One of the most classic PC gaming series of all time is returning once more — this time with its original boss commanding the deck. Ron Gilbert, creator of Monkey Island, formally announced the new game on April 1, knowing no one would believe him. Three days later, he confirmed it and reminded everyone he had said, seven years prior, that if he were to ever be involved with another game he would announce it on April Fools Day. He was true to his word, and apparently still has the same sense of humor.
According to a recent post on his personal blog to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Monkey Island series, Ron Gilbert would love to get his hands on the adventure franchise. The ex-LucasArts developer explained how he had always wanted to create a third game in a trilogy for Monkey Island and that for that to happen, Disney would have to be willing to sell the rights to him.
