Let me tell you guys what really happened:
MS made Rare bend over and *hugged* it straight up the *arms* (while wearing an
eyepatch -Ahrrr-), which is going on for 14 years now. :)

And THAT is the truth.

On the other hand; without the *hugging* going on, Playtonic wouldn't exist right now!

I love you old Rare & Playtonic! <3

----------
P.s. Sadly bears, birds & squirrels were harmed during the process of *hugging*...

EDIT:
P.p.s. I got a warning, but the truth had to be told. :D

I'd like to consider myself unbiased on this subject, as I played rare games as recently as a couple of years ago. That being said Banjo Kazooie, conker, and donkey kong country made me a fan for life. None of the games Rare is making/have made in a while have interested me, while Playtonic has me really excited for Yooka Laylee, and hopefully the many more games that follow. I'm gonna throw in my hat in the ring with Playtonic.

After nearly 15 years as a division of Microsoft, Rare is almost unrecognisable from its days as a Nintendo partner.
The company has been through some great ordeals since 2002; some of the most salient are the terrible flops of Ghoulies, Conker L&R and Kinect Sports Rivals, the mass exodus of the staff from its golden age and chronic mismanagement from Microsoft.

Following Microsoft's recent announcement that its PC and Xbox divisions will be merged and Universal Windows Applications will be Microsoft's priority in gaming from now on, I suspect that Sea of Thieves is Rare's very last throw of the dice.
They're directing all resources straight at Sea of Thieves and are going out of their way to build it up - even billing it "The Best Game That Rare Has Ever Made".
.
If this game flops, Rare could go the way of Lionhead.

This video sums it up well:
