Who Killed Rare?

on February 9th 2012, 2:27 pm
EuroGamer's article goes in depth on speculating as to who was responsible for killing Rare. Love this quote:


"Microsoft and Rare was a bad marriage from the beginning. The groom was rich. The bride was beautiful. But they wanted to make different games and they wanted to make them in different ways."

I for one am sad to see the same studio that made awesome games like Killer Instinct, Golden Eye 007, Donkey Kong Country, and few other games, wither into nothing.

And yes I am one of the few people who did enjoy Star Fox Adventures.

Microsoft killed Rare, because they had no interest in keeping the company going after they swiped them from Nintendo. Razz

Killed Rare? The company is no longer "alive"? I'm probably alone in saying this, but I greatly enjoyed Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts and avatars aren't too bad.

I think they died when they released Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts Laughing

No one killed Rare besides Rare. The quality in its products was slowly coming to a halt. After Perfect Dark (2000), the company wasn't capable of continuing its phenomenal quality streak. They even had to revive a cancelled game on the N64, throw on the Star Fox name and call it a game. It's not a bad game but it's no Banjo.

Nintendo knew where Rare was heading for them and that was nowhere. So they sold Rare to Microsoft for the best of things.
