In what may be a page taken out of the bag of tricks of Telltale Games. King Quest will release a new addition to the series with the first of a series of Episodes in July with "What Is Decreed Must Be". It was though with the dead of Sierra company and being bought by Activision would be like burying the game, but apparently throughout 2010 we will be receiving episodes of King Quest.
This is like reviving the rivalry between king quest, and monkey island. Which are the reigning adventure game champs of the 90's. Here is the news from Gameinformer.

After the sad news that Activision had killed Phoenix Online Studios' fan-made King's Quest sequel, it looked as though adventure fans would never see the royal family of Daventry again. Thankfully, Activision has apparently had a change of heart; The Silver Lining will be released as a series of free downloadable episodes.
The first episode, entitled "What Is Decreed Must Be," will release on July 10. The game's overall story features King Graham trying to save his children from a curse. Along the way, he'll visit familiar places from previous games (the Land of the Green Isles appears to figure prominently in the first episode), as well as meet some new characters.
Phoenix Online Studios hasn't specified the release dates for subsequent episodes in the series beyond claiming they will hit "throughout 2010." That's great news for King's Quest fans; we're glad Phoenix and Activision were able to work out their differences.
