Alien: Isolation's lead designer Gary Napper has now joined Rare as a design director on upcoming action-adventure title Everwild.
Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty says reports of Everwild's development having been rebooted are "a little more extreme" than what's actually going on with the project.
