Rare is a development studio that has a long history in the video game industry, gaining popularity during its collaboration with Nintendo. This is why he was taken with awe when his new franchise was announced, Everwild, but sadly the excitement has faded after it became known that the project is having complications. There is good news today, as Rare already has a veteran to lead development.
Years ago, Rare revealed Everwild and months later it continued to offer development updates, but in recent months there has been no news, which combined with the absences at important Xbox events, has made fans think that development is in trouble.
What raised the most suspicion is that by the end of 2020 the creative director of the project, Simon Woodroffe, had left Rare and later rumors emerged indicating that, in effect, Everwild it was going through problems and it was even said that development was restarted.
