Conspiracy?

This might be wishful thinking, but meh...

Let's just say Lucas Arts has cancelled the game so that media coverage will wane, having less pressure on the creators of the game. You might ask "But then they'll lose all their fan base!" If they were smart, they'd know that at the snap of a finger any lost fan base would come crawling back. We all know this is true, despite some belief. In theory when the game is finished they will announce an uncancellation, making a moderate profit.

Full Throttle 2 demise was because of poor planning, but also it was the negative response that the media was giving it. This in my opinion is what really killed the project. To prevent this, they'd pretend to cancel the game so that if it were "uncancelled" fans would buy into it no matter what.

There are of course flaws to this, making Lucas Arts look bad in the whole situation. Thus sent all of Lucas Arts fans in disarray. Threats of picket line protests, anti websites, and hate mail are just some of the things fans have been doing. Would this make Lucas Arts seemed like the good guys if they turned their decision? Could this generate more sales to the game? Who knows?

One thing is certain; this theory explains why the S&M2 team hasn't said a word. Nor are the preorders for the game cancelled.

Again this is just wishful thinking...
