Sam & Max Sequel Axed

LucasArts has posted the announcement of cancellation of Sam & Max Freelance Police, planned as a sequel to Sam & Max Hit the Road, their classic adventure game (thanks Quboid). Word is:

"After careful evaluation of current market place realities and underlying economic considerations, we've decided that this was not the appropriate time to launch a graphic adventure on the PC" says Mike Nelson, Acting General Manager and VP of Finance and Operations. There is currently no plan to reduce staff.

Not all the developers are small companies anymore. The adventure company made quite a bit from making Syberia, and Funcom has grown into a much bigger company because of TLJ and AO.

Point is, just because they aren't Ubi Soft, EA or LA, doesn't mean that adventure games are dead.

I have seen people say a genre is dead for a long time, but games like TLJ and Syberia still were high on the sales chart list when they came out.

I tried to dig up the sales chart from the 2 but NPD's site is different then it used to be, probably have to register.
