Rare is undoubtedly enjoying a comfortable heyday with the continued and sustained success of Sea of Thieves, which continues to bring players together and add content despite being over two years old, but its next project, Everwild , may not be there. . knowing the same fate, at least in its development. Announced almost two years ago and in development for 5 years, the British studio’s artistically impressive new project appears to be in less than optimal condition.
Although a little over two months ago Matt Booty himself explained to us above what the rumors mean that there has been a reboot in the development of Everwild, doubts remain on the table. Two creative directors – whom we know – have since abandoned the project and according to Jeff Grubb, it seems development is literally “always a disaster”. This is how he commented The last podcast of the Xbox era, in which you participated.
They don’t know what to do with Everwild
Besides saying it’s still a disaster, they haven’t been able to channel it either, because according to Grubb, they still don’t know what the game will be in order to properly define it and take a path of final development. Of course, he again claims that this internal reboot of his creation is a total reality, something Booty practically confirmed in his interview as well, saying that “they just make sure to create something very special.”
Of course, for our part, we have no doubts about the good work of Rare and that especially in these times of pandemic, any development has been greatly affected, especially if it is in these design phases where there are still gaps to define and it is difficult to agree without a more personal pace of work. We will have to see if in the next E3, at least, we see it again and this time yes, with the concept well clarified, because aesthetically it is impressive.
