After a long hiatus, Phantom Dust makes a return.

15 Comments

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.

You guys should update the title and the entire article. It's a remaster/retweak of the first game, not the reboot.

@SteadyingMeat: That's better, actually. Most people haven't played it anyway, and last I heard MS wanted to rejig the game into something completely different.

@stage4saiyan: It's good you think that since this is actually just a remaster of the first game, not the sequel they announced. That's still dead.

This is the only game Microsoft needs to tell me more about. I adored the original.
