Forums - Microsoft Discussion - RUMOR: Perfect Dark Returning Without Rare

A rumor is now circulating that there will be a Perfect Dark revival, but without Rare's involvement.

The rumor mentions the possibility of The Coalition, the studio behind Gears of War, is being tasked by Microsoft to make the game.

This has happened before with Killer Instinct, but that came out surprisingly good. I'm actually excited to hear if this rumor is confirmed. :)

Probably for the best.

not sure why anyone would want modern day rare involved.



Thread Title updated.



                                                                                                             

This is good. A reboot is needed.

Same with many Rare games.

Even Banjo-Kazooie or Battletoads.

I don't know if Microsoft has any subsidiaries capable of making great collectathon platformers or over-the-top brawlers.

If they cannot use the property properly,  they should sell it. So far it has been a bust. Rare replay being the exception,  also not new games.

The rumor is circulating a while now (check the Xbox empire thread more often =p).

But if you remember Coalition was named black Tusk before and they teased a game before working on Gears of War.

They probably work back on that game and make it into a Perfect Dark game

That, or they turned it into yet another Gears of War game.



I expect it to suck. Perfect Dark was great for the gameplay, not the characters or story. And knowing MS it will probably just be the PD characters/story shoehorned into some boring online multiplayer focused shooter.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Ugh, sounds destined for being underwhelming.
