Although most gamers might argue that the PlayStation 4 has already won the console wars, the Xbox One has a shot at catching up, thanks to Quantum Break, Microsoft's newest IP.

Microsoft recently announced that Quantum Break is now officially the best-selling IP the company has had since it released the Xbox One.

Not only is Quantum Break seeing huge sales, landing it in the No. 1 spot on the UK game sales charts, but it has also become the company's most successful next-gen IP.

"We are excited to announce that Quantum Break is now the biggest selling, new Microsoft Studios IP this generation," a Microsoft spokesperson told IGN.

Microsoft didn't mention, though, that the difference between this title and its other Xbox One games - such as Sunset Overdrive, Ori and the Blind Forest and Ryse: Son of Rome - is that Quantum Break is the only title to get a release on both the console and PC. That's likely a huge part of the secret behind its success.

"We're delighted that Quantum Break has been so well received by fans and critics," Xbox Studios' Jon Edney said. "The game has already built up a passionate fanbase and we look forward to seeing and hearing about their experiences in Riverport."

Quantum Break hit stores earlier this month. The sci-fi action adventure third-person shooter quickly became a hit with fans and critics alike. Its story follows Jack Joyce, a man trying to stop the head of a corporation from enforcing the "End of Time" after a time machine experiment goes awry. The title's unique gameplay involves manipulating time to progress through the story, as well as using time to battle opponents. The game also challenges players to solve environmental puzzles, similar to a standard platform game.

Most players seemed to like the Xbox One version of Quantum Break, but those with the PC version ran into a lot of problems, including frame rate issues, random crashing and poor image quality.

Quantum Break is available now for PC and Xbox One.
