Founders Of Rare Leave Company

1UP is reporting that Rare founders Chris and Tim Stamper have left the Microsoft owned development studio.

people move on, people get old, people die, and companies must go on. The creator of final fantasy quit square and didnt stop them from make like 20 versions of it. Hope them the best with wherever they are going to do. Maybe Nintendo offered them something better.

Every Final Fantasy title is unique, so they're definitely not sequels. Well, except for the damn chocobos.

Considering most of the staff from Rareware took off long before the Microsoft acquisition, it doesn't surprise me that the founders finally went off too.
