People complained Microsoft didn't give studios freedom, now they have the freedom to do whatever they please and that isn't Banjo. I personally wouldn't want to go back to work on a game I finished 20 years ago when I have an unlimited budget to try any of the new dozens of ideas they have either.
Good IP should not go to waste. This goes all studios. There is northing wrong with a IP Holding a long break. But come on it has been 20 years since Banjo Tooie. Nuts and bolts doesn`t count.
Rare is a terrible developer.
