Rare has always been one of my favourite developers but I have feel out of love with them the past few years due to their recent focus on casual games. If recent job postings are to be believed it appears Rare may be focusing on developing games for the next Xbox and perhaps going back to their gaming roots.
New job listings spotted by Superannuation shows that Rare is looking to hire a Senior Product Manager and Principal Program Manager. The first listing mentions that Rare is developing "multiple AAA future console releases," and that they prefer applicants with experience"in the action/adventure or FPS genre."
Rare is responsible for some of my favourite games of all time including Goldeneye, Conkers Bad Fur Day and Perfect Dark. If they are indeed returning to developing these "core experiences" I will be grabbing the next Xbox on day one.
