Well, as they said on their job offer: It will be an adventure. Sounds like a B-K or Kameo type of game (well, except they call "developing an exciting game again" an adventure) :mrgreen: So I think it won't be a shooter like Goldeneye or Perfect Dark...

Yep. They did not say the next game was an adventure game.

They just said to join them in their next adventure. As in their next project.

I'm hoping its a least a hint. Surely you can't call kinect sports an adventure.

I thought the same thing. It could be a hint or just inane. New Rare makes me think the later although I am still slightly hopeful.

I can't believe only one other person thinks it's a new IP surely it's the most likely option. Maybe ppl are choosing what they want and not what they think it will be.

I'm that one other person. I think there's a chance it's Banjo-Threeie, but I don't think it's all that likely. I can't really imagine Microsoft wanting to revive that franchise and its platforming. Rare usually has new ideas (many of which never come to fruition) and it seems likely to me that they will create a new IP to match their creative talent with the Xbox One consumer interest.

Unless of course they get excited about making money and breathing proper life into the greatest franchise of all time. Banjo Threeie is one of the most exciting things in life I can imagine.

So yeah, it could easily be the most exciting thing they've ever done.
Make the forum great again.

Activision doesn't hold the Bond license anymore (luckly) but I doubt they would handle the license to Rare (even though they're the only ones along with Crytek who could provide a proper Bond game).
It's not Perfect Dark as Ken Lobb ruled it out for the moment and according to him Jo Dark might be back in 2020 (), so that's going to be a long wait (why don't they ask Greg Rucka to write more novels, damnit?).
Banjo-Kazooie has been rumored for a long time, so it seems likely, but it feels to good to be true.
Conker is on Project Spark now, perhaps if the character gains some popularity they'll make a new game next year.
Viva Piñata was one of the most successful Rare games on Xbox 360 and I would love to see a sequel to this.
They also claimed that there's not a Battletoads game coming out this year ().
I highly doubt they'll bring back Ghoulies, Jet Force Gemini or Blast Corps, even though I'd love to see them again.

I voted a new IP because based on Rare's remarks it seems the most likely choice.

Do I need to play the viva pinata games? They've never appealed to me but they seem to quite like in the Rare community.

Viva Pinata was released for PC too so you could look into that if you've not a 360.

I played it some time back. It's nice. Cartoony but quite dark too. A little strange breeding a load of Spaarrowhawks with the express wish of luring in their predator to eat them so you can make that a pet too! In the end it was the unnecessarily slow menu animations that made me give it up. Shame really as it's a nice little game.

I have an Xbox 360. I hate slow menus too.

I had a dream dream last night. Microsoft and Rare announced their new game BEFORE e3. When I clicked on the article the cover art was a pretty dark looking Gruntilda. I woke up before I got to read anymore but it looked like Grunty got her own game and it looked like an adult game (ie not a colourful child friendly platformer)

Made me think what type of game she could have...
