I hope we get some new games in the classic franchises from Rareware such as Banjo Kazooie, Conker and Perfect Dark. It’s strange how Microsoft bought Rareware yet not really making much new entries from their classic franchises. I would buy Banjo Kazooie 3, Perfect Dark 2 and Conker’s Bad Fur Day 2 on day 1. Here’s hoping Series X is the console that gets a ton of Rareware games both retro and new.

@Don Well a new Perfect Dark is 'expected' - however rumours are that its being made by the Initiative - a new Studio created by MS a few years ago and as yet, haven't formally announced what game they are making. There are rumours that its set in the Perfect Dark universe and a 3rd Person but we will have to wait and see.

Rare are making Eververse and still supporting and upgrading Sea of Thieves so I don't know if or when they could return to some of their IP's. Jet Force Gemini would also be one I would like to see return too...

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

I hope the Perfect Dark game will be revealed within the next year. A new Jet Force Gemini game would be great as well. Whether I buy a Series X depends a lot on whether new entries of classic Rareware franchises get released.

@Don It has zero impact on my decision to buy a Series X at all - there are a LOT of games that I want to play that will require a Microsoft console (or account) to play. The number of studios now under the Xbox umbrella should lead to a LOT of new games that you need to be part of the Xbox ecosystem to play. Even if they don't make anymore of those games, I still have the Rare Collection and can play them all on my Series X. I am more interested in what 'new' IP's they can create with the new Hardware - the possibilities SSD brings...

I need more Banjo-Kazooie but there are so many great IPs in Rare to use.

I hope we get a great Banjo game on the Series X like the N64 games. Recent interview indicates Microsoft is allowing Rareware to decide what games they want to make. I hope Banjo Kazooie and Perfect Dark are two of them. Did you finish both N64 Banjo games? I couldn’t finish Tooie up to this day. The game just seems much more complex than the original and the jiggies appear to be more challenging to obtain.

@Don The only problem with Rare at the moment is Craig Duncan, the current boss. Yes, Banjo-Tooie is a bit too complex but if you follow a guide it's much easier to beat it 100%.
