Daily Radar has an article up about the Future of LucasArts. In it it gives a little hint about a possible Grim Fandango 2!
Although LucasArts, a privately held company, will not release sales figures, a spokesperson expressed confidence in the history and future of LucasArt's original titles. "The response to the Monkey Island series has been phenomenal," he said. "[And] Grim Fandango met domestic expectations and exceeded them worldwide.”
Will a Grim Fandango sequel be one of those titles? Currently there is no sequel to the critically acclaimed adventure game in the works. "There are still some great stories to be told," the spokesperson said about the universe. "While there are no specific plans at this point to develop a sequel to Grim Fandango, the ideas behind the story present a lot of possibilities for the future.”
This sounds VERY promising! Remember they said that there was no Monkey Island sequel in the works a couple of days before Escape from Monkey Island was announced. Looks like our petition worked! I'm bringing out the fine champagne - this is a means for celebration.
