Rare has just confirmed that the third Banjo Kazooie game is indeed on track for a release date sometime before Christmas. According to Rare community manager George Kelion who had this to say on the NeoGAF forums:

Banjo Kazooie’s website gets an update (sorta)

If you are a fan of platformers and own a 360 you are no doubt looking forward to the third Banjo Kazooie game which will be exclusive on the 360 thanks to Rare’s partnership with them. The website for Banjo Kazooie has been updated, but only to have you download a program called Silverlight in order to view a spinning puzzle piece (shown above). This however is great news because it at least shows that the game is making progress and will hopefully see a true update to the website.
