TeamKill Media have confirmed that their cosmic horror first-person shooter will be coming to next-gen Xbox Series X, but have not committed it to Xbox Series S as of yet. Quantum Error was first announced as a PS5 exclusive at Opening Night Live through a blood-soaked teaser trailer, followed by 5 minutes of gameplay shown at the Future Games Show 2020.
In a series of tweets from their official Twitter page, the team stated that the decision to open as a PS5-exclusive was not for marketing purposes. They then followed this statement by confirming that releasing on Xbox Series X was to “allow more players to experience Quantum Error”.
Quantum Error is coming to both PlayStation and Xbox.
To all our fans and fellow gamers we did not announce for the PS5 and not Xbox as any type of marketing trick.
Our first game came out only on PlayStation and not Xbox, due to performance issues…

Some have criticised this move, claiming that the company used this announcement to gain traction. Others see it as proof that Xbox has performance issues which has led developers to stray away from releasing on the platform.
Quantum Error sees the player take the role of Captain Jacob Thomas, called to the burning Monad Facility after an unknown entity has attacked. Gameplay featured at the Future Games Show 2020 promised fleshy monsters, thrilling gun play, and atmospheric fear akin to Doom and Dead Space.
