‘Historic IP” From Rare May Appear at E3 Microsoft Press Conference
Rare’s “Historic IP” to appear at E3
During Xbox One’s reveal Microsoft has stated that 15 Xbox One exclusive games from its first-party studios will be launching within the first 12 months. 8 out of those 15 will be new IPs, and the rest are well established franchises.
So far Forza Motorsport 5 has been announced for launch later this year, and a new IP from Remedy Quantum Break was also revealed with an unknown release date. This leaves us with 13 unannounced titles. Call of Duty: Ghosts isn’t one of them because it’s not from the first-party.
Polygon had a chance to speak to Microsoft Studios corporate vice president Phil Spencer earlier today. They asked him what is Rare up to and what is going on with their franchises such as Killer Instinct and Perfect Dark for Xbox One, Phil Spencer said that Rare’s “historic IP” might be revealed at E3.
“Fans of Rare and Rare IP I think will be pleased with what we’re going to show at E3,” Spencer said. “We had a limited amount of time today and a lot of story to tell. But Rare remains an incredibly important part of our development capability.
“That historic IP that they’ve built I think can play a real important role on Xbox One.”
It would be a safe bet to assume that it would be Killer Instinct considering that Microsoft renewed the trademark for it back in September 2012.
Take a guess what title Rare might be making for Xbox One in the comments below.
