Banjo Kazooie series composer Grant Kirkhope has announced during a Ask Me Anything thread on Reddit that the Banjo Kazooie spiritual successor isn’t happening anymore. Back in September 2012 former Rare employees were going to get together and create a spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie and possibly get it funded on Kickstarter. Kirkhope now says that the project fell to bits once the developers got other jobs. Here’s what he had to say.
“The other guys actually had a secret meeting in a pub near Rare and we even got as far as having a character drawn up and a demo level type thing but it all fell to bits,” he stated. “Everyone’s got other jobs etc.”
