Aaron Greenberg recently jumped the pond to merry little England to have a nosey around Microsoft’s UK-based developers, one of which was Rare who are working on something for the Xbox One.
When asked by The Inner Circle Podcast about what Rare are working on and if they’re developing more than one title, Greenberg confirmed that the UK-based developer is working on multiple games and that the firm are preparing to unveil them to the public.
It’s going through the process of preparing to unveil their next things, they have multiple projects in development and we feel really good about them.
There have also been a few rumours circulating that Rare and fellow Microsoft studio Twisted Pixel would be working together on a project, though it seems that rumor has been quashed by Aaron Greenberg who also spoke on the subject of what Twisted Pixel are working on.
Twisted Pixel is not working on a game with any other internal studios.
They have an exciting project they’re working on as well, very unexpected and very different and we’ll just wait to surprise people with what it is.
When asked if Twisted Pixel’s next game would be a AAA title Greenberg didn’t give a definitive answer but did comment on what he thinks of their new original game.
“I don’t know, I just think of a game as a game. They’ve made a lot of great games,” said Greenberg. “They’re doing something different, I wouldn’t classify by size, I just think it’s different and innovative.”
So there you have it. Rare are working solo and Twisted Pixel are working on something original and different. Maybe we’ll get to see something at this year’s E3, or perhaps a little sooner.
