Phantom Dust reboot still happening despite studio closure

Microsoft’s Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has confirmed on Twitter that the Phantom Dust reboot, announced at E3 last year, will go ahead despite the closure of Darkside Game Studios.

Darkside were previously working on Phantom Dust but Microsoft ended their relationship last week and the studio closed soon after. While the new developer of Phantom Dust was not announced, Spencer confirmed that Microsoft is “still committed to (Phantom Dust)”

Spencer has been good with keeping promises, so it sounds like Microsoft will find a new home for Phantom Dust, but you will be forgiven for skepticism that a niche Xbox remake gets lost in the shuffle when the studio developing it closes.

From Amiga to Xbox One, Doom to Destiny, Megazone to Stevivor, I've been gaming through it all and have the (mental) scars to prove it. I love local multiplayer, collecting ridiculous Dreamcast peripherals, and Rocket League. Find me on Twitter @gollennium
