bad news for Perfect Dark. After its design director made the decision to hang up the guns and leave the project behind, now it is the same director who leaves The Initiative. The labor movement Dan Neuburgerthat project head, has been known through LinkedIn goes the insider Klobrille. You can see that Dan Neuburger left The Initiative after three years and eight months. This further fuels doubts as to when we will actually see this new Perfect Darkgiven that now, in principle, he has run out of his control piece.
However, and as Klobrille explains in ResetEraIt seems that this operation of The Initiative would be “normal” and that the project would be progressing gradually in an appropriate way, even leaving its launch window open for 2023 despite the fact that absolutely nothing has been shown beyond what we saw in the past 2020. A rumor has it that we could see the title in motion at the next E3but nothing is clear.
In any case, and returning to the topic of Klobrille, supposedly for The Initiative this will be common, because from his studio the foundations of the work will be raised, taking it by the concept, prototype and pre-production phases to later carry out the complete production with the help and support of another studio. In this case Crystal Dynamics. That would explain the name of The Initiative very well, of course.
What do we really know?
For now, the only thing we know for sure is that Perfect Dark be available for Xbox Series X/S and PC and that we will surely have news of the game during the next few months. But for now there has been no talk of a release date, nor has the gameplay been detailed or anything like that, which we hope will be resolved soon at E3 2022 if the rumors are correct.
