The lights are on
Today's Xbox One presentation was light on games, but it sounds like Microsoft has surprises up its sleeves for E3. Speaking with Polygon, Microsoft's Studios corporate vice president Phil Spencer confirmed that one of Rare's established franchises will be making an appearance at E3 this year for Xbox One.
Spencer said, "Fans of Rare and Rare IP I think will be pleased with what we're going to show at E3," and followed up saying, "That historic IP that they've built I think can play a real important role on Xbox One."
Rare owns a number of IPs and franchises including Banjo-Kazooie, Conker, Perfect Dark, Viva Pinata, Kameo, and it recently renewed the trademark for Killer Instinct.

I'm praying for a jet force gemini sequel
Please be another Perfect Dark. PLEASE! I know some people don't agree with me, but that's what I want.
I hope it's a new Banjo-Kazooie. But PLEASE Rare, make it a true sequel! Not another horrible off-shoot idea like Nuts and Bolts...
you give me killer instinct and ill forgive a lot.
As much as I wish Conker would return like many of you, it won't happen because of Chris Seavor's departure from Rare. He was the driving force behind the game. He also voiced Conker and about 20 other characters. If only he had pushed himself to finish Conkers Other Bad Fur Day, we would have seen the proper sequel.
Conkers and his drinkin,bad mouth,womanizing ways... i hope!
Conker dammnit CONKER!!! :D
It would be neat to see conker or banjo kazooie or even viva pinata come back but after all the other stuff i have read about the xbox one today i think ill be buying a ps4...
Killer Instinct seems like a good bet, they need a fighting game.
Please be Banjo Kazooie 3.
I hope they bring back a lot of classic Rare games, Banjo Kazooie 3, Goldeneye (HD release), Perfect Dark 3, Kameo 2, Killer Instinct 2.
Be a good guy Microsoft! Get Rare off those awful kinect games and back into what they know.
This could be very promising. I would love to see a new Banjo or Conkers game.
Haven't most, if not all, of Rare's employees from the Nintendo days left the company by now. That kind of worries me, especially looking at the lack of quality from Rare's most recent project. However, if they do this right, and revive any one of my favorite childhood franchises, then I just might consider getting the Xbox One before the PS4.
I have a feeling that Rare will bring all their greatest hits back
FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS HOLY PLEASE BE EITHER BANJO-THREEIE OR CONKER 2
