Actually Ron Gilbert said that.
He said :
- Lucas would barely start negociation with 10 M
- They are not worth that price, it's just that George doesn't need money and doesn't like to sell anything
- Licensing the games is not a solution because according to Ron, they could never do what they have in mind and would have to follow way too many rules
So yeah, pretty much doomed. But if the DFA is great, maybe we'll have a new licence to expect sequels from ah ah.
