Following a title update from a few days ago on Xbox One, Quantum Break is receiving a significant patch on PC today, addressing several problems from launch.

PC players have been experiencing a bunch of performance issues such as frame rate and crashes. The lack of a quit button was also a concern, but with this new update, it will be added to the main menu. Fixes in certain acts are also included, such as a "collision on time machine corridor to prevent players accidentally falling to their death."
