Everwild is Xbox’s newest exclusive – and it’s developed by Rare

At X019 today, Microsoft and Rare announced the newest Xbox One exclusive game: Everwild.

Following on from the massive success Rare has had with Sea of Thieves, Everwild will continue to take advantage of the Xbox One hardware and showcase the creativity of the team working at Rare.

Craig Duncan, Studio Head at Rare, revealed the game during a stream live from London at the X019 event.

"While Everwild is still early in development, we are very excited about the unique potential of the game we are creating," Duncan explained.

It looks like a game where players will cooperatively explore the wild and discover new flora and fauna, but it's surrounded in mystery right now.

"The Everwild team is focused on building an experience that allows for new ways to play in a natural and magical world. The development team, led by Executive Producer Louise O’Connor, is creating something truly original and incredibly special that aims to be more than just a new IP.

"Everwild will give you memorable, engaging and meaningful experiences for players everywhere to share. We cannot wait to share more."

Other than that, we don't know too much about the new game – other than it'll be exclusive to the Xbox platform, and will launch day one via Xbox Games Pass.

But just because the team is looking to launch a new project in the not-too-distant future, that doesn't mean the focus will be taken off Sea of Thieves any time soon.

"Having two large games in development represents a tremendous opportunity for Rare and the talented staff here as we grow and further evolve the studio to meet the challenges of simultaneously operating a successful live service and being in pre-production for a new IP.

"While Everwild and the team building it will get everything they need, we are still fully committed to Sea of Thieves — Joe, Mike, Shelley and the team still have plenty of creative ideas and plans to bring to Sea of Thieves for a long time to come and we have a number of central teams that support both games."

Expect to hear more about the game sooner rather than later – Xbox has already teased it's ready to reveal more information before the end of the year…. maybe even at The Game Awards 2019 on December 13.
