In an interview with Eurogamer, Microsoft’s Phil Spencer talked a bit about what Rare is up to.
He stated that they have “a couple of things at the moment, which we will announce at the right time. But I’m really excited by the things they’re doing and I believe you will be as well when you hear about them.”
I really shouldn’t get my hopes up here, but it sounds like this might be good. Interest in the Kinect has definitely dropped, so hopefully these new games won’t be for the Kinect. Microsoft has definitely been listening to gamers more lately, so I’m crossing my fingers for a new Banjo or Conker game; I mean a real Banjo or Conker game, not a Nuts and Bolts sequel or Project Spark. I’m not going to get too excited, but if we’re extremely lucky, we may see a game that actually feels like a Rare game.by
