"Game development studio Rare, a subsidiary of Xbox One manufacturer Microsoft, is gearing up the development of its latest game."
MY GOD what is it.
Goldeneye... Kinect Edition!
except Goldeneye 007 wouldn't be possible.
What makes you think its Kinect? They are free to make whatever game Rare wants to make. Im saying Conker or new Cameo. A next gen Perfect Dark would be nice, if done right. Im just glad theyre not being forced to make Kinect games. Now we can see what they have left when it comes tk making great games.
Kinnect Instinct or Conker's: Bad Camera Day.
@MeliMel It's a shame that the rushed Perfect Dark for the 360 launch killed the franchise. A reboot would be amazing. "Never-been-done-before& quot; should mean that it's a new IP.
"What makes you think its Kinect?" ....their last 3 games, maybe might have made him think that was some sort of a possibility.
They said never been done before, Hologram projectors! That would be cool though
kinectimals 3!!!>!!! OMG!!!
For once it's not a kinect game. I think.
never been done before, rare, let me guess another fps?
Overhyped before its even announced, that's what. @psvitamanfan: Your idea of "Never Done Before" is poor at best.
I dont understand? Care to elaborate?
Like how people got hyped for Guirrila's game that just showed some artwork? Don't be a buzz kill.
@psvitamanfan: When we've just gotten through over eight years of announcements for announcements of announcements with the announced game being either delayed multiple times if not canceled, I really shouldn't have to elaborate on anything. I really shouldn't. @TheNew1: Even though more was shown in that case, there was no point in getting over excited for it. We've gone through the same BS of getting excited for something that doesn't have a name, a few pieces of artwork, building up a fanbase complete with cosplayers in some cases, only for it to disappoint. Then being unable - if not outright not caring - to admit that it disappointed. Over all the gamergate crap its being argued that we're better than sheep, and here's a case proving that we aren't. Also - the goddamn link to the story is f***ing broken! Comments will continue to be made, people will attack and defend this no-name game - AND THE F***ING LINK TO THE STORY IS BROKEN!!!
It's Rare. A lot of people are still clinging on to the hope that they will deliver that 'killer game' close to when they were at their peak so yeah, I can understand the excitement. Still, you're right. Info is thin on the ground. I wouldn't get carried away just yet.
C'mon! Overhype from a job posting? It hasn't even been announced!
@godmars Some people feel like they have to be the First Guardian when it comes to Xbox news.
@Godmars The title is taken out of context as this quote is specifically aimed at attracting talent for the possibility of hire. “If you’d like to be part of a pioneering team dedicated to the next jaw-dropping, never-been-done-before Rare game, why not come and join us?” You are attacking an article based on the title alone and have no idea what it's actually saying. They are not hyping up any particular game as this quote is not meant for Joe Consumer. "...and defend this no-name game - AND THE F***ING LINK TO THE STORY IS BROKEN!!!" Wow, time for your daily meds Godmars.
@gangsta_red: Its really beyond belief that the link wasn't working when I first tried to read the story? Also not like its the only instance of a story with a bad link getting approved on its title alone.
I can believe that the link was broken...but is that still an excuse to go off the rails and leave the comments that you did knowing that you had no idea what the actual story was? Is that an excuse to downplay people's excitement on what Rare's next game could be? How about you leave that same comment in the story link below if you feel that people are over hyping a game that hasn't even been announced yet. http://n4g.com/news/1605354... But I really think you won't...call it a hunch.
@gangsta_red: Would it really make any difference to you if I made the exact same general pet-peeve comment here as elsewhere? I noticed this thread, not the other, but hate vague crap like this exactly the same.
Hype meter 100%. I'm a huge fan of Rare and im glad to hear this. Really can't wait to see what these guys are upto. They've been through alot but i still got a lot of faith in them cos they are still a very talented team. I enjoyed grabbed by the ghoulies,Kameo, viva pinata and kinect sports very much. I hope whatever they are working on turns out to be huge. Phil harrison, Ken lobb and Chris have also been working very closely with MS uk studios recently(especially Rare&lift) so im hoping for the best from these guys.
rare isnt rare anymore imo. MSalready forced all the original talent out when they forced them to make motion games
@ramiuk MS forced the original talent out??? Link? The stamper brothers (rare founders and studio leads) left before MS even bought the studio and even though many devs left they are still a healthy sized studio with over 170 devs (and they are currently recruiting now). Rare has always worked in small teams,(working independently) and even with all the departures many talents remain.the large part of the teams which made viva pinata and kameo are still there and imo those guys are talented. All Rare has to do is inject new blood(fresh talents) into the studio. I see this happening with Phil harrisson&Ken lobb now overseeing MS uk studio efforts. Phil Harrisson has an eye for good talent, he helped sony get evolution, media molecule, london studio etc..
Whatever Rare have been working on aside, are you seriously saying that this "Jaw Dropping, Never-Been-Done-Before" project isn't that unless it does something that a game that we already know about does. That's a paradox if true.
Grant Kirkhope (composer), David Wise (composer), the Stamper brothers (founders of the company), and Chris Seavor (creator of Conker) all left in the years since the MS acquisition. While it can be argued that they didnt leave because of MS, employees have described being unhappy making Kinect Sports in some anonymous comments. I cant find the article from 2-3 years ago but trust me, i remember reading it. I dont blame MS for their choices with Rare. Rare's games dont sell on Xbox, and MS found a way to keep 200 jobs and make money. It still wouldve worked better for both Nintendo and MS if they didnt swap Rare. Nintendo would have more games and MS would be $175 million richer. With Kinect Sports Rivals flopping and Killer Instinct being a small hit, its clear what gamers want.
I had no clue that they still employed so many people. I'm not going to get too hyped as it's just a job posting, but I do believe that Phil is going to be true to what he said, and allow Rare the freedom to create whatever they want as opposed to forcing them into continued Kinect centered development.
Rare has lots of talents left with them like Gregg Mayles, lead designer of Banjo-kazooie, Battletoads and DKC2 who still works there, lead designer of Killer Instinct and former voice of Jago Kenn Lobb works in Microsoft Studios as creative director and oversees the new "KI" development, Leigh Loveday, who wrote the script of the DKC games and Blast Corps is still there. Rare still has lots of its former talent. Rare is still capable of pulling a game as good as the original Banjo-Kazooie.
Nooooo for the 1000th time. Phil already said they don't have to do Kinect stuff anymore. Plus the description doesn't sound anything like Kinect Adventures.
I think a new totally new PERFECT DARK will be coming our way and its the perfect time. The studio's been given some great tools at this time with , some DX12 functionality, Cloud compute etc... A great team to do the franchise justice in its return.
Kinect Yoga: Flex Edition
Probably a Kinect game. They gotta somehow sell their tech right?
At Kenshin I'm 90% sure its not a Kinect game considering Rares not forced to make Kinect only games anymore. Thank goodness.
Actually the Jaw Dropping quote doesn't necessarily refer to one title but (being as though it on the recruitment page) seems to be aimed at attracting talent interested in creating new experiences with a very specific focus on creativity. The positions listed give background info about Rare's recent accolades including BAFTA awards for 2002's Kinect Sports and 2014's Kinect Sports Rivals. Furthermore the listing indicates that Rare is already "...deep into the development of its next eye-opening AAA adventure"; but its impossible to tell if this is another Kinect title, but we do know its an adventure game and its aiming for AAA visuals. They are seeking individuals with strong C++ and 3D modeling skills (Maya,etc...) and they are looking for someone to provide internal tools for managing and collaborating projects.
phil spencer said he didn't want Rare to be just a kinect studio , he made it sound like they were letting Rare spread their wings a little and do something they thought was cool .
Got you. Well then there is a good chance they may want to break away from Kinect. Whatever this adventure game winds up being, their listings seems to indicate that it will be something original and creative.
Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts 2!
That been done before xP
its even sh**ier than the 1st one
dance dance revolution : jaws edition ?! jk jk jk i hope they will show it at VGA this year :D
Can't wait to get more information. Rare aren't like they use to be, but they're still very creative and talented. They're one of Microsoft's studios' that really are unique and different from the rest.
Sadly, Rare hasn't made a groundbreaking title in the last 10 years. Any life or creative spark has been drained, and Tim and Chris Stamper, the main creative force behind the team, left in 2007. Probably their best game in the last decade was Viva Pinata, which for a studio which haphazardly made the now legendary GoldenEye multiplayer, is kind of a joke. They pulled an Infinity Ward before Infinity Ward did it. It's just a name now.
"Rare Working On "Jaw Dropping, Never-Been-Done-Before" Game For Xbox One" Connect adventures 3 yayyyy
Rare still exists. I thought they were dead.
its kinect sports season 3 lol with virtual reality occulus rift support roflmao
Can't wait to see what's in store for us. :D Game on!
Please, let it be Jet Force Gemini! *_*
never been done before
Not as bad as over hyped driver club. Lol should I say delay club. Over hyped game. That's why majority of the reviews didn't make it on here. Horrible reviews.. all those gifs posted here over hyped the game. Once you play it it's not even close to what everyone thought it was going to be.
Yep. FH2 is the real deal baby. Complete package. Best and cleanest graphics, best gameplay, best content. MS please pick PG asap!
Saw Rare and Microsoft in same sentence then strted laughing lol I'm off to go play Drive club which is awesome and addicting, see you guys later go to get my mountain dew and Doritos lol haha
Cool can't wait to play and see it .
I don't trust Rare to make anything good anymore.
I have faith in Rare to deliver an amazing banjo kazooie game. Please Rare the only thing you need to do is get rid of Kinect, and we are good :)
What ever it is, it'll be 720-900p and 30 frames. that's been done for sooooo long.
We're talking about gameplay features and the whole last generation 720p was an impressive feat and wasnt a negative thing to talk about. Now we have a big improvement and "everyone" is talking like its somehow breaking the game.
I knew once I moved to ps4 that RARE would come out of there shell a develop something in par with perfect dark (original not that 2nd monstrosity) or goldeneye
lol i have been so disappointing this year these hype things always turn out to good to be true. sounds amazing but then you realize games will always be limited by their hardware and once you actually get into the gameplay it almost never turns out "jaw dropping"
Well I find this a bit disappointing, I just want banjo and get force Gemini...and I want kameo to get a fair shake...
I was hoping for a new Kameo and Conkers but then saw never been done and my dreams were crushed lol. But seriously that is exciting, and I look forward to seeing what they have. Rare is one of my favorite studios, I have faith in them. I'm sure Phil knows their potential and will provide them whatever they need to achieve what they want.
Nice will keep an eye out for this great news thanks N4G.
A new Kameo with cgi quality graphics would be nice. The world she was in was cool and theres alot of options there - kind of like a Tolkien inspired world.
I actually love Rare's new logo. In some ways, it's better than their games these days. They'd probably make a really great graphic design company. I'm not someone who says that they were no good after they left Nintendo by the way. I loved Grabbed by the ghoulies. Conker: Live and reloaded could have been an opportunity to create a sequel to the N64 game. They had loads of stuff left over from the unused Twelve Tales code that they could have used. Perfect Dark Zero - once Bioshock came out it changed all the rules - and so did Half Life 2 before it really - but PDZ is an OK arcadey shooter. Nothing much more, nothing much less. It's not a bad game, it's shiny to show off the new HD, and it still has one of my favourite opening sequences. The dialogue is as camp as Christmas but it makes it all more memorable than many other games that take themselves too seriously. Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts was ambitious but just demanded too much of me to get involved with it. Kameo might as well have been Starfox Adventures part 2 to me- same type of thing. Viva Pinata- not my type of game. Now is the time for something like Conker's Bad Fur Day 2. We are ready.
Hello Old Rare, where the hell have you been??? We've been worried sick by that hethen step-dad Rare that took over a while ago.
The article was just so misleading. They have not showed us shit in years. They were on the right track with the earlier games Kameo Banjo but have failed big time to bring us any games.
Even despite most of the golden era Rare alumni being gone, one can't help but be excited about this.
never done before? maybe a new IP or some new tech or soft that revolutionize
