Ex-Rare Devs Form Playtonic Games

A group of ex-Rare developers that consist of the programmer of Donkey Kong Country, the character designer behind Banjo and Kazooie, and environmental artist of previous Rare adventure games has formed a new studio called Playtonic Games. They are currently in their humble beginnings and developing their first game which will be a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie. The first artwork and information for the game will be available this week in the new issue of Edge Magazine, but in the mean time be sure and visit their official website, playtonicgames.com.
