Considering Microsoft owns Rare now...they should REALLY make use of them.

Seriously, what are they doing with Rare?! It's probably the greatest thing they have for gaming.

Just have them do what they did for Nintendo's console. Create something as good as the old DKC games, Killer Instinct, etc. and if the new Rare games are exclusive to their stupid new console, some people might actually buy them!


But...I haven't heard a thing from Rare in a long.....long time.

Rare is probably like Blizzard. All the good talent have retired or gone on to do their own thing.

Didn't you hear?
Most talents left before Microsoft bought Rare.
They started other companies, like Free Radical Design, which is now known as Crytek UK.
Anyway, Microsoft thought that Rare would work on Avatar accessories, so that's why you havn't heard so much about them.
Some old Rare IP is supposed to be shown at E3.

Wait...Crytek? You mean the guys who made Crysis!? But those games suck!....

Aw...just make a deal with Netherrealm studios and make a Mortal Kombat vs. Killer Instincts game then. Boom, instant success because god damn I want to see Riptor take on Reptile.

Free Radical Design only worked with the multiplayer design of Crysis 2 and they made Crysis 3.
They are more known for making the TimeSplitters games.

Thinking about it, Rare got enough good IP's to fill a Smash Bros/All-Stars Battle Royale clone.

Donkey Kong is owned by Nintoddler. But they could do a KI3, Diddy Kong Racing 2 and Conker 3...
