Forums - Microsoft Discussion - If Obsidian Made a New Perfect Dark

I just thought of something.

Since Xbox is the parent of both Rare and Obsidian, what if Obsidian made a new Perfect Dark?

I've heard great things about The Outer Worlds, which showed that Obsidian can make great first person combat, so if Obsidian was given access to Perfect Dark and applied some of what they did in The Outer Worlds it could be a great game.

But maybe that's just a pipe dream of mine, and I doubt anyone else here thinks it could happen. It was a nice thought though.

It's possible MS is already making a new Perfect Dark. I don't recall how valid the rumor was. The rumor was a third-person game,.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Meh. Obsidian have too much going on between Avowed, Grounded, and possibly The Outer Worlds 2 Microsoft has a lot of other talented studios that could work on a new Perfect Dark if MS want it.



Why Obsidian? If anything get the tech wizzes at Id Software to help the team at Initiative Games to help make the game.



MS does not decide what they make , larry and others pointed out if DB fine wants to make a new Conker game they can but MS will not decide that they should do it. I just doesn't know how a New modern PD will look like. I would be fine if is a mix of timesplitters aesthetic and funny style of story.

Like who? I hope you don't mean 343 Industries, because then it'd just end up being like Halo.

Never heard of Initiative Games. Sounds like you made that one up.

Okay, its called The Initiative. The 'AAAA' studio with top tier devs people speculating MS has planned PD for.

I've looked at their website, and so far they haven't done anything to prove themselves, and it's been almost 2 years since the studio was formed.

I don't know about iD Software working with the Perfect Dark license, because Perfect Dark is more about strategically achieving taking out enemies than just viciously mowing them down.

Look up the history of ID Software. They are some of the biggest players and more influential developers in the industry. Particularly for FPS genre which they made popular with DOOM. They have a good engine with Id Tech and some talented developers on the team.

I'm pretty sure they can handle a well crafted game with slower pacing. In fact, its probably the best chance they have if they even make Perfect Dark an FPS. Who knows there was recent rumours that it turn out to be a third person action game - ala Uncharted/Tomb Raider reboot.



Obsidian wouldn't be the best fit for Perfect Dark, not from the games they make. Perfect Dark is more a Metal Gear Solid/Dues Ex style game. Not sure if they have that type of experience with Stealth genres.
