After the announcement in 2020, Microsoft did not officially say anything about the Perfect Dark game. It is only known that the project was originally created by the new studio The Initiative, Crystal Dynamics helps it, and Microsoft itself positions the game as an “AAAA-class” project. It is known that Perfect Dark has recently lost quite a few leading developers, and the team is looking for new specialists. However, this does not indicate a bad state of development, according to insiders.
Renowned gaming insider Jez Corden revealed on the Xbox Two Podcast that Perfect Dark’s development is progressing well. How much you can trust the insider is up to everyone to decide for themselves, here is what he said: “Someone contacted me and said that the development of Perfect Dark is actually going very well”.
Jez Corden did not give any details about his source. Note that the insider has good sources in Microsoft studios, he has repeatedly given accurate information about the projects being created, long before its official publication.
