Perfect Dark was one of the best FPS games I've played next to Golden Eye and Half Life. The trailer doesn't give hope or disappoint since it's just an announcement. The Initiative have their work cut out. I certainly don't envy them. If it comes anywhere near close to the original, it will be a great achievement.

I'm going they don't go too realistic, keep in the gadgets and aliens. This has the potential to be amazing.

Why do people continue to insist on using the "AAAA" thing?

From this past August

It's a mistake though, it was only ever on one job listing and it was deleted but media have ran with it ever since, even Drew Murray responded once saying he doesn't even know what AAAA means. Lol.

Ahh, guess its just one of those pointless terms that come up each gen like "Secret Sauce" and "Cloud" lol.

Dug the trailer, but "episodic" means it will be Gamepass only until there is a proper release for me. Can we just get a AAA campaign upfront please? Multiplayer and additional missions in a "seasonal" format would be okay.

Isn’t “episodic” from the same insiders that have been wrong about PD numerous times? Or did I miss an official statement? I won’t believe anything about this game from leakers anymore lol

Episodic rumour is now apparently 'bullshit' and was apparently just speculation anyway.

Insiders were also convinced it was 3rd person (it's not) and it wasn't Joanna Dark (it is) and some said it wasn't in the Perfect Dark universe (it is), insiders have been very unreliable on this one, Lol.

This is coming from a reliable Xbox insider:

- 3rd Person stealth action game in a Cyberpunk setting, core is on stealth.
- Rand heard it is based on seasonal content, not sure what it means but knows ''Episodic'' doesn't fit what they are doing
- Not a cinematic game, don't expect a Uncharted/TLOU like project
- Jez says that the ''AAAA'' stuff created wrong expectations, studio is meant to be small and nimble(I don't know what this means), not trying to do a ''GOW Killer'' or whatever.
- He says that they are going to do experimental formulas, they are going to be more similar to Remedy rather than Naughty Dog or other bigger studios.
- Rand says that the episodic stuff falls more in line with the Black Mirror comparison(From Xbox ERA), independent ''episodes'' connected in the overall scheme of things.
- Expect to hear about it soon, maybe TGA.

Sounds promising aside from the "seasonal" content. That's open to interpretation though.

As long as its none of the things you mentioned is good news to me. (Except the 3rd person part, i can live with that)

I would suggest not putting too much faith into these insiders considering how hard they were pushing it being a TPS. The episodic "seasonal" stuff turned out to be more of a prediction than insider knowledge. The term AAAA is extremely misleading and I hate it was even used for this. 

The AAAA was mentioned awhile ago however we all know its BS. It was used here to remind people that this game was the project, weather its AA, AAA or AAAA.

Given the wild contrast in the rumours, makes me wonder if some red herrings were let out just for the lulz.



I don't go with rumors, personally.

Anyway, we know almost nothing about this new Perfect Dark as yet, but I can already tell from the interview that I like the development team and trust their intentions.

I don't really expect this game to be as groundbreaking as the original was back in the day, but it doesn't have to be. I've waited so long for a new entry in this franchise, believing it was long dead, and then lo and behold, out of absolutely nowhere, BOOM, there it is! I was floored! The mere thought of a new Perfect Dark game has me in nostalgia overdrive right now just by itself! So yeah, the task here is convincing me not to buy it rather than the other way around.

I just became even more glad that I went with a Series X first. Seriously. Cannot wait to see more of this!

Whats really interesting is that it isnt a cross gen game either. Curious to know if that will change as time goes on, or if it will remain a Series X/S game.
