Rare will announce its next game at E3, studio creative director Simon Woodroffe confirmed on Twitter.
“E3 (and beyond!!!),” Woodroffe replied in response to a fan wondering what Rare is working on.
Woodroffe added, “E3 will tell the world what Gregg Mayles’ new project is about.”
In another tweet, Woodroffe said, “All I can give here is a quote from the man himself ‘This is more fun than anything we’ve ever done.'”
Gregg Mayles is a designer working at Rare. He was a designer on the Donkey Kong Country and Banjo-Kazooie series, and the director of Banjo-Tooie. He also did design work for Conker’s Bad Fur Day and Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.
