Yeah! I made another post under the Project Ukulele board once I got to that. That's what I get for posting before fully reading.

I wonder if this has anything to do with Rare's website being down... probs not but I'm hopeful x3

The burning question to a hypothetical "Banjo-Threeie" is not that it will come out, but that it will even be comparable to Banjo-Kazooie/Tooie high sales and scores. If it would bomb in sales, and/or low scores it's Game Over for Rare Ltd. And their fate would be the company being disbanded and it's developers assigned to different parts of Microsoft Game Studios.

I still stupidly believe that a Banjo Threeie could be as great as BK/BT. I just hope Microsoft is aware that if they were to release a Banjo game that's NOT a proper platformer, the results would be disastrous. I'm sure they do though, they experienced the N&B flame. But they've been teasing Banjo so much this year, plus the "Year of RARE" and Banjo-Kazooie is an extremely iconic pair. I have a feeling we'll hear something about Banjo soon (E3?)

3D platformers are also making a HUGE push for revival. A Hat In Time, Clive 'N' Wrench, Lobodestroyo and of course our savior Project Ukulele. I think Microsoft was waiting to let others be the risk-takers to see if there's a demand, and now that they see it they're moving. Which isn't an uncommon tactic.

I'd honestly be happier if Playtonic would focus on doing their Ukulele Universe thing. It's an idea I like, and I want to see as much of it as possible.

If Rare ends up making a Banjo game, I also won't care unless it's multiplatform, which it probably won't be. :roll: Good for Banjo fans though! :)

They also confirmed they know what RARE is working on "I know what they were working on when I left last year" and "I’m looking forward to what they’re doing next – people will be really happy to see it." said Gavin Price.

So is this some sort of Banjo Kazooie we might see? they even said that "they (Microsoft) may might want to do a little multi-studio collaboration" this opens up a lot of possibilities! I'm not a Microsoft fan at all but I would love to see Playtonic collaborate in future Banjo Kazooie games helping the game feel as it should.

But what excites me the most is that if they are eager to do multi-studio collabs, that means maybe someday we will be able to se a DK64 or Diddy Kong Racing style game in collaboration with Nintendo and Retro Studios.

I would love to see that and that could help Microsoft and Nintendo build better exclusive titles.

I've never been more optimistic about a new Banjo game than i am now. Rare better not let us down like they have so many times. I would buy an XboxOne the second Banjo-Threeie got announced.

I find it a little strange to use the term "fans will be satisfied."
Why not blown away or ecstatic.
It seems like a less than stellar endorsement or, I could be overthinking it. ;)
