Holly sh*t 4 years after announcing a new development they decide to side line the whole studio & outsourcing development :rofl: 

 

How many times the same sh*t gona happen within M$ studios :lol: 

 

But but but…..

 

 

Much performance so better…..

Well they have always stated they want to be small and agile . Its a 70 odd people studio and outsourcing work is nothing new ,All big studios and publishers do it for AAA games.
 

Its good to see them go with a big and known studio like crystal . Darrel Gallagher also has a previous relationship with CD as he has lead that team too during tomb raider days .

Even diretor of tomb raider and rise of the tomb raider (Danuel Neuberger ) is at the Initiative ,so it makes sense.


I think The initiative is going to be a concept development studio and then basically partner with external studios for execution .

 

P.S   its better to outsource with a single team rather than multiple.

Looks like this game also got rebooted (like everwild) with CD now the lead dev and initiative just a support studio. Good news is that CD will atleast deliver a competent product in quick time. 

 

I actually heard about this news a few weeks back where my source said CD is working on ip of a platform holder. Always assumed it to be uncharted as ND don't want to work on it, sony won't abandon it & CD were a perfect fit. Even posted about it just before the ps showcase event. :lol:

Source that it got rebooted or CD lead studio? Source? 

 

Darren former head of CD and lot of people from CD work joined Initiative as well. 

 

Creative director is from Initiative team. Project must be too big, so CD joining as support team not main. Its still first person spy game

4 years? You all dont know jack lol.

 

Pefect Dark was announced in 2020 at VGAs and Studio officially formed in late 2018.

 

And lot of 3rd party studios assisted MS studios in multiple projects. 

 

Coliation was assisted by Splash damage studios in UE, Gears 4 and 5

 

So as Halo MC, 5 and all by Certain Affinity and Saber.

 

T10 team also was using PG help and now T10 assist PG in Horizon. Its common. Though both are first party 

 

 

Darren and lot of Initiative staff came from CD. Darren head of Initiative was former head of CD, so its not hard for him to get some talent to speed up the development process as its massive  project.

I thought this was good news.

 

But we got concern trolling instead.

 

That too on xbox thread. :eyebrow:

It was not trolling 

M$ developmental/game announcement track record is taking a dip by the year 


A lot rides on Halo Infinite than anyone can imagine which in itself has taken 6-7 years of development & multiple studios joining at different times on it

CD acting as a support studio to initiative is like Salman Khan playing a sidekick to tushar kapoor in a film. 

 

In all likely CD will lead the project with initiative being a support studio  (like bloodborne from + sony japan) + many other small outsourcing studios will be contracted. 

 

As for reboot, Spencer was playing this game back in early 2020 yet 18 months later a new studio is hired to make the game and they officially say that it is very early is development. Atleast with CD coming in the game won't be cancelled whatever the final quality of the game is

How does it matter who is client and who is vendor?

 

CD will do all the work while The Initiative will ensure quality control.

 

That's how it must be set up, I think.

 

It will turn out pretty good by the looks of it. :wub:

 

Some people are just salty :ha:

 

Either it will get cancelled like Platinum's Scalebound, since MS has so much money it can burn it for shits and giggles.

 

Or it will release, xbots will call it the Second Coming, then everyone will forget about it in a few months

Just like 

Ryse( supposed GoW competitor )

or Killer Instinct ( we have SF too yo! )

or Sunset Overdrive ( frandship with sony broken, Insomniac is our friend now! )

or Recore ( idk what to say about this )

or Crackdown 3 ( Azure Cloud Powa + Terry Crews )

 

There are probably more from the early Xbone era, but hopefully you get the point :)

where did you get a look & of what?!?

 

A top tier developer working with a dependable publisher who is known to support studios well.

 

Sounds like a perfect match.

 

MS name is becoming synonymous with quality.
