Playtonic Yooka-laylee


Yooka-Laylee and Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair developer Playtonic Games today teased their next project today in a post on the company’s official Twitter account.

We’d like to give our community, our friends, a giant hug,” the message to the British game developers’ more than 105k Twitter followers began. “We know you’re all wondering what we have cooking, and although we can’t say just yet, something will be revealed SOON. Thank you for being patient with us.”

It remains to be seen if the company’s next release will be yet another game in the Yooka-Laylee franchise or a new property altogether for the studio, which is comprised of numerous veterans from fellow British studio Rare Limited. Of course, only time will tell. But you can rest assured we’ll be here to let you know what’s in store for Playtonic as soon as they spill the beans.

So, what would you like to see next from the developer? Would you be down for another platforming romp? Or are you in the mood for a change in direction? We love to hear what’s on your mind. Go ahead and let us know in the comments below.
