New name should be "Exctinct" since they no longer make good games.

Sorry, but I have to laugh at that. LOL in fact.

Have to guess that the next move, once people have forgotten, will be to close the "new" studio's doors.

To what exactly? The names traditional, you can't change the name of a traditional company that's been around for 28 years? That's re-branding and changing the very existence of RARE.

Please don't let this be true....

EDIT: BUT if this means MS is gonna utilize rare and re-brand them for all the right purposes. And start delivering AAA games regularly for MS then honestly, by all means let the name change happen.

No name change, no games. New name/re-branding more games.

I'll go for the second option.
