Oh I did say for a blockbuster... Alan wake is not one... Release COD 2 years later on PC I doubt it will captivate many crowds.. Now I'm sure QB would sell on PC even later.. But will it be still hyped enough by then to motivate MS to invest money into a port since it's their IP is an other story... Alan wake didn't do so hot on xb porting it could only massively improve revenue... If QB does very well on console the marginal gain of PC port might not warrant the investment and more importantly dev time... Compared to making a QB2 or a AW2 even..
anyway I don't really care good for PC gamers if they do, heck they could even port or to PS I wouldn't care... It's just that I'm not so sure they will do it...

You are still confusing what you personaly want for the realities of the market. Plenty of people prefer PC gaming to consoles. On an aside COD sells like shit on PC even launching along side the console versions (the last entry to sell well on PC was 4 ever since then it has been on a steep decline) lol, yet Activision still put it out on PC every year. If Alan Wake made a profit after all those years on PC I see no reason why Quantum Break wouldn't, I mean Alan Wake was hardly a hit on X360 in fact it kinda bombed at launch and only a long tail and MS heavely bundling it really moved many copies by the end of 2011 the X360 version had sold an estimated 1.4m, then a few months after the PC version Remedy announced it had sold 2 million on both platforms combined and this year they said it had sold almost 3 million, so it probably sold almost as much (if not more) on PC as it did on X360. As for dev time well they outsourced the Alan Wake port so that isn't really an issue and even then the port took 5 months with a team of 5 devs hardly a large investment. They could pay for the port with the revenue from the Alan Wake PC sales.

I could see QB bombing on the X1(based of the history of Alan Wake). A PC port can come sooner than expected.

I say this because I read an article in 2012 from Remedy and actually pinned it up on my saved articles. Remedy nagged at Microsoft until it happened. Microsoft just made them wait until it sold on the console first. I think this will have the same outcome. Remedy is a very loyal brand to PC gamers. Nothing they create for Microsoft will ever truly stay exclusive because they are just too loyal. Here is a quotation and the article. I am almost certain Quantum Break is coming to PC.

"What I'm trying to say, to speak from the heart, PC gaming is part of Remedy's heritage, back from the first Death Rally that was made in a basement to Max Payne 1, which was made partly in a basement, and Max Payne 2. Announcing Alan Wake on PC was always an important factor for us."


Here is the difference.

Quantum Break is a MS IP and not a Remedy IP. When it came to Alan Wake Microsoft allowed them to get a different publisher for the game. I believe it was Nordic Games. All the games you mentioned were Remedy IP's.

This would be a 100 percent Microsoft decision that I don't think they will green light.

This article right here doesn't paint the picture of the game being a Microsoft IP but rather an investor. Remedy credits them saying the game couldn't have happened without their funding, but thats about it.

You could be right though, but even then I think they would still nag at Microsoft to allow them to do it no different than Alan Wake. 

Here you go.
