Yooka-Laylee Developer Playtonic is Teasing a New Game
Playtonic, developers behind the 2017 Banjo-Kazooie successor Yooka-Laylee are teasing their next project on Twitter.
Playtonic, a studios made up of former Rare developers, put themselves on the map with their crowdfunded 3D platformer Yooka-Laylee. While the game was divisive at launch, the 3D platformer eventually found its footing and gained a respectable audience after a few needed patches. Outside of a Nintendo Switch port in late 2017, nothing outside of Yooka-Laylee updates has come from Playtonic. Fortunately, that seems like it will be changing tomorrow.
Today, Playtonic posted a Tweet that simply said “Bee back tomorrow” with a short video highlighting a bunch of comments that were asking about what was coming next from the Yooka-Laylee developer. You can check that out below:

Obviously, this confirms that we will be seeing whatever Playtonic has in store for us next sometime tomorrow. Other of this teaser tweet, there is not much to go on about this game. Considering they said “bee” instead of “be,” the game could possibly center around a bee character. Could it be Captial B from Yooka-Laylee, or something completely different?
Personally, I’m curious to see if this team of Rare developers sticks to the 3D platformer formula, choose to make a successor to a different Rare game in a different genre, or just does something completely original now that they have an audience. On the other hand, I’m also crossing my fingers and praying to the gods for a Buck Bumble revival to accompany the resurrection of Bubsy and Kao the Kangaroo.
Whatever it is, DualShockers will be sure to let you know about it once it is revealed tomorrow. In the meantime, you can play Yooka-Laylee on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. If you would like to get the game physically, it is available on Amazon.
