According to a report over on Electronic Theatre, the Xbox Live version of Perfect Dark is “pretty much finished” and could see a release during “the last week of January” or in early February.
“The work is pretty much finished… as far as I’m aware, the conversion has been complete for some time now,” a representative intimately involved with the Xbox Live network told the site.
“We’re expecting a release very soon, there’s been talk that the game would launch in either the last week of January or beginning of February.
“Logic would suggest that it’s safe to assume [January 27 or February 4] would probably be the case, though of course with such a high profile title, all parties involved would like to ensure the release doesn’t clash with any other big games.
“It is expected to run 1200 MSP [which] I thought that would have been obvious by now.”
RARE has said previously that the title would be released in the “winter”, which it is now, and followed-up with Twitter posts citing an “early 2010” release.
In response to the report over on ET, RARE tweeted “No, afraid not” to the information, so we’ll keep it listed as rumor until something official is revealed.
