"Quantum Break" has officially gone gold ahead of its Apr. 5 release date, creative director and writer Sam Lake has announced on Twitter.

In a video posted on Twitter, Lake is seen beside an oversized champagne bottle while announcing that "Quantum Break" has gone gold. This means the game is officially finished and the code will not be changed anymore until the scheduled release date, according to iDigital Times.
