For about two years since the founding of Santa Monica-based studio The Initiative, many speculated as to what the new game will be as industry veterans form the new Xbox Game Studios team. Although predictions are in the air, there did not happen to be any concrete proof to determine what the game will actually be. In April, one developer accidentally revealed that the unannounced project would feature spy gadgets and other technology.

Following into the summer, two Twitter accounts leaked, one for Fable and the other being Perfect Dark. While the first did happen to be unveiled the following month in July, Perfect Dark never arrived. But later on in a report from GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb, he tells that the coming project will be offering a new experience established within Perfect Dark universe.

Now in a surprise announcement that took place during tonight’s Game Awards, The initiative finally took the stage to unveil its next game, Perfect Dark. You an watch the reveal trailer in the video below:

“We have built the Perfect Dark team at The Initiative by bringing in some of the most talented game makers from around the industry who all share a passion for storytelling, world-building and creating memorable game experiences,” Darrell Gallegher, The Initiative studio head writes. “With the full backing from Xbox Studios to re-imagine one of the best loved IPs from gaming history, we couldn’t be more excited to share some of our early ideas.”

The game is still told to be in the early phases of development, so periodic updates are expected to arrive as the Initiative is ready to share more information leading forward. Gathered from the game’s titling, perhaps the game will be a retelling or a reboot of the franchise, similar to how Playground Games is with Fable or Turn 10 Studios for Forza Motorsport.
