Have a look at this post:
They want to make more Tales but can't because Lucas Arts aren't interested.

i doubt it lucasarts started the whole monkey island franchise long ago when dos was i think the mainstay of a computer system till microsoft came along with the windows product line. i mean those of us that can remember that far back originally the only gaming system/console was the atari. then the atari broke off and started making computers. the atari 800 i forgot some of the other atari computer systems the had released. I just remember my first actual pc was an atari 800. then tandy got into the game and started making computers as well as the commodore64 coming out. forgive the history of the pc here lol. i think though since lucasarts gave license to telltale to make some more of the monkey island series i don't think that would limited them to just one or two games. it all comes down to telltale and the developers teaming up with lucasarts and pitching the idea for a season 2 and its storyline to lucasarts and see if they like the idea. thats just my theory on it but its more or less the way of how it would go outside of forum discusssion i would guess.

There's a difference, though. Back to the Future, Jurassic Park and the Walking Dead are all based on pretty well-known and wide-spread IPs, so they're trying to get as wide audience as possible. Monkey Island is a very niche IP, and there's no need to oversimplify things there... and you can't really make it much more wide-spread even if you make the game play itself.
So, even though I'm unhappy with BttF/JP myself (haven't played WD so can't say anything about it), I think it's a bit too early to discard TellTale as classic adventure game developers. Let's wait until King's Quest is released.

All true, however The Devil's Playhouse was arguably the beginning of the downward trail of Telltale putting difficulty on the shelf and that's not a well-known and wide-spread IPs trying to reach as wide audience as possible. It took a huge step back in both difficulty and interactivity from seasons 1 and 2 and used strong story and presentation to hide its lack of gameplay depth.

I'm not sure I fully agree with that. The reason I'm saying this is because Season 1 of S&M is just immensely, ridiculously easy. I would even say that it's as easy as Back to the Future. Even though there are, in fact, puzzles (unlike BttF) there and nobody tries to 'walk' you through the game, everything's just incredibly easy to figure out.
I do agree with the statement that Devil's Playhouse took a step backwards from Season 2, though, but only because Season 2 took a ridiculously huge step forwards in difficulty (to the point when sometimes it was just frustrating as hell... something like Sam & Max: Hit the Road probably ).
And even though I consider TDP to be between Season 1 and Season 2 in those terms, I do admit that it is pretty close to Season 1 on that scale (although I'd personally prefer the golden middle or closer to Season 2, but not as randomly difficult as Season 2). However, to me the originality of the episodes and situations is more than enough to make up for that - the whole thing with the cinema reels was very cool, Noir Sam part, and other stuff. And I think that's one of the things that was missing from BttF.

Lucasarts has an unnamed title for E3! Maybe it will be a Monkey Island title.

This could be a double edge sword. Because all the original creators are in TTG or in Double Fine. I HIGHLY doubt its a monkey island game, because if it is, it could be the return of

Actually, it's been confirmed that the unnamed title for E3 is a Star Wars game.

Any point in hoping for a surprise announcement at E3 from Telltale?

I hope they get around to a Monkey Island sequel, after King's Quest!

I worry that it's only a matter of time until these forums get put into the archive section.

I just hope that TTG at least gets in contact with them.. We've got some pretty loyal fans around here..
