Rare doesn’t see need in returning to old franchises

Rare boss Mark Betteridge has said he doesn’t see the need for the developer to return to old franchises unless it saw some way to do them “justice”.

“[We] would only go back to older franchises if we saw an opportunity to make the product in a different way that would do justice to [them],” he said to Develop.

He further added: “It’d be nice to go back to these projects that have been successful in the past, but that doesn’t mean we will.”

The studio recently released the original Perfect Dark for Xbox Live Arcade, as well as the first two Banjo Kazooie games, with both series’ so far getting reboots in Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts and Perfect Dark Zero.

Rare is currently working on stuff for Natal, one of which is thought to be a fitness game for the camera.
