"The people working on it don't know what's going on..."
We've seen reports over the past year that Rare's Everwild is undergoing a bit of a challenging phase right now — even Microsoft confirmed it back in October — and a new report has stated that the game is "a real mess" at the moment. Speaking on The XboxEra Podcast a few days ago,
"Looking forward to making amazing things"
The release of Rare's Everwild may still be a way off, but we've at least got some fresh news about it today in the form of a new hire for the team, with former Alien: Isolation lead designer Gary Napper joining the project. Napper, who also served on the early design team for Halo Wars 2, took to Twitter...
"We want to get it right"
As we've already highlighted, Head of Xbox Game Studios Matt Booty appeared on the Kinda Funny Gamescast earlier today, and one of the topics centred around an update on progress for Rare's new IP, Everwild. As you may remember, the game was rec
"It's time for a new adventure"
Last month, we heard how Rare's next big game Everwild had reportedly been rebooted, and found out the senior creative designer Gregg Mayles had taken over as project lead. It follows on from the game's creative director Simon Woodroffe leaving Rare last October
"It could easily slip into 2024 and beyond"
Update: VGC has also supported these claims with their own sources, adding that they too believe Everwild is a 2024 release. Not only that, but it’s said that senior creative designer Gregg Mayles will now lead the project. Mayles credits include Banjo-Kazooie, Viva Piñata and Sea of Thieves - a...
With full development kick starting in 2019
When Everwild was announced last year, we were left a little unsure of what the game actually is. With just a CGI trailer out in the wild (no pun intended), you'd be forgiven for thinking the game's not that far in its development cycle. But on the contrary, it looks as though it's been in pre-production...
Rare announced Everwild during an Xbox presentation last year, and details about the game have been slim since. But according to the game’s lead designer, “something unique is brewing at Rare”, and we can’t wait to hear more. As spotted by Twitter user Idle Sloth, Everwild’s lead designer, James Blackhawk, shared a post on...
"Come on down"
It's the beginning of another year and a lot of video game companies are obviously on the lookout for new talent to assist them with upcoming projects. With this in mind, Rare - best known in recent times for its pirate-themed multiplayer game Sea of Thieves - is calling for a senior designer to come and help create its next big hit,...
“The Everwild team are in good hands..."
We've got some unfortunate news to share about Rare's upcoming IP Everwild, as according to a report from Video Games Chronicle, the game's creative director Simon Woodroffe has resigned from his position at the studio. In response, Rare has confirmed that Woodroofe has left the company, with studio head...
The highly-anticipated Xbox exclusive
When the latest trailer for Rare's Xbox exclusive Everwild dropped back in July, it was met with a lot of excitement, but also a lot of confusion. What exactly is it? We're still in the process of trying to figure that out. To tease us a little further and provide additional insight, Rare has today unveiled
Aaron Greenberg talks Rare's new IP
Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg has been talking more about Rare's upcoming IP Everwild in an interview with the Spawn on Me Podcast, revealing that it's "unlike any other game that's ever been made." We got our first real look at Everwild as part of last week's Xbox Games Showcase, but even so, we still don't really...
What can we expect?
Even after Microsoft's big Xbox Games Showcase last week, we still know little to nothing about Rare's brand new IP, Everwild. We've previously heard how the game has been in development for at least three years now, and that it might adopt the games as a service model - similar to
"A unique and unforgettable experience"
Developer Rare has shared a closer look at its highly-anticipated new IP Everwild in a trailer as part of today's Xbox Games Showcase. You can check out the new trailer above. Unfortunately, there's still very little information to go on for now, with the game's description simply suggesting that "unique and...
According to a new trademark filing
Sea of Thieves has been able to stay afloat on the Xbox Game Pass service over the past few years, but it's not exactly everyone's cup of tea. Players who weren't so fond of it said they didn't enjoy the social aspects, while others felt it was underdone on release and were not willing to buy into the "games as a...
And it only got revealed last November
One upcoming Xbox title you might have forgotten about is Everwild. If the name doesn't ring a bell, it's Rare's brand new IP that was shown for the very first time at the celebratory X019 event in London last year. Over on the official Rare website, the game promises it will offer players "unique and...
