Perfect Dark 2 canceled, may have evolved into something else

As the footage from a former Rare employee shows work on Perfect Dark 2 was done in 2007 before being scrapped as well as Kameo 2. Additionally, MundoRare has some exclusive information to share regarding Perfect Dark 2. According to our own sources, PD2 was indeed started in 2007, but by late 2007, it wasn't greenlighted; it was a prototype instead. Chris Seavor from Conker and Killer Instinct fame was in charge of the project. By early 2008, the PD2 team was cut down to a 3-man team, effectively putting the game on hold. At the same time, our sources revealed that back then, it was "overwhelmingly unlikely" that PD2 would no longer be set in the PD universe. During early 2008, the game (which evolved into something that wasn't PD2) was still in its early stages and with an uncertain future.

Conker Bad Fur Day would be awesome with Natal.

Gandalf3678d ago

Instead they're forced to work on some Natal crap.

looks really good smooth and all

Why would they ditch PD

For a peripheral that might not even

be good sad day for the fans of these

Kind of a coincidence how since Rare were bought by MS they have completely fallen from grace.

Rare on N64 = gods

Rare on 360 = games comparable to barbie horse adventures.

Start making awesome games again.....please?


They managed to screw up Banjo-Kazooie, though, so I don't really have high hopes for RARE. And the guy above me is right.

TheBlackSmoke3678d ago

Honestly Microsoft acquiring Rare should of been the equivalent of Sony acquiring Naughty dog. Just goes to show what happens when business takes control of creativity.

Blaze9293677d ago

Yeah everyone just blame Microsoft for what Rare has become...nevermind the fact that key members of the GoldenEye team left after beginning work on Perfect Dark.

Nevermind the fact that another small number of employees left to form Eighth Wonder.

So no, it doesn't show what happens when business takes control of creativity; it shows what happens when a company filled with key creative people leave that company.

One of their best, Banjo-Tooie, came out a year after this ''devastating'' split.

before you say 'ehhh bu sony cancelled x y and z' remember that those cancellations didn't stop a constant flow or MORE constant flow of games. Never played kameo but i heard it has a large following so its a pity for those guys i suppose as im sure those guys would just prefer a straight sequel instead of a natal version/spinoff..who knows

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! oh God no!!! why!!! This would have been the best FPS ever and it would be a system seller. This is ridiculous man!!! it makes no sense.

Valay3678d ago

This is a shame. I enjoyed the first Perfect Dark quite a bit.

Unicron3678d ago

Indeed. GE007 and PD are probably THE greatest console FPS of all time. I haven't had nearly as much fun with a console FPS since. Good times!

Darkestbeforedawn3678d ago

I need to replay Perfect Dark over and over. I'm never getting rid of this bad boy now.

CaulkSlap3678d ago

I really hope you aren't referring to Perfect Dark Zero... that game was like bathing in feces horrible. N64 Perfect Dark was insanely awesome for its time though. Rare is just worthless post-N64 days imo.
