Making Dauntless


It’s been a wild ride watching our debut title, Dauntless, grow into a community of over 25 million players worldwide.

In this massively multiplayer online action RPG, brave Slayers band together to battle ferocious Behemoths that threaten their world. They forge their legends in a vibrant, science-fantasy world that’s ever-evolving through regular content and game updates.

Crossplay & cross-progression: the “One Dauntless” dream

Our goal for every Phoenix Labs game is that it brings players together. Beyond building a great game experience in Dauntless, we knew we’d also need to tackle crossplay and cross-progression.

For too long, platform choice has been a limiting factor for groups of friends who want to play together. Either you and friends have to choose the same platform, or you can’t play with each other. Once you choose, you’re locked in. Either stick with that platform, or you’d have to start over from scratch if you want to switch.

For Dauntless, we believe that Slayers should be able to play with their friends, no matter the platform. Got a friend on PC, another on Xbox One, and another on PlayStation 4, while you’re on Nintendo Switch? No problem. With crossplay, you can all hunt and chat together.

We also believe that Slayers should have their full progress, no matter which system they’re on that day. Usually a PC player, but feel like running through an Escalation on your Xbox from the couch? Just log in and play. Your hard-earned gear, quest progress, cosmetics, and more are all there.

We call this vision “One Dauntless.” On May 21, 2019, One Dauntless came true. We became the first game to launch on the Epic Games store, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One with true crossplay and cross-progression. In December 2019, we also added Nintendo Switch players to the mix.

Since launch, our incredible community of Slayers has grown tremendously. They are our inspiration, and we hope to serve them with more deep multiplayer game experiences for years to come.

Become a Slayer.

Future Games


Every new project is a fresh opportunity to learn, create, and delight people who love playing games. That’s why we’ve already started work on several game prototypes. Each of these explorations is unique, and all of them act on our mission to bring players together. We’re currently exploring many genres, both PvE and PvP, and looking at expanding to new platforms. We’re still early on the process, and we can’t wait for you to see what we have in store.
