Microsoft renews two RARE IP’s

One of the most beloved videogame development companies in the 90s was Rare , this is due to the great quality he found with important video games such as Donkey Kong Country, Banjo-Kazooie, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, among other games. And now, suspiciously two of its franchises could return thanks to a renewal of properties.

Microsoft has recently renewed two of the Rare IP in the global brand database after years of inactivity. The first is that of blast corps, game that was launched in 1997 for N64 . The second is Viva Piñata , a franchise that was born in 2006 for Xbox 360 , being a piñatas creation simulator that could fight between them and other actions.

It is worth noting that this could be only a routine procedure, after all brands they usually do this frequently to protect their properties from those who seek to steal the names. So it is very likely that new games of these franchises are not planned, something that could disappoint more than one fan.

Currently Rare is working on his most popular game of the moment, Sea of Thieves, and at the same time, they are also developing the new franchise presented a few years ago, Everwild. However, these supposed games could be commissioned to another study, since the Initiative is currently creating a new installment of Perfect Dark.


For now, everything is speculation with this type of brand records.
