Apparently, MTV Multiplayer can. They’ve whipped up a list of potential devs who might whip up Halo 4 if Bungie is out of the picture. And their top prospect to take the mantle is Rare.
In 2002 Microsoft spent more than $300 million to buy Rare. But the company has has yet to get a hit out of the house that once produced mega-sellers GoldenEye and Banjo Kazooie. What better way to capitalize on the investment then by putting them on Halo, with the added hope of tapping Rare’s former first-person-shooter glory?
The problem is that their most recent FPS, the 2005 Perfect Dark Zero was a disappointment and the company’s best effort since then — Viva Pinata — would only fit the universe if Master Chief was also a Master Gardener.
