Let's start with The Initiative. The is the studio that was formed in 2018 by veterans of the industry, and has been rumoured to be working on a new Perfect Dark. Whether that's true remains to be seen, but either way, VGC says it sources have told them The Initiative will reveal its first game later this month.

As for the date, it was reported recently that Microsoft was targeting the week of July 20th for the event, and VGC's sources are now saying the show is currently planned for Thursday, July 23. This corresponds with a date shared by VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb recently as well.

We're trying not to get too excited for July's Xbox Series X event, but it's getting difficult with these increasing reports! We can't wait to see what The Initiative has up its sleeve, and it seemingly won't be long now until we find out.
