    Rare working on Xbox 720 launch title: "will be big."

    We figured this much.


    On his CV, a British freelance animator says he is "Currently Working on a AAA Next-Gen Xbox Release Title .. for 2013." In a post on his firm's Facebook page from last September, the animator states that he is "working with Rare on a new title," but cannot divulge any details due to confidentiality agreements. However, he does generically hint that the game "will be big." Combining these two items together, it doesn't seem unreasonable to infer that Rare is probably making a launch window game for the next Xbox.

    The Verge's Tom Warren reported a few weeks back that Microsoft's slate of "major launch titles" included "a family game set on an island with Pixar movie-style graphics," which doesn't necessarily seem outside of Rare's wheelhouse given their recent casual, family-friendly Kinect focus.

    "We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?"
    --Kaz Hirai, CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment

    If it's another kids game then I pass. What Rare is still very good at is graphics. Kameo had some awesome high res textures and bump mapping. Their last banjo game had toy story like graphics. Very nicely done.

    What Rare needs to do is start making some hardcore games again at some point. Otherwise I likely won't buy them.

    Its possible that Conkers Bad Fur Day may be the kids game that's needed to sell the console.

    "Pixar movie-style graphics"
    but will it have a story like any of Pixar's movies?

    Knowing Rare, probably. Apart from their last game, which was an abomination, their stuff has always been amazing.

    So what I'm hearing is that this might be a family game? Not that there is anything wrong with family games but I really want a traditional core (i.e. non-kinect) title from Rare.

    Truth be told I'm not getting my hopes up. Some of you mentioning Killer Instinct are setting yourselves up for disappointment. Unless of course there was a leak I missed referencing this title.
