How Does Crystal Dynamics Contribute to the Development of Perfect Dark?
It seems that collaborating with Crystal Dynamics is actually very suitable for the Perfect Dark game. The developer is known for developing games with strong female characters. Lara Croft, the famous hero of the Tomb Raider game, is one of them. They did a good job bringing the Lara Croft character to modern times recently. They can achieve the same success in bringing the lead character of Perfect Dark, Joanna Dark, into the present. The fact that both titles are in the action-adventure genre shows that the developer can be successful in this game.
Microsoft knows how passionate Perfect Dark fans are. For this reason, the game is a priority for Xbox. Xbox has handed over the game to a solid developer. If you are a fan of the game, you can have peace of mind. Although we do not know much about the details of the agreement, the previous work of the developer gives an idea.
We know for sure that the game will come for Xbox Series X/S and PC. Microsoft has yet to make an announcement for the Xbox One. We know the company still has great support for Xbox One. If you have an Xbox One console, you should wait for news from the company for this game.
