Michael Pachter Says Rare “Has Gotten Worse And Worse”

Many who grew up with Rare will say that the company are a shell of what they were in the 90s and it’s not difficulty to see why. However, Rare did have a chance to return to glory with the release of Sea of Thieves only to be received with mixed reviews. One person who is not a fan of Sea of Thieves and Rare is Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter.

Speaking with Gaming Bolt, Pachter says that Rare has “gotten worse and worse” and believes that one of Microsoft’s weaknesses are that they do not have as many studios compared to Sony. Stating:


“I think the decisions Microsoft makes on what games to make are based on the talent they have internally, and as for Rare, I think this is what they’ve go. This is the best they can come up with. So it’s hard. There’s a lot of rumors about Microsoft buying someone, whether EA or Bethesda, and these rumors are based upon the commonly held perception that Microsoft needs more first party content.

“I honestly think Sony has a deeper bandwidth of talented studios, they have multiple 90+ ratings among them. And Microsoft doesn’t have as many. They had Lionhead, and that didn’t work out very well. They’ve stuck with Rare for 20 years, and that didn’t work out… I just think Rare has gotten worse and worse.”
