Burton: Half of Rare Working on Secret Projects

According to an article posted on, only half of the Rare studio is at work on currently announced titles such as Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise, and Viva Piñata: Pocket Paradise.

"All I can say is, you know about VP2 (Viva Piñata Trouble in Paradise), Viva Piñata on DS, Banjo obviously. There's a couple of things on the roster that are going to be pretty cool as well. Obviously you do the math. Look at the size and how big the Banjo team currently needs to be, how big our shared technology group and asset group are. Look at the number of games and how they're staggered and how many teams we have. There's about half the studio missing from the release schedule at the moment (laughs)," said Burton.

Burton was also directly asked about the possibility of a sequel to the well-received 2005 Xbox 360 game, Kameo.

"This is where I have to be enigmatically vague. Never say never," Burton said.
