Reset Era member Mazi has made a compelling case to suggest that either Playtonic is joining Xbox Games Studios or has been put to work on a new Banjo-Kazooie game. It seems unlikely at this point that Rare will return to the Banjo-Kazooie series as they seem focused on creating new IP. A number of tweets and information suggest that Playtonic could be at the helm of a new game featuring the iconic bear and bird. Rare has spoken before about liciensing their IPs out to the right studios. Here’s what’s been put together by Mazi and we could hear more at X019 which is coming soon and taking place in London.
Yooka-Laylee, Yooka-Laylee & The Impossible Lair, and in the foreseeable future that game #3, #4 and the #5 one too which is the one I always thought would be game #1.
Playtonic registered a new company, the PLAYTONIC GAMES DEVELOPMENT LIMITED, out of nowhere on Sept. 17th 2019
