Rumour: New Bone in Spring

posted by Guybrush Threepwood on - last edited - Viewed by 1K users
Check out the news story over at mixnmojo for this interesting bit of news that Joystiq have picked up. "Look for a new Bone videogame to be released in the spring." states Publisher Weekly's website. As Jason points out in the article, it's surprising that we haven't heard anything from Telltale about this third game. That could either lead us to conclude that the license is now with a new company, or it is a mistake on Publisher Weekly's part.

    If it was a mistake, it's unlikely Jeff Smith would have reprinted it on the homepage of boneville.com

    Dan Connors has said recently (though I can't dig up a link, unfortunately) that Telltale have some unannounced projects in the works, wouldn't it be lovely if one of them was the 3rd Bone installment?

    I don't believe production has started on Sam & Max season 3 yet and Strongbad's wrapped up, so all those non-Wallace & Gromit staffers must have been doing something lately.
  • This would be awesome, if true, but I still have a bit of a hard time believing it. Maybe they mean to say that Out from Boneville and The Great Cowrace are going to get ported to the 360 or Wii or something?

    But yeah, finishing the series would be great. I wonder what the Telltale staff has to say about it.
  • Rest of the series, one episode. BONE: The Game. This Spring. Telltale Games Oregon Branch. Challenge Everything.


    Heard it here first.

    I just played through Out from Boneville and The Great Cow Race again yesterday.image

    Even with all that Telltale's improved upon in their episodes since then, they're still excellent games. :)

    If there is a new Bone game, I hope it's a continuation of Telltale's series. I was really excited to play new episodes whenever they came out back in 2005. They seemed to be making leaps and bounds between installments. I miss them. :(
  • Well, if it is true, it won't be made by Telltale, it might be, but it might not, I don't know if it'll be the same because Telltale made the first, the only and the greatest Bone games ever.
  • Rumours crushed! Not true, according to Jeff Smith. At least, he says so in the comments on his blog: http://www.boneville.com/2009/03/11/pw-bestselling-comics-in-march-2009/#comments

    You know, I don’t know what the video game thing is all about. There is no new Bone video game in the works. I think it may be refering to something Scholastic is planing for its website - - a little flash game, maybe, or it could just be an internet rumor that made it onto the list!
