Need a PD reboot. So bad.
The guy who wrote this Reddit post reached out to us last night. I've been exchanging e-mails with him, but as of right now he has not been able to corroborate any sort of employment with Microsoft. (Assuming what he sent me is also what he sent to the Reddit mods -- well, I'm not sure what they're thinking calling it "verified.")
Sounds fake tbh
Yeah Ken Lobb said no perfect dark until at least 2020 because there were no plans for it currently.Also, PD for 2016/2017...wasn't there recently a interview with Ken Lobb about PD and nothing is on the table atm but they will revisit the franchise when the time is right?

Yes. Conker should stay dead unless they have a banjo nuts and bolts style new idea that makes sense to be attached to the IP.
The n64 game was a product of its time and sold almost entirely on its novelty.
The humor was OK, but I honestly think conker bfd is a bad game all around.
I can kind of see a banjo or crash bandicoot reboot because there are so few 3d platformers and high quality kids games, but let conker make cameos in other games. He doesn't need his own for any reason.
I wonder how well Conker actually holds up today. I remember loving it when I played it on N64 (especially the splitscreen multiplayer for some reason), but I wonder if the jokes hold up. The Matrix level would probably be worth playing again regardless .
Funny you should say that. You have some prototype of NPD: Futurists Edition™ in use to make these bold claims?
It holds up like rewatching Scary Movie or something holds up. Some of the jokes are still funny, most of the references are dated and mean nothing to people who weren't part of that zeitgeist.
So why has Rare been ruled out for developing Conker? We havn't seen Rare work on a traditional game in quite a while so whose to say they couldn't handle it.
However, Insomiac turned MS down too. Apparently MS wanted Conker to hit store shelves by the end of 2015, and Insomiac refused because of the short dev cycle. MS wanted Conker out the door really quickly
