Rare Taking a 'Hiatus' From Viva Piñata
Those apparently heavily over-worked chaps at Rare (which, if you believe Internet rumour, is working on everything inside Microsoft including Office 2015) are getting post Viva Piņata lag.

According to an interview over on Mundorare, with Justin Cook (lead designer of Trouble in Paradise), "We don't have any plans for DLC.

"As far as the team is concerned we are taking a break from VP for a while to make something new. But things change quickly in the software industry so next week it may be a completely different story."

According to people we might or might know close to Rare, this break does not mean the end of VP, which the team has been working on for six years, but simply "an hiatus".

When pressed on what the 'something new' is, SPOnG was met statements about "new challenges" and a series of highly believable and obviously totally true options including: Halo 8, Diablo XIV, Battletoads vs Aero The Acro-Bat vs Zool and a secret project possibly called 'Fiuckchompers'.

We are also aware that the word 'gullible' has been removed from the dictionary. Nope, Rare remains tight-lipped on what the 'new challenge'.

More when we get it.
