The executive of an Xbox has updated a reboot of Rare’s iconic shooter. The first studio known as The Initiative was created in 2018, a new studio was officially announced in 2020. The studio is comprised of veteran and newcomer from across the gaming industry, making sure all the best of that is working on that title. The term “AAA” used in the game for the normal “AAA” tag used in huge budgets. No one has any idea what that means, or how it’s possible for that to be accepted in a label like this. The game was quietly after its initial discovery and left some question regarding the status of the game. The only significant news we have been receiving of Perfect Dark is that Crystal Dynamics has started helping on the project, after rumors of painfully slow development progress and large waves of staff departures. Something rumors suggest that the game was in rough shape.

However, the head of Xbox Game Studios Matt Booty stated on a PAX-West 2022 panel (via VGC) that Crystal Dynamics coming on to the project signals anything but trouble, rather than just the change in the game development. Booty said that video game development becoming more complicated and that multiple Microsoft titles have now used the help of other studios to get them to the finish line.

Everything about how we make games is evolving, says Booty. The idea of a team under one roof hasn’t always been heard. I’m talking about ourPerfect Dark team at the ‘Initiative’ in Santa Monica. We’ve just done this big partnership with Crystal Dynamics, and I have read online: “Ah, that must mean there is a problem or something,” it’s quite the opposite, right? You have this veteran team at Crystal Dynamics, a big AAA team that has over 100 people that will become available. Of course we’d like to work with them, especially if they have actually played such a game before.

As of now, when Perfect Dark will be released is unclear. Xbox announced many games in 2020 that have been very quiet since launching the show. As far as the other titles, the fans are adamant to see the Fable and Avowed title, plus the Elder Scrolls VI, more seriously. Hopefully, we’ll start hearing more on the games next year, but the Xbox still seems confident in Perfect Dark, even if there are rumors and speculation.
