Quantum Break – Win10 version will not receive any new patches, DX11 support unlikely coming to it

Yesterday, we informed you about Quantum Break coming to Steam. This Steam version will be a Win32 application and will support both DX11 and DX12. Naturally, we wondered whether Remedy would add support for DX11 in Quantum Break’s Win10 version (that is currently sold via Windows Store). And according to Remedy’s Head of Communications, Thomas Puha, that seems unlikely.

As Thomas said when he was asked Sabin Figaro complained about the game’s performance issues.

So there you have it everyone. It appears that Remedy will focus on the Win32 version of Quantum Break (instead of the already released UWP version). Still, it’s kind of sad that there won’t be support for DX11 in the Win10 version.

What’s also interesting here is that Remedy has been working on this Win32 version of Quantum Break for a while. Not only that, but Quantum Break may, actually, run better under DX11.
