Last month it was announced that Destruction AllStars studio Lucid Games has been working with Rare as a support studio on the game.
The independent Liverpool-based developer confirmed it had teamed up with Xbox’s Rare in an update on its website and social media channels.
“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.
The studio was reportedly given development duties on Sony’s Twisted Metal video game reboot, but the unannounced project was later moved to PlayStation’s Firesprite studio.
