Rare responds to fan site's closure

Earlier this week, we reported that MundoRare has closed its doors forever due to Rare's corporate bullshit. The fan community had planned to reignite its love for the fallen company by creating a free documentary to be distributed on Xbox Live, but the studio shut down the project for not being "on message."

Today, Rare has officially responded to the closure, in what could be adequately described as a corporately pedestrian statement. Managing to sidestep the criticism and not address the documentary, the British developer simply said it was sorry about the closure.

"Everyone at Rare was very sorry to hear that MundoRare would be closing," states Rare. "We've appreciated all their support and work over the years. We wish everyone involved with the site all the very best for the future."

At least Rare didn't try to spin the issue, but then, how can you spin a situation whereby some of your very last supporters on Earth officially gave up on you because you killed their plans to celebrate your own history? That's pretty indefensible.
