You may or may not remember Sea of Thieves – Rare’s new IP announced at Microsoft’s press briefing at E3 2015. It went slightly under the radar given some of the bigger announcements, which is why you might be surprised to hear that Microsoft Corporate VP Kudo Tsunoda claims that Sea of Thieves is the best game Rare has ever made.
Speaking to OXM, Tsunoda had this to say on Sea of Thieves.
“I think what you’re gonna see in Sea of Thieves as we go forward and start talking more about the game is how Rare is enabling that kind of player-generated emotional and memory-driven stories that can happen within a game to happen within Sea of Thieves. And I think that’s what Rare does well. That’s what we’re going to keep having them doing in the future. And Sea of Thieves is gonna be the best game that Rare has ever made.”
It would be no small feat if Sea of Thieves becomes Rare’s greatest ever game, given that the studio has such a pedigree that they are able to release a collection of their own 30 classic titles in Rare Replay, coming in 2015.
