Microsoft has said that legendary developer Rare has a future and is most certainly part of its plans for Xbox.
The confirmation comes after the poor performance of Kinect Sports Rivals, layoffs at the studio and news of Microsoft removing Kinect from its Xbox One SKU's.
“I’m very happy to go on record to alleviate any of those concerns you might have,” Xbox Studios boss Phil Harrison said to Eurogamer in a new interview, “We are very fortunate in having Rare and Lionhead in the UK as crown jewels of Microsoft Studios.
“I’m really excited by the things they’re doing and I believe you will be as well when you hear about them. Rare is an incredible talent and they have some very very ambitious plans for the future and we’re supporting them in every way we can.”
Are you pleased that Rare are still in the mix as far as Xbox goes? Do you think Microsoft should help return them to former glory? We'd sure love a sequel to Kameo.
