Microsoft developer Rare has suffered layoffs after the recent release of Xbox One exclusive Kinect Sports Rivals failed up to expectations according to Eurogamer. Multiple, separate sources indicated to Eurogamer that the studio, which has focused on the Kinect Sports series in recent years, had recently suffered layoffs.
In Kinect Sports Rivals players will be guided through the game by a voice that might sound familiar to fans of Doctor Who. Much like Stephen Fry in LittleBigPlanet, David Tennant will be voicing the new Kinect game and guiding you as you progress through the game.
The former Doctor Who star said of the game: “I’ve never done a video game before. This is a first for me, rock Climbing looks good. I quite like the slightly unsportsmanlike element where you can grab a rival’s foot and chuck him off the cliff.”
