Natal Killed Kameo 2

CVG is reporting that a sequel to Rare’s Xbox 360 launch platformer Kameo has been cancelled due to a shift of emphasis towards Natal. According to the site, the recent restructuring at Microsoft has seen the canning of “more than one traditional franchise sequel” although Kameo 2 is the only one named.

Rare, who we assume would have been behind the second in the series, is one of Natal’s main developers right now, so that makes a lot of sense, but I’m at a loss as to what else was secretly in development.


Microsoft’s position on the refocus was made clear earlier in the year.  “The company is reviewing the current composition of its development teams and there is the possibility that a small number of current positions could be lost as a result of these changes,” said a statement from the American giant.
