Re: Other RARE splinter Dev teams

I am not too sure, I know he has done some presentations for various games related conferences. I was listening in to the one about how Goldeneye was developed. Martin Hollis started Zoonami but it doesn't exist anymore. I probably only know about it due to them being a Cambridge company. What does ...

Re: Playtonic Should Do This...

The Wii U isn't doing so great for 3rd partys though. We have one in the office gathering dust in case anyone wants to develop games for it and we need to support it its the same for Vita.

Re: What happened to A Hat in Time?

Yeah I didn't bother with the Kickstarter and I don't often bother with them especially for games (as they seem one of the more unreliable Kickstarter projects) I have kickstarted a number of books, music albums, a hobbyist games dev engine and some games. Of the handful of these most of them have b...

Re: Let's talk about FPS games. Will Playtonic make one?

I don't think they should but hopefully it has opened the way for similar teams to do the same. I wouldn't mind if there was some spiritual successor to Timesplitters for example (we fired this up on the original Xbox a few weeks ago) I know that FRD went bust and got bought out by Crytek and so the...

Re: 'RARE REPLAY' and 'SEA OF THIEVES'

Did I say I thought it should be backward compatible? I said they COULD do it not that SHOULD. As I said it would be possible to emulate the Xbox 360 games on a PC in fact I bet there are emulators right now that can play Xbox 360 games to some degree on the PC. And yes it was added afterwards which...

Re: 'RARE REPLAY' and 'SEA OF THIEVES'

For a large or even medium studio a programmer leaving will have little effect on the game.

I am not sure of the number but it won't be a handful it will probably be around 20. That is not mentioning all the other disciplines and support staff/External staff.

Re: 'RARE REPLAY' and 'SEA OF THIEVES'

This is not the reason, the Xbox One and Windows 10 are pretty much the same architecture OS wise, there is a tonne of PC emulators for other consoles (essentially what the backward compatibility is) and well a decent gaming PC has much more storage and power than the Xbox One. Its not a reason of c...
