The biggest rumor is that they are rebooting Perfect Dark for the Xbox 720 and that they are also creating a new IP to launch the 720 with.

When you consider how large Rare is and how they've been hiring like crazy, its not out of the realm of possibility. Also, the last game they actually worked on was Kinect Sports 1, Kinect Sports 2 was made by Big Park, although it was "assisted" by Rare, they didn't have much to actually do with the game. So Rare hasn't done anything in over 3 years or so, plenty of time to craft a couple of launch titles.

You also have to wonder what there other 3 to 4 teams were doing besides the Kinect Sports team.

I would hope their latest attempts at games would be free to play...
Coming to pc? nice.... But I have doubts it will be good though..
