Microsoft-owned studio Rare said Craig Duncan -- who formerly worked for companies including Codemasters, Midway Games and Sumo Digital -- has been hired as the company's new senior development director At Rare, which most recently released Kinect Sports, Duncan will oversee "all aspects of product development and talent management at the Midlands [UK]-based studio," the company said. Duncan has credits on games including Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, Overlord, Rise of the Argonauts, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty and Colin McRae 04, among others. In 2008, Duncan moved from Codemasters to Midway Newcastle where he was studio head, prior to Midway's acquisition by Warner and subsequent liquidation. Most recently, he is credited for work at Sumo Digital on Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. Duncan said he plans to be involved with developing games "that will see Rare establish its position as one of the world’s top game studios." Rare was founded in 1985 and was acquired by Microsoft in 2002. The company released early Xbox 360 games Kameo and Perfect Dark Zero, and more recently worked on Xbox 360's avatar feature as well as Viva Pinata and Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.
