Xbox’s Perfect Dark Reboot Is Still Years Away

Years of setbacks have stalled development on the new Perfect Dark, and while it’s well underway now, we may have to wait a while yet.

The Initiative in 5 years have nothing.
How come Microsoft hasn't disbanded them?

Jin_Sakai393d ago (Edited 393d ago )

That’s because Microsoft likes there hands off approach.

Look at Minecraft... We’re 3 years into current gen and still playing the Xbox One and PS4 version. Still no 4k, no 120fps, no Ray-Tracing, and no graphics updates whatsoever. Coming from a studio with over 600 employees.

The Last Guardian took 10 years to make. In fact a whole generation passed before it was released. Playstation gamers were still OK with it. As long as Perfect Dark comes out good im sure xbox gamers will be OK with it.

MS is busy rebranding Multiplatform games as xbox exclusive. They can't be bothered with making games.

@reaper you forget playstation closed japan studio's not long after? Japan studios were awesome but you can't have development cycles last that long.

Microsoft doesnt know how to make good games. The initiative will fail. They've probably restarted the project at least once already.

The rumor was they're working on the next Tombraider at Square so PD is somewhat on the back burner now. Apparently TR will release before PD.

RpgSama393d ago

I hope you are joking...

Square sold Tomb Raider IP like 2 years ago.

Lightning77393d ago

I meant Crystal Dynamics apologies for that.

@Fire Im a heat magnet of downvote. Which is a good thing because it means ppl are paying attention to my words and findings.

My mistake here gives them an actual reason to downvote.

Nobody agrees, but everyone knows I'm right about these things. The more heat and downvotes the better for me actually.

All they're doing is validating the facts and logics. That's all I need so it's working.

Downvote away validate my comments lol

You mean Embracer group? Crystal Dynamics is own by them now

Godmars290393d ago


Wonder if that was the billion dollar deal that's apparently tanked them.

Ashunderfire86393d ago

You all know what the guy means you don't have to disagree alot lol

Flawlessmic393d ago

well it makes sense for CD to focus on there own ip's first and foremost.

there a talented studio so im sure they will make a great PD game when it actually does release

RupeeHoarder393d ago (Edited 393d ago )

They might as well save it for next console launch.

TheKingKratos393d ago

Good, Xbox fanboys kids and grandkids will have Xbox own games to play in the future then.

Crows90393d ago

The games they took from everyone else...yes.

Where's that fable? New IP from coalition? New game form 343? Where's the game from the initiative...these are the ones that actually belong to Microsoft and there's nothing to see.

All the others they purchased in order to take away from other companies ..and to do so permanently.
