Rare: Banjo-Kazooie 360 Not Cancelled


Rare has contacted and let them know that, despite recent rumors, the latest sequel to fan-favorite series Banjo Kazooie’s has not been delayed. Rumor had it that a long-awaited first-party Microsoft game had been cancelled; whether or not this is true, it does not pertain to the new Banjo game, which I’m very happy to hear.

The rumor started when EGM exec editor Shane Bettenhausen said on this past week’s 1UP Yours podcast, “A big Microsoft first-party title that has been in the works for a very long time, that people are very excited for, sounds like it’s being cancelled.” He estimated that there was a 97% chance that the rumor would come true and that news of it might break this week.

I’m certainly glad to hear it isn’t Banjo that’s been cancelled; hopefully the rumor doesn’t come true at all, since nobody ever really likes to have a game they’ve been looking forward to be cancelled.

I hadn’t heard this was in development, but I am so glad it is. Banjo Tooie is still probably my favorite game to date.(alright, so it was my first, but thats not the point) I’ve been hoping they would renew the series. Now they just need the abstract characters and stuff from the N64 games.
