Rare is moving into a new era. Lots of the old Rare employees are gone. I haven't kept track, but maybe all of them are gone. It only makes sense for them as a company to move forward and create new IPs. They wouldn't know how to properly bring franchises back. That's probably why Battletoads isn't being worked on by them. What frustrates me, however, is that Rare acts like there is no demand for stuff like Banjo. People literally tweet them about their classic games all the time, and sometimes they even tweet about them as well. What's the big deal if they sell some franchises to Nintendo? It's not like they are doing anything aside from Sea of Thieves.
