At the Xbox Games Showcase Microsoft recently unveiled updates to a number of games that were announced several years ago. Prominent titles such as Fable and Avowed were presented with impressive footage and gameplay scenes after there had been radio silence before. But players are wondering: what happened Perfect Dark and State of Decay 3 and why haven’t there been any gameplay insights yet?
But when you look at the list of Microsoft’s announced first-party games, it’s clear that this is just the beginning. Under the Xbox Game Studios banner, there are many games in the pipeline that haven’t been heard of since they were announced years ago. So when can we expect more gameplay updates for these titles?
More on State of Decay 3 and Perfect Dark over the next 18 months
It’s hard to say how long it will be before we get concrete details on all the games. However, some of these games appear to be poised for gameplay reveals over the next year and a half. In a recent interview with Giant Bomb spoke Matt BootyHead of Xbox Game Studios, and expressed cautious optimism that games like State of Decay 3 and Perfect Dark will provide deeper gameplay insights over the next 18 months.
“For 2024, I’ve already seen builds of and even played all the games we’re going to release,” Booty said. “There is so much material on Fable that I wonder why it hasn’t been shown yet. But there are a lot of cool things about this game that excite me. For the next 18 months I’m cautiously confident that we can show what we deliver and that we can provide a deeper dive into gameplay. Our teams are working hard on this and understand that that’s the benchmark: Show us the gameplay when you show up.”
Long development times and early announcements
Perfect Dark is currently in development at The Initiative and was announced back in December 2020 with a CG trailer. Although there have been reports of roadblocks in development, co-developer Crystal Dynamics has assured that production is progressing well. The recent reorganization of the parent company Embracer Group did not affect the development of Perfect Dark.
State of Decay 3 was also announced in July 2020 with a CG trailer and is still in early pre-production stages. The Undead Labs development team has received support from The Coalition, the studio behind Gears of War, in using Unreal Engine 5 for the game.
