I wasn't brave enough to put [Xbox Durango] in the title
A few days ago it was said that Lionhead are making an 'MMO like' RPG for the next Xbox
Well now from CVG
,Rare have multiple titles already in development for the next Xbox
It seems they will still be doing Kinect titles,but are also looking to expand by doing mature games
Rare, the once brilliant Nintendo developer and current producer of so-so Kinect games, is working on "new IPs for future platforms", a job advert has revealed.
The job listing, which was spotted by Superannuation, calls for a senior product manager to work on "multiple AAA future console releases".
"You will be joining a highly regarded publisher-backed studio that is responsible for a number of IPs currently on the market that have already hit number 1," reads the ad.
Fans of Rare's Kinect titles will be happy to hear the studio won't be abandoning properties such as Kinect Sports; instead it'll be widening its focus to include additional new IPs.
"Whilst continual development of their core releases will be maintained, the successful candidate will be joining at a time where the studio is looking to move into new areas and develop new IPs for future platforms."
Excitingly, it's suggested that the GoldenEye 64 and Perfect Dark dev might be returning to the first-person shooter genre. Be still, my beating heart.
"You will have a successful history of releasing exceptional AAA games and these will ideally be in the Action/Adventure or FPS genre but this is not essential."
Last month Rare appointed Sega West game design boss Simon Woodroffe as its new creative director.
"Games are my passion and they are Rare's passion so this is my dream role," he said. "I love working with talented and creative people and there are plenty of them here at Rare. I am looking forward to getting stuck into making incredible games that will be worthy additions to the pedigree of the studio."
Nothing would please me more to see Rare go back to its glory days,but another part of me remembers how busy they were when the 360 was first released(Kameo,Viva Pinata,Perfect Dark Zero and a little later Banjo 3) and then went into the background again,i don't think they had anything to do with the Banjo 1 and 2 and Perfect Dark XBLA re-releases-I could be wrong
and then there were Kinect Sports 1 and 2..not played them,so i can't comment on them
(Looking it up,it seems they have made quite a few Nintendo handheld games since Microsoft bought them...which is...surprising
about 9 titles in all)
FWIW-i really liked Viva Pinata and Banjo 3,but thought Kameo was so-so,i know it has its fans on here though and didn't like Perfect Dark Zero at all
I still want a Conker update!!
