maskiner med Nvidia-komponenter opplever merkbart dårligere ytelse og rene krasjer. Her er den generelle uttalelsen:
"While we feel for Remedy, the reality is that Microsoft is still asking customers to fork out £49.99 for a game that just doesn't work as it should. When a PC equipped with the fastest hardware available falls short of the consistency offered by a far less capable console, you know there's something wrong. There's the sense that this game needed more focus, a lot more testing, and - in Nvidia's case - better drivers. But Microsoft has to bear responsibility too: several of the issues encountered here are a direct result of UWP's lack of features and quality, to the point where even downloading and installing the game is a trial.
Rapporten avsluttes med følgende uttalelse:
"We really enjoyed Quantum Break on Xbox One and the promise of using additional horsepower to smooth out the game's issues and play at 60fps was a huge lure in us fronting up the cash to buy the PC game, but the bottom line is that the PC version is a profound disappointment. The few improvements on offer cannot offset the major performance and image quality issues present in this port. What really stings is that some of these issues could be addressed by the community right now if not for the limitations of the Universal Windows Platform. We've expressed concerns over Microsoft's multi-platform initiative in the past and this situation is a perfect example of why. Until these limitations are removed from UWP, it's really hard to recommend purchasing any game that runs on it."
