Intended as Rare
's first Massive Multiplayer Online title for the Nintendo Gamecube, the storied development surrounding Quest
began in 2000 as a fantasy role-playing game under the title of "Elements of 3 Powers". After a shift in focus that removed the fantastical setting, Quest
was re-envisioned as a space shooter in 2001 and following the acquisition by Micosoft a year later, the team began making the transition from the Gamecube to the Xbox. Unfortunately, Rare
would never go on to release their Massive Multiplayer Online game to the masses, as it was swiftly canceled thereafter.
