Xbox One and PC-Exclusive Phantom Dust Isn't Dead, Gets 2017 Release Window

After a long hiatus, Phantom Dust makes a return.


Long-dormant action strategy game Phantom Dust will be launching for the Xbox One and PC, it was announced during the YouTube Live stream taking place at E3 2016. The game will be part of Microsoft's Xbox Play Anywhere program, so players can play it on either platform after purchasing it once. This is currently limited to digitally purchased games.

The game will be released for Xbox One and PC in 2017. The game will also have competitive play via the Arena platform on Xbox One.

Phantom Dust is a reboot of the 2005 Xbox game. It was first revealed at E3 2014, but developer Darkside Game Studios was closed down in the following year. The closure was the result of Microsoft cutting ties with the studio. Despite this, Microsoft claimed that development on the game was still underway.
