Earlier this year RARE under went a restructuring to focus on developing software for Project Natal. A source close to RARE has told CVG that Kameo 2 and other traditional franchise sequels that were in development by RARE have been swept aside in favor of developing for Project Natal. CVG‘s source did say in Kameo‘s case another major contributing factor was that the original launch title had less then stellar sales, so not all the blame can be placed on Natal.
While it is a shame to see franchise titles crushed, I think RARE and Project Natal will fit together nicely. I look forward to seeing what RARE can produce in the future for Natal, and who knows maybe one day some of those canned projects will resurface.
