"I believe Rare, and for that matter Microsoft as well, will invest further into classic Rare franchises like Banjo-Kazooie or Conker, because it's pretty much common sense."
This is literally the exact opposite of what Sea of Thieves, and it's possible success, would stand for.
Oh yeah is this where I put my prediction?
Okay well if Sea of Thieves is successful they will keep adding content and make it like a standard games as a service game. Then we'll either get a new IP next gen that's similar, or Sea of Thieves 2.
