Bill Gleeson, from the IC Network, reported today that Microsoft Game Studios is interested in acquiring the intellectual property rights to the "Automobili Lamborghini" racing game from the Liverpool-based firm Rage. If this happens to be true, "Automobili Lamborghini" won't be a multiplatform title anymore and will become an Xbox exclusive.

Liverpool-based Rage Software closed its doors last week and went into receivership. The company was also developing Team SAS.


Lamborghini will be the first broadband capable racing game designed for Xbox LIVE; the game will allow players to take their collection of cars online and compete with other drivers around the world.

"Automobili Lamborghini" will allow the player to join the 'Lamborghini Millionaires Club', founded by high-rolling millionaires with a passion for speed, risk and Lamborghini, and race in a series of leagues set in exotic locations around the world. Members can indulge in high stakes challenges to build up the ultimate collection of Lamborghini vehicles and can also obtain rare and collectable vehicles by entering special 'pink slip challenges' where large sums of money and cars may be won and lost.

At the time of going to press there was no Microsoft or Rage representative available. We'll have more on this as it develops. Thanks Frank Lorito for the heads-up.

I'll admit that's one of the best box arts I ever seen. However, it still does't compare to the one of Brave Knight, Innocent Tears, and Galaxy Angel.

Why doesn't microsoft just hire the fools that worked for rage to make more XBox games?
