Head of Xbox: 'Rare is building a uniquely Rare game'


Feel like we've heard this one before

When Rare announces its next game in what I hope will be a matter of months, not years, I'm going to look back on this post just like how I'm planning to revisit this Battleborn description.

Head of Xbox Phil Spencer tweeted that he got to play the studio's new project today and called it "Rare building a uniquely Rare game, as it should be. Great visit to the studio."

In August, Spencer said that "Right now with Rare we're at a point where I don't want the Rare brand to mean Kinect Sports. The Rare brand can be more valuable to them, to us and to gamers than that." I'm hopeful (perhaps unrealistically) that the studio's darkest days are behind it.

I've seen wishful thinking connect this with Microsoft's Battletoads trademark but I'm skeptical.
