While blogs and consumer websites jumped on unconfirmed reports yesterday that Rare is currently working on Perfect Dark 2 for the Xbox 360, the developer has shrugged off any speculation of unconfirmed projects.
Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Lee Schuneman, head of production at Rare, has said that it's nothing new — rumours come and go, but the team won't be talking about any possible projects until it's good and ready.
"There's always rumours going around about different games we may or may not be doing but we'd prefer not to comment on rumours at this stage," he said.
Original reports came from the blog GameGuru, which suggested a true sequel to N64 game was in development.
Rare is currently working on a new title in the Banjo-Kazooie franchise, which Schuneman has previously promised will "bring something entirely new" to the series, and is likely to be the major focus for the celebrated developer in the near future.
