Rare won’t be going old school without a good reason

Rare studio head Mark Betteridge says that there is no need for them to go old school, unless it would be for more than just the nostalgia factor. There “isn’t a need” to remake franchises that helped establish the developers in their early years, he says.

While not leaving anything off the table, Betteridge does admit that Rare “would only go back to older franchises if we saw an opportunity to make the product in a different way that would do justice to [them].”

“It’d be nice to go back to these projects that have been successful in the past,” he added, “but that doesn’t mean we will.”
