For those of you who downloaded the UWP version of the game from the Windows 10 Store, Remedy explains that it’s still working with Microsoft to fix some performance issues:

Microsoft has identified a Windows 10 memory management issue which may cause Quantum Break to crash on some GPUs. This crash is seen more frequently at higher game settings. Microsoft plans to fix this in a future Windows Update.

Xbox head Phil Spencer also announced during Build 2016 that Microsoft would fix current UWP games limitations by bringing G-Sync and FreeSync support to Windows 10 in May, so we may get a much better gaming experience on Windows 10 UWP games very soon. In the meantime, you can visit Remedy Entertainment’s community forums to get more details and the latest updates on Quantum Break.
