    I'm pretty positive Telltale will be releasing a new Sam & Max season in the future. There was a lot of banter about a possible Sam & Max: Season Four in the dialog of Poker Night 2.

    It would be really mean to put those conversations in there if they weren't planning on releasing a fourth season of Sam & Max.

    Remember, Telltale only has the Sam & Max license for a set number of years before it reverts back to Steve Purcell due to disuse (like what happened with LucasArts during the Freelance Police fiasco). The fact that they're interested in keeping the license speaks volumes.

    In some way, Telltale seems to be following LEC's steps. They still make adventure games, they do with another approach, but they still do. So this is not the point. The problem here is they seem to have forgotten their minor licenses which we all love and were the reason why we started supporting them. They put'em aside in favor of more economically convenient licenses and it doesn't look like they're going to come back to smaller stuff.

    Man, I hear you on that Sam and Max thing. It actually makes PN2 kind of bittersweet.

    I'd been dying since 2010 for anything new, so I'm super grateful for some more Freelance Police. But at the same time, it's kind of sad to have to say goodbye all over again, since it's unlikely Telltale would move away from their AAA licenses anytime soon. I mean, why would they?

    Not to mention the fact that Sam was grouped with what seems like a random mishmash of currently very popular characters kind of rubs salt in that wound, even if one is from my all-time favorite show.
