Lucasarts: "we are considering all of our options"

"If you're wondering about Indiana Jones or any other LucasFilm properties, by the way, wonder no more: according to an EA spokesperson, this agreement is for Star Wars only.
LucasFilm confirmed that. "Regarding the other titles, no titles are being announced at this time but we are considering all of our options," a LucasFilm spokesperson told Kotaku. "The deal with EA is for the Star Wars franchise only." "

Well, Telltale, THIS is the right moment to ask rights, I think.
But my fear is: is it the right moment FOR YOU?

  • If they do sell Monkey Island, I'd rather it go to Ron Gilbert than anyone else. It's his baby, and nobody would treat it better than him.

    Monkey Island, huh.

    If they can get Indiana Jones for a new full fledged adventure game, the first after FoA, how cool would that be.

    Unfortunately, as Dan has put it, that's "not a huge focus for Telltale right now". But who, I ask you, who else could pull that off satisfactorily?

    I don't see ONE other company around which could. Not one.

    I'd say Double Fine, but they wouldn't be interested either...

    Maybe some German company like Daedalic Entertainment?

  • That is just PR speak for.. "meh"

    Ah well, Animation Arts did well with "Lost Horizon" and King Art did well with "The Book of Unwritten Tales"... Daedalic seems to be too busy anyway, but there ARE options.

    Still, I'm dying for Tales 2, so DO THAT TELLTALE, GORRAM IT!!!!

    Daedalic doing MI or Indy...


    ... let me think about that. For a while. :cool:

    Not sure Ms. Kesterton would be up to it. But I might be wrong and we might still never find out.

    The Firefly reference kinda makes your post... doubly depressing :(

  • Maybe I should have typed "Season 2" for it to work both ways...

  • I think telltale should secretly fund themselves a serious amount of dough for buying the Monkey Island rights to finish it.

  • I read that Disney have renewed the license for Maniac Mansion, but that could just be them covering their butts in case someone else wanted to do something with it. At the moment, things are looking pretty grim for the old adventure IPs. We can only hope that someone will snatch up the rights to MI and MM form Disney, maybe even Ronzo himself, Telltale don't seem interested in doing straight adventure games anymore :(
