I hope that they make something for ''adults'' or at will at least make something for ''adults'' someday. There's a big void when it comes to platformers with complex gameplay and dark themes. A combination of ''childish'' elements and ''mature'' elements allows for the most creative freedom.

I was shocked at the idea at first because it seemed too soon, but then I remember they pulled off YL in two years more or less so who knows.

If their HUGE silence is because they were deep at work on a new game I'd totally forgive them.

I'm not surprised they're already well into development on their second game, but I highly doubt we'll see it being released within the next year. They still have to make the DLC for Yooka Laylee that they promised and the other Kickstarter goals as well. No one's going to care about those things if they release the new game before them.

That being said, I'm super excited to see what Playtonic has in store. I loved Yooka Laylee and would love to see another game similar to it, but I'd also be down with a Diddy Kong Racing or Conker's Bad Fur Day style game. It's probably a good idea that they're not saying anything about the game yet, so we can't hype it up beyond reasonable expectations like we did with Yooka Laylee. :lol:

I'm excited about this, but I'm more curious than anything. Rare used to be in development of multiple games at a time, but does Playtonic really have the time and resources to do that, especially when they still need to deliver on certain things promised in the Yooka-Laylee Kickstarter? That fascinates me more than what this prospective new game might be.
ATTENTION PLAYTONIC!

It will probably take some time because they really need to make sure the next game is good. They don't have the same deadlines and they won't be able to rely on nostalgia-driven hype as much as they did with yooka laylee. Yooka Laylee got lots of criticism for its lack of polish and they probably want to fix that.

I really hope its a sequel to YL... or a brand new 3D platformer. Maybe something new that isnt based on Banjo Kazooie. Having Grant s music is already a plus, so Im excited anyway!

I dont think they will announce it any time soon, maybe for E3 next year?

(New post to avoid a million edits to my last post)



Kev Bayliss, character artist at Playtonic, put up just now. That wink is definitely implying something here!

I'm pretty convinced Game #2 will be a kart racer, considering this tweet, all the speculation last year, and the fact David Wise is confirmed to be working a lot on the project (he did the music for the original Diddy Kong Racing).

Or, it's an intentional red herring to throw us off the true scent. Agh, we'll have to wait and see.

It's too early for a kart racer. They would need an established roster of characters before even considering it.

I don't think they are working on a racer.

This image was posted by Playtonic last year, after Yooka's release. The central character looks a bit like , but the silhouette is different. Could this be a tease for the next game that nobody realised, maybe a character from Schell's universe?



Their universe expanding could possibly be foreshadowing a game set in space, as well as obviously an advert for hiring new staff to create said game.

Gah, I could speculate all day about this. :lol:
