licenses to any future interested parties or accept only outlandish amounts of money to license or sell the series
Did Telltale originally offer Activision all kinds of outlandish money to use the Sierra ips?

-Develop a new KQ or SQ or QFG game internally, and have it turn out to have less to do with the original games than Mask of Eternity did.
-Farm out the classic Sierra series to a company made up largely of Sierra's former rivals, people who generally looked down upon Sierra's games....Oh wait.
Ok, 2 was attempted by Vivendi (and may have had bits of 1 as the idea, zelda style cutesy action game?).
1 may have occured under Activision and Silicon Knights. No one knows for sure.
3. Depends on who you talk to, about Telltale. There are alot of rumors, opinions, gossip, and accusations, and few verified facts. But not everyone connected to Telltale is necessarily the same. Alot of 'words put into mouths' has occured.
