Tecmo’s heavily Gears of War-inspired, third-person shooter Quantum Theory has now gone from originally being a PC game, to a PlayStation 3 exclusive, to now being a multiplatform release. Tecmo announced today that its sci-fi action title in which players must blast their way through an ever-changing Living Tower will, in fact, be released on the Xbox 360, as well as the PS3, next spring.
Previously, the game’s developers have been quoted on several occasions as saying that the game’s PS3 exclusivity was tied to that console’s power and technical capabilities. Perhaps the less than favorable word-of-mouth the game has received up to this point convinced Tecmo that it might be a good idea to find a way to get it up and running on Xbox 360, too.
Or maybe they just realized Gears of War fans would be more likely to gravitate to a Gears of War clone (see: Dante’s Inferno and God of War). Either way, Xbox 360 fans...congratulations?
