It’s been some time since we’ve heard something of the brand new Excellent Darkish title within the works over at Xbox, however final evening, we received slightly extra perception into the sport’s improvement. Specifically, which studios are literally engaged on it. Initially, the brand new Excellent Darkish was revealed to be the work of The Initiative, however now one other identify has been thrown into the combination: Crystal Dynamics.

For those who don’t keep in mind what The Initiative is, I don’t blame you. It was introduced again in 2018, throughout a time when the Xbox model was shopping for up builders left and proper. One of many leads on the studio is Darrell Gallagher, who used to work over at Crystal Dynamics. So this collaboration makes a variety of sense. That studio is after all world-renowned for its again catalog of hit titles that features Gex, Legacy of Kain, the Tomb Raider reboot, and a few Marvel sport.
As for after we may be capable of play the brand new Excellent Darkish, The Initiative notes the sport continues to be “early in improvement.” I believe that’s a pattern for lots of the upcoming Xbox video games which have been introduced over the previous yr or so. I imply, I assume we’ll be capable of play this proper across the time video games like Fable and Avowed hit Xbox Recreation Go.
