Rare's Everwild has reportedly been rebooted

Rare has apparently rebooted its brand new IP, Everwild.

That's according to VGC, which reports that the title has been completely overhauled since its reveal back in xxx. This was the result of creative director Simon Woodroffe leaving Rare and stepping down from the project, with Everwild's design and direction being tweaked. Designer Gregg Mayles has also been brought in to head up this new version of the game.

As a result, it's likely not going to be out for a while, with the development team at Rare eyeballing a 2024 release date.

“The team behind Everwild continue to shape a truly magical experience and remain focused and excited about creating a new game centred around a truly unique, new world,” Everwild exec producer Louise O'Connor told VGC.

“Gregg Mayles joined us, late last year as Creative Director, and the team has never been stronger. Since showing the world our Eternals trailer, we have been making progress on all aspects of Everwild.

“The team continues to work hard to realise our vision and to bring the magic of nature in Everwild to life for players around the world.”
