Phil Spencer Teases Revisiting Perfect Dark; No Comment on Crackdown’s Release and New Banjo-Kazooie

If you love the old and glorious classic by Rare Perfect Dark, a small candle of hope may just have been lit for you, as Phil Spencer mentioned on Twitter that revisiting the franchise in the future is a possibility. Unfortunately he refused to comment on whether Crackdown will be released in 2015 or not, but he also teased the return of Kudo Tsunoda.

Crackdown and Scalebound are two games that we havent even seen a playable build of yet, they are definitely 2016 games.

Mike ybara and Greenberg actually played the game in september during their visit to Platinum games and they said the game looked and played great and PG was making great progress,also crackdown has been in development for more than a year already,part of the tech used in the game was demoed early this year. The fact they havent shown playable builds to the public doesn't mean they cant be 2015 titles. look what happened with SO, FH2 and HaloMCC. these games were released same year they were announced(with the exception of SO)SO was announced via a cg trailer just a year before it was officially released.

also it will be great to finally see Kudo return to the limelight..

Im sorry lad, but i cant agree with you. Cause unless they release Crackdown in July or August, it will affect other exclusives sales.

Remember... Halo 5, Tomb raider, Quantum Break, Scalebound and Fable are also comming out so its a good year.

I bet it will be avaiable Q1 or Q2 of 2016 and MS will end 2016 with GoW

I'd be very surprised to see scale bound and crackdown releasing in 2015. Personally, i would like to see an early/mid 2016 release for scale bound (that will most probably happen) considering it is a new ip. Crackdown has a better chance of seeing 2015, but even then, it will be a push.

We didn't see or hear about Forza Horizon 2 until a few months before it released... So you never know.

As for another Perfect Dark?
Well, that'd be just great!

Hopefully they resurrect the briefcase gun...

fermcr2577d ago (Edited 2577d ago )

Have you seen a playable build of next Call of Duty or Assassins Creed? ... and yet they are to be released in 2015.

Just because you haven't seen a playable build of games, it doesn't mean they won't get released in 2015.

Hercules1892577d ago

2015 isn't even here yet, plenty of time between now and e3 . Both FH 2 and SO didn't have any gameplay til 6 months before release and they were some of the best games.

Andofaus2577d ago

Your comment makes little sense when you consider we didn't see any gameplay of SSOD until the game was within 5 months of release.

jb2272576d ago

SSOD was announced at the reveal event though was it not? While I disagree that a game needs to have some gameplay in its marketing at this point to be considered a 2015 game, the games will have to at least be announced or heavily rumored otherwise it's just vapor. MS might have a couple indie surprises in store for 2015, they also might have another 3rd party exclusive money hatted, but I highly doubt that there are any unannounced AAA exclusive games in the works for a 2015 release (outside of possibly similar less labor intensive games like Racing games & Remastered games), and I personally think that a handful of the games that people are assuming for 2015 won't ship until 2016, Scalebound & Crackdown 3 namely, and potentially Quantum Break as well.

Illusive_Man2577d ago (Edited 2577d ago )

You really hope they are don't you? I wonder why....

DigitalRaptor2577d ago (Edited 2576d ago )

It's not hope, it's logic. Common sense. You know that thing?

If they show some gameplay of Scalebound or Crackdown even in January, even releasing it in June or July would be too early, and then it would be another poor seller. Neither should release in the second half of the year because it's already packed and will be cannibalised by games like Halo 5, Tomb Raider and Quantum Break.

It's just logic.

kickerz2577d ago

Interesting. Says 2015 will be a big year for Kudo. Could he be working on VR for Microsoft. Would be awesome:D

I think, Abriael, the title is a little sensationalist. I personally think hes saying its not dead forever. Also I wondered what happened to Kudo. Just disappeared after Kinect 1 launched.

gangsta_red2577d ago

Xbox needs a new Perfect Dark. This can be such an awesome franchise because it has as much lore as the Halo stories outside of gaming.

christocolus2577d ago

a new perfect dark....agreed.

gamer78042577d ago

totally agree, has great potential, reminds me of the NOLF games.

Masterchief_thegoat2577d ago

343 should talk with ms about allowing them to work on pd.

u got owned2577d ago

And messed it up like they did with MCC... I kid, i kid, but seriously that could be a good idea, maybe give Halo a break after H5 and work on PD sound like a plan
