Since 2010, Rare has focused its efforts on Kinect games. It still supports the Kinect and feels the Xbox One would be a lesser product without it, but it’s branching out again and will be making games that use all control schemes.

In an interview with Digital Spy, Rare studio head Craig Duncan said “what the input device is and what the gameplay device is ultimately depends on what game we’re building.”

He also discussed the possibility of Rare returning to some of its older franchises. While there are no definite plans in the work, he and the others at Rare “always look back at it and [they] always look at assessing it.” Additionally, he is “absolutely aware” of the series fans are interested in seeing again. However, going back to the general theme of the interview, he feels it would only be right to revisit an old IP if it’s “the right game for the right idea for the right IP.”

Although he made no promises, this definitely has caught the attention of fans. Who knows what the future will bring–the long-requested Banjo-Threeie? A new Conker game? Let us know the Rare franchises you would be most interested in seeing a new entry for.
