A Cut Above The Rare-st

Picture from www.underconsideration.com
Trust me, these aren't good cuts of beef.

Sad news today, as Rare have been forced to cut staff because of the disappointment and flop Kinect Sports Rivals, a game that was supposed to be the selling point of the Xbox One's Kinect but actually turned out to be it's semi-downfall, as a Kinect-less Xbox One console was announced earlier this month. Sadly, 16 developers will be released, and Rare's future is currently in limbo. They aren't in financial travel, but Kinect Sports was really Rare's only IP, and since that's probably ended I can't imagine what Rare will work on next. 

A suggestion that many people have said is that Rare revives one of it's old franchises. I'm sure that many people would welcome another Banjo Kazooie game, and with the success of Deadpool, many people would love another comedic Conker game. Still, best of luck to Rare and all the staff who were let go, and lets hope that the Great And Mighty Poo doesn't trouble them any more. Stupid poop.

What do you guys think? Would you like to see one of Rare's old franchises revived? Or would you like a new IP from Rare? Tell us in the comments below!
