RUMOR: Rare Developing A Racing Title For Xbox 720

Ever since the Summer of last year to-date, Rare has been on a bit of a hiring spree, having consistently employed new and veteran individuals talented to developing video games. One user over at NeoGaf has taken a deeper look into those hires and noticed a very intriguing pattern: Rare has hired plenty of developers that have experience in the racing genre. Take a look…

Would be Megaton for MS if true. Anyway,All eyes are definitely on MS event in April now. Sony has clearly not impressed me with what they can do with their gaming system, so it's now all up to MS to either deliver the goods in April event...

I don't understand why the guy above me got marked for trolling when he was speaking the truth? He wasn't trolling he was just making a point to the guy saying Sony didn't impress while Rare has one racing game coming and it's a HUGE deal.

phantomexe1773d ago

i'm a little confused myself. What did he say that was bad? He disagrees with the guy above him but it's all clean.

AngelicIceDiamond1773d ago

Doesn't matter if its the truth or not hes offtopic and insecure for whatever reason. Tell me how does anything he just said have any relevancy to this piece?

As far as the rumor goes I kinda hope its true. I mean, MS already has 2 racing franchises PGR and Forza. I would like to see a action adventure title from them.

Nothing to see here folks, its probably something like "Banjo-Kazooie Cart Racing with Full Kinect Integration"....

Kevin ButIer1773d ago (Edited 1773d ago )

They should be working on a fighting game... that actually would be a megaton...

DOMination-1773d ago

Rare are a three team studio now. They might be working on a fighting game as well..

SDF Repellent1773d ago

I can sense Project Gotham 5 from Rare, incoming. Project Gotham Racing trademark Gets Renewed recently so the puzzle is beginning to connect.

Kinect 2.0 racing exclusives is what I am predicting.

microsoft is not done with its casual customers yet and rare is rumored to be working on a kinect game while black tusk is doing the core games work.

But I cant wait until microsoft show what they are showing, I am still excited to see more next gen stuff even though I know microsoft will more than likely disappoint me.

Zhipp1773d ago (Edited 1773d ago )

Aren't most non-SIM racing games considered casual?

Studio-YaMi1773d ago (Edited 1773d ago )

Megaton over a racing game ? OK ! whatever makes you happy I guess ? xD LOL LOL LOL LOL !

MYSTERIO3601773d ago (Edited 1773d ago )

MS would have to bring back a lot of franchises for me to reconsider getting their system again, such as:
-Brute force (awesome game)
-Conker: live and reloaded 2
-Crimson sea
-Fusion Frenzy
-Mechassault (great game)
-NBA inside drive
-NFL Fever
-Tao Feng: Fist of the Lotus (great game)

.....Rare has been hard work at work at a new exciting i.p., (you can feel the tension in the air)...... Kinect............Karting....

Jokes aside, while a new racing game would be cool but I would rather like a new plat-former. You see the sad thing is that Rare is now just a name, most of the original crew have left the studio.

BitbyDeath1773d ago (Edited 1773d ago )

It's already been announced that their next game is a nextgen kinect title so you might be right.

Link -

Will be interesting how they pull it off.

JeffGUNZ1773d ago

Rare is broken down to 3 studios. All 3 are not working on the same games. Well, hopefully not lol

pain777pas1773d ago

Scary thing is you could be close to being right. I think that it is some sort of kart racer that will be modnationesque. It will be good because Rare did make Diddy Kong racing. If it is not a kart racer than it is pointless because they still have the PGR brand. Come to think of it they could make some sort of PGR spin off karting game. Who knows? If true I am intrigued because it is Rare and they still have developer name clout for me.

FriedGoat1773d ago

Rare are not the good Rare of old. I can't even remember the last good game Rare made, Conkers bad fur day probably.

StrongMan1773d ago

This is that Kinect title that RARE were rumored to be working on.

QuantumWake1773d ago (Edited 1773d ago )

Hmm, could be this one huh?


Though this one is rumored to be a PGR title. We'll see what they have to show off come MS press conference for the next Xbox.
