Xbox's newly formed studio The Initiative are set to reveal their first project at the upcoming Xbox event in July according to latest reports. Apparently, the game is an action-adventure with stunning visuals, built on Unreal Engine 5.
A couple of months ago, we got our first details about The Initiative's debut game thanks to a LinkedIn profile of the studio's former Technical Designer. The profile description stated that this new title runs on Unreal Engine 4, features various weapons, gadgets and camera surveillance system, which sounds a lot like a rumoured Perfect Dark reboot game.
Today, we have some brand new details about The Initiative's project, shared by 4news's Roberto Serrano . According to his sources, the new game is Xbox Series X exclusive with gorgeous visuals and online features. Here is the breakdown of the new info:
- Immersive fun game experience
- Photorealistic and interactive environments
- High detailed animations
- FX and outstanding visual effects
- Online features
- Unreal Engine 5
- No release date yet
If these details are indeed true, then we are set for a proper mammoth title from the new Xbox studio. One thing you may have noticed is that this does not really sound similar to Perfect Dark. However, since rumours suggest this is a reboot of the franchise, it is possible that Xbox and The Initiative are going in a different direction, potentially with a third-person perspective instead of first-person.
This is just speculation though so you should take it with a grain of salt until the game is officially revealed.
