Quantum Break PC crashes waiting on Windows 10 update

A Quantum Break update is available for Xbox One, as Remedy promised. Download it immediately to take advantage a slew of fixes. This is the good news.

Now for the bad news: unfortunately, we don't have an ETA on a Quantum Break update for PC, although Remedy PR manager Thomas Puha said on Twitter it'll be "hopefully not too long" before Title Update 2 rolls out to Windows 10.

It gets worse, though. On the subject of problems with the PC port of Quantum Break, the Quantum Break State of the Game post on the Remedy forums has been updated with a notice about crashes experienced with some GPUs. Unfortunately, this isn't something Remedy can fix.

"Microsoft has identified a Windows 10 memory management issue which may cause Quantum Break to crash on some GPU," the developer said.

"This crash is seen more frequently at higher game settings. Microsoft plans to fix this in a future Windows Update."

Goodness knows how long that'll take. Turn your graphics settings down in the meantime, I guess.

Xbox One patch notes follow. We can probably expect many of these fixes to be present in the PC patch whenever it arrives.
