Is Wikipedia accurate?

The wikipedia page for King's Quest claims that the game will be called "Kingdom of Sorrow" and take place before the events of the original King's Quest, featuring Sir Graham's adventures before he got the crown.

There's no citation and I haven't seen anything from TTG about this. Add in the fact that there's already a book called "Kingdom of Sorrow" and it makes me a bit suspicious. Does anybody knows anything that can confirm or deny this?

    Didn't know IA had that project. That seems exceedingly likely, with perhaps a bit of TTG's irritatingly vague "reboot" statement supplying the "prequel" aspect.

    King's Quest: Kingdom of Sorrow

    King's Quest: Kingdom of Sorrow is the current working title of the first official KQ game planned for release by Telltale Games in 2011. It is intended to be a 3D adventure which retells the story of young Graham before he became king of Daventry, and is therefore a prequel to the existing series. It is expected to consist of four episodes, the first of which is intended for release in October 2011.
    I don't think I've read this info anywhere. Sequel? 2011? October? Also, FOUR episodes? Where did that information come from?

    Until a definite source is found - and the "references" are interestingly entirely lacking from the quoted part - I'd say treat this as pure rumour with a 90% chance of being absolute rubbish. Wait for E3 and see...
  • Hah. Completely incorrect.
  • I've edited the page now, since I've become more and more convinced that whoever wrote that was sorely mistaken. Now it just says they're working on a KQ game to be released late this year.
  • Rubbish indeed! Lol
  • Poisonous misinformation. :eek:
  • That's all crap. We don't know anything about Telltale's King's Quest except it exists.

    Also, I'm guessing it'll be a 2012 release. Telltale's pretty booked for 2011 already.

    I better go add that to the wikipedia entry!


    Thats the problem with the internet. People speculatate and then someone reads/misreads and think it is good info.

    I thought when TTG announced King's Quest, they said it was part of their 2011 lineup. I might try to track down that tweet.

    Edit: Tracked it down, and I was mistaken, they just say that it's "in the pipeline."
