As you may remember, the new and downsized E3 is imminent...this week, in fact, and while certain publishers are taking a pass on the expo's successor (or just plain making their own damn event, in the case of Insecticide's publisher Gamecock), the majority of the heavy hitters will still be there.
As the venerable "Incognito79" notes in the forums, Sierra has issued a list of games they'll be displaying, including a conspicuous "To Be Announced" title. As you know, Sierra/Vivendi is the publisher of Double Fine's new game. Maybe it's wishful thinking, but could it be?
In any event, we should at least be hearing stuff about some of our other games this week. Insecticide for sure. Maybe Ubisoft will finally re-announce CSI and set us straight on a release date. And E3 is as good a time as any for LucasArts to rip the duct tape from their mouths about the new Indiana Jones, which has literally been nowhere to be seen since E3 2006. Time will tell!
Update: Well, the expo's over and there was no Double Fine presence at all. But hey, it can't be too many more years, right? Also, while CSI: Hard Evidence wasn't mentioned by Ubisoft at the event either, Emily at Telltale does offer some comfort.
