Chris Seavor speaks on canned Conker sequel

He spends all the treasury money on beer, parties and hookers. Thrown into prison, Conker is faced with the prospect of execution and the game starts with his escape, ball and chain attached, from the Castles highest tower.”

Oh man.

If only you knew what other stuff he told us but we can’t type here or tell anybody, anyhow. Let’s say that, any of you who were worried about a disappointing sequel would have **** your pants.

Discuss. I find this very interesting.

Seavor, not Sawyer. Chris Seavor is Conker's creator.

So, basically, if Micro$oft doesn't want it, it won't be made?

Didn't Seavor say that Conker was going to get killed off in the beginning? And didn't he hate Conker with a passion?

Hopefully what I found is true. Im hearing that Rare may be revealing their new project soon. I swear if it's Kameo or PD.....

That is a huge relief. So Conker isn't exactly dead yet.
I really hope to see something come of the "Other Bad Fur Day"/ "Getting Medieval" concepts in the near future.

I don't understand...

Why is it up to Microsoft to have to want it first? I didn't think Rare was that much under their control. If ideas are this far along and Chris Seavor would be more than willing to make it... then... I dunno... make it?


That's incredibly bizarre.

Maybe Chris isn't obsessed with Conker and wants to try other stuff, but if he was tasked with making a sequel, he'd do it. I'm so confused:

1) (from what I've gathered from the article) Chris doesn't hate Conker, and if he didn't, why did he never bother to correct that misconception?

2) WHY was it canceled!?

3) Is it still alive? I mean, we got some very specific details (ex. the title, the opening sequence and plot), so that gives the impression that the game's totally dead; however, because MundoRare could not tell us a lot of other details, I get the impression it's merely shelved while they work on another project. Which is it!?

4) Why is it we still don't have a picture of Chris Seavor? Stop hiding your face L! Kira will spare you for a Conker sequel! Chris!
