Will Kameo ever get a sequel?

Or was it just one of those one-off launch games. I remember the hype for this game being so great, as easily the best looking Xbox 360 launch title. It was the only game that actually wanted to make me buy the console at launch. It did have some mediocre reviews, but also a lot of good ones, and it still maintains a metacritic rating of 79, which is pretty darn good.
But I suppose it never really did anything special, and I'm sure that, today, it would be far overshadowed by the likes of Ratchet and Clank and even Banjo Kazooie. Still, it's weird to think that Kameo would be so faithful to its namesake and be just a cameo on one system and then fade away into the great beyond. 
Or are they saving it for the next Xbox?

Didn't Rare say the stopped working on a Kameo sequel in order to work on Natal games?

@Andorski: I think I remember hearing some news about the game somewhat recently, but I'm not sure. That would make sense.

Kameo was alright but I am hardly hanging out for a sequel.

I've still got the first game on my shelf. It's a launch copy I bought on impulse... I played the first level. Didn't care for it much. It reminded me of a gamecube game. Graphics that I'm sure were good at the time, and awful controls and interface. Though I have been a big fan of Viva Pinata and Nuts & Bolts, so I'd be willing to play pretty much anything made by Rare.

@c1337us: I'm not really, either, but I'm still interested to know what's going on with it. It seemed like, with pretty much every game these days, they were positioning it to be a franchise, and it did sell fairly well; although I could imagine people being cautious about that, considering it was a launch title/graphical showcase. Then again, the 360 adoption rate wasn't very high until people had to see what the PS3 was going to offer.
