yeh saw that e3 interview with the president of lucas arts. maybe your right mate - maybe they wont make another one, but i defnatly think they will make a new one - but like the guy said, when they have some new ideas and some new technology.
maybe this is a fob off - but i dont think so, why would he say they are DEFENATLY going to make you - if they are not

(how much you rekon the rights are worth anyway - cause iv got 30 in my wallet lol)

Fingers crossed anyway for M.I.5

Frankly, after the cancellation of both Sam n Max 2 and Full Throttle 2, I don't see LucasArts going back to the adventure genre any time soon and if they do then, yes, it'll be in around 2015, but even the president of LucasArts wouldn't be able to predict that far into the future as to what his company will be doing, I simply take it as a joke.

Most people with sense don't want LucasArts to make any more adventure games anyway. The company isn't what made the games so good the first time round, it was the staff - and most of them have left now. I don't want to see some young turk messing around with DOTT or Monkey Island any more than I want to see Remi in drag.

True, one of the main reasons FT2 was cancelled was because they were scared it wouldn't live up to it's predecessor, which just goes to show that the people working for LA aren't as good at Adventure games as the old staff were.

I don't think all hope is lost yet... I mean Lucasarts gave up Sam n Max to Telltale games or whatever, someone could probably get their hands on the MI franchise some day, Lucasarts doesn't seem to care for it anymore anyway

I think it was more a case of them being unable to keep Sam & Max due to it being a creation of Steve Purcell. It was a temporary contract.

Monkey Island, on the other hand, was a very successful series that is their own intellectual property. Even if they have no intention of using it, no company will give away something like that without some serious cash, and even then it's probably unlikely.

Best to just dissolve all hope of another Monkey Island game, and should one come along it'll be a nice surprise.
