Kameo 2 Was in Development: Cancelled in Late 2007

Split-Screen: "On June 8th 2008, Rare senior software engineer Nick Burton stated that Kameo: Elements of Power (and Perfect Dark Zero, another Rare title exclusive to XBox 360) had "made a lot of money" for the company in a profession where, "If you break even you're lucky, you're in the minority. Now, it's come to light that Kameo was indeed due for a sequel, but was cancelled in late 2007. This happened nearly 2 years after the release of the original."

WHY DOES MS ALWAYS CANCEL THE COOLEST NEW RARE GAMES????? first conker 2 and now this... why did you even bother buying them if all you wanted was viva pinata and banjo kazooie?

Nike2413d ago (Edited 2413d ago )

Don't forget Perfect Dark: Zero and Grabbed by the Ghoulies. It's sad, but Rare was at a time one of the most forward-thinking and fun developers out there. And if Kameo 2 looked this intriguing, I'd definitely be hyped about it. Regardless, since it was cancelled about 2 years ago, this just must be another foot note in MS's production diary - along with the closures of FASA and Digital Anvil.

I always hoped a new Perfect Dark would come around myself.

It's sad what has happened to Rare under Microsoft's acquisition. They're a mere shadow of their former self from the Nintendo days.

I loved RARE on 64 and SNES and NES

almost forgot

Rare should have stayed their own company so M$ would have paid them $50 million to make Banjo Kazooie a 360 exclusive. Instead, now they've turned into garbage thanks to M$ control.

I've been so long waiting for a sequel because I LOVED the first one. It's the best RARE game this gen followed by Viva Pinata, and now MS cancels it, most probably because of Avatar or any Natal sh*t. Once again F*CK YOU!!

I liked Kameo, it wasn't a great, but it was a good start.

EDIT:Rare going to MS was its worst move it could take. Should have stayed at Nintendo.

ms always holding devs back

Defectiv3_Detectiv32413d ago

Yeah, rare hasn't been the same since 1/2 the devs left to form the now defunct free radical. And if you ask me, those devs seemed like the more confident ones, Free Radical was repsonsible for bringing us Timesplitters, and I'm sure they were the one's repsonsible for GoldenEye and Perfect Dark back in the N64 days.

But honestly, I don't think Rare has made a good game since the N64, what have they really contributed to Xbox?

KionicWarlord2222413d ago

Wonder what rare is making now .

KionicWarlord2222413d ago

Other then Natal stuff ....and avatar stuff .

Carl14122413d ago

Probably nothing.

MS seems to like dumping crap on Rare. Honestly they should have stayed with Nintendo

Redempteur2413d ago

2 games cancelled and during that time , they killed banjoo ( in my eyes )

made avatars ..

congrats ...

BYE2413d ago

Natal stuff? So basically, nothing for gamers.
