Since Perfect Dark's reboot was announced at TGA 2020, we've not really heard much positivity on its development. In fact, reports have since said that developer The Initiative was struggling to get development going, especially before Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics joined the fray. As it turns out, that move might of been just what the game needed.
On a recent 'The Xbox Two' podcast episode, host Jez Corden was discussing Perfect Dark development, when he dropped this interesting tidbit about how things are coming along:
"Funnily enough, when I made this [tier] list, someone actually reached out to me and said that Perfect Dark is actually coming along really well."
So, could the game's fortunes have changed since those older reports? Well, maybe. For now this is just conjecture, rumour if you will, and when Corden was pressed about giving up more details on development, he straight up refused. Here's a timestamp of the podcast discussion on Perfect Dark:
We'll just have to wait and see on this one! Either way, given that Crystal Dynamics was only brought on board around a year a go to help with development, we're probably a ways off seeing more on the Perfect Dark reboot.
What do you make of this? Hopeful that the Crystal Dynamics move was a good one? Let us know!
