Monday, 30th November 2009 11:45 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Update: Microsoft has told us the studio isn’t moving an inch.

Original Story: According to a report from The Birmingham Post, Rare is set to move to the city from Twycross.

The studio will move into the redeveloped Fazeley Studios in the former industrial centre.

An insider told the website that the deal has been in the works “for seven or eight months,” with negotiations entering the final stages.

We’ll follow up with Rare on this one and see what they have to say.

Thanks, The Gaming Vault and Alex.

    What the fuck!? I can’t see that happening, Rare’s location is massive and gorgeous, I’d be gutted to see it go :(

    Maybe it’s just an expansion studio?

    I used to work at Rare Manchester. Almost 20 years ago. That makes me feel very old.
