Banjo Kazooie

Ever since Banjo and Kazooie were officially confirmed as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighters last summer, rumours and speculation surrounding new games and remasters for Rare's legendary series have been doing the rounds online. One such rumour suggests that Playtonic, a studio housing plenty of ex-Rare staff, is helping Rare, Microsoft, or both to create a new title.

Today, and not for the first time, Playtonic Games has taken to social media to gently let down any fans believing such rumours to be true.

Playtonic says, "it's never fun to come out and say these things, but we're trying to avoid hopes being pinned on us".

What the Yooka-Laylee developer really is currently up to is being kept under wraps for now, but it might be best to avoid dreaming about any brand new Banjo-Kazooie games guh-huh-ing onto your Switch. Is guh-huh-ing a word? It is now.
