Possible collaboration with Rare hinted!

Interesting that our esteemed Mr Price would say this. Best not hold our breath though - who knows what lies ahead?

Playtonic might collaborate with Rare?

Postby EekumBokum202 » Tue Mar 24, 2015 3:30 am

According to this interview with The Guardian:

http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2 ... ie-ukulele

Gavin Price says he knows what Rare is working on, and even hopes to collaborate with them in the future. I can see why, they DID work for Rare once upon a time, and the people they used to work with still work there (some of them, anyway).

How would you feel about this? Personally, I think it would be swell... If Microsoft lets them, anyway.
ATTENTION PLAYTONIC!

If Playtonic collaborates with Rare, let them. Just as long as Playtonic Games remains, and I can't stress this enough, INDIE FOR GOOD, I have no problems.

What if Rare outsources Banjo Threeie to Playtonic?

If this will stay only as a collaboration its fine ... but if playtonic gets taken over by microsoft and working for them again I would break up and cry.
In my opinion playtonic have such potential, project ukulele will be a best seller.

Hi all, Gavin here; time for a more thorough explanation of my comment in that Guardian interview;

It was a great question by Keith at the Guardian (who is a lovely chap by the way, it was amazing to have him visit). I wanted to get across with my Rare comments how that even though we've left them, lots of people are still there who we consider to be our friends and of course we wish them well with whatever they do in their future careers. I don't see us collaborating on a game in future, more a sense that we help cross-promote each others games in fun ways if the chance arose either in Ukulele or other games we do in future. For example, IF Rare and MS were up for it, it would be great to have a certain Bear and Bird lost in one of our worlds and needing the help of our new heroes to get back (in return for a pagie of course! Maybe there'd be a single Jiggy in Ukulele hidden to give to BK and they give you back a Pagie). These could even be linked in to a stop and swap bit of fun between Ukulele and a Rare game, obviously all exclusive to an XBOX ONE version.

Maybe other platform holders would agree to other mascot cameo's too...it's all just hypothetical right now!

That's all I meant by collaborating (in a nice little fun way aimed to give fans a little bit of fan-service!). Is Phil Spencer on these forums? If so I'd love him to read this (Hi Phil!). He's been a massive ally for Rare over the years so it's great to see him heading up the XBOX business - good times ahead all around I hope and the ultimate winner will be the fans!

From an entirely separate perspective I think this is the best outcome. With what's happened to the series in the past and without pointing fingers (because let's face it, we weren't in the boardrooms and all information is essentially hearsay) Fan-service would be better for the fans than a full-on collaboration. I love Banjo and he will always be my first, but it's time for some new blood and a new kid on the block. Right now it's about building on the old foundations and we're all excited to see the mansion that gets made :)

I figured that would be what was originally intended.

Still exciting to know that there's a possibility of that maybe happening :P

I kinda wish that Playtonic would become a big enough company to BUY the rights to Banjo Kazooie from Rare and Microsoft.

please please PLEASE don't have any exclusive moves/levels/available collectables between certain consoles, especially if it requires paying money in some way. I'm fine with paying for dlc, just as long as you can get it on all consoles.

edit: oops clicked wrong button how do i delete this
