The independent Liverpool-based developer confirmed it had teamed up with Xbox’s Rare in an update on its website and social media channles.
“It’s been incredible supporting them on their thrilling pirate adventure & we can’t wait to see where this legendary voyage will take us,” it said.
Lucid Games was formed in 2011 by senior management and ex-staff from Bizarre Creations after parent company Activision closed the Project Gotham Racing, Geometry Wars and Blur studio.
Among other titles, Lucid developed 2014’s Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions and 2021’s poorly received vehicular combat title Destruction AllStars.
Destruction AllStars was originally planned as a full-price PS5 launch game until Sony delayed its release and announced it would be free for PlayStation Plus members for two months before being sold for $20.
Despite its PS Plus launch, the title struggled to find an audience and Lucid even added AI-controlled drivers to the game to help players find matches when there weren’t enough opponents online.
