Crystal Dynamics and The Initiative Teaming Up For PERFECT DARK – The Microsoft studio is partnering with another studio outside of it’s umbrella to bring us the classic shooter.
The Initiative, Microsoft’s studio developing the new Perfect Dark, has announced a new partnership with another big studio outside its parent company’s umbrella. In a tweet this evening, it was revealed that The Initiative has teamed up with Crystal Dynamics to work on the new entry of the classic shooter.
“Perfect Dark update! We are partnering with Crystal Dynamics, the world class team behind character-driven games such as Tomb Raider, to bring this first-person spy thriller to a new generation,” reads the announcement tweet from The Initiative’s account. Why The Initiative has brought Crystal Dynamics on board to help with developing Perfect Dark is unknown outside of this brief statement in a second tweet, saying, “The teams couldn’t pass up a chance to work together. We’re still early in development, but incredibly excited to use this unique opportunity to deliver on the vision for Perfect Dark!”
Crystal Dynamics is best known in recent years for its successful reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise and last year’s Marvel’s Avengers which is still going strong with its continuous releases of free updates such as War for Wakanda.
I am sure we will get word down the line as to what role Crystal Dynamics is playing in the development of Perfect Dark, but while you wait, be sure to check out the announcement trailer which we saw at The Game Awards last year. Perfect Dark currently does not have a release window, but expect it to release on Xbox consoles and PC when it does launch.
