Despite months of rumors, Sam & Max 2 won't be happening after all.
In the last couple of months, rumors on the possible resurrection of LucasArts' Sam & Max: Freelance Police grew in gaming circles. The rumors mentioned a new, mysterious games publisher called Bad Brain that was willing to raise money in order to buy the rights to an unnamed adventure game from LucasArts. Wolfgang Kierdorf, Bad Brain's CEO, stated that "yes, we are talking to LucasArts about a game that might involve animals, but that's all folks!", successfully gaining the attention of the games press at large. Many thought this was too good to be true. Unfortunately, they were proven right, as Bad Brain today brings the news that negotiations between them and LucasArts over the rights to Sam & Max 2 have been discontinued. "We tried everything to bring you the game you all wanted. But it seems all hope has gone. They broke off negotiations. But you truly have to believe that it wasn't our fault and it sure wasn't the money. We just don't know and they don't tell", is the message found on Bad Brain's website.
A pity. It was a slim hope for those who thought all those old Lucasarts games were bad-ass and were wanting to see the titles continue.
