Double Fine title to be announced soon? 08 Jul, 2007, 21:11 / 9 comments

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.

    Bit of a hope, but if everyone in the world thinks just one word, 'Psychonauts', at exactly the moment E3 starts, maybe Tim will start to glow blue, fly, and can magically conjure a sequel out of thin air. And defeat the Master.

    lol, I knew what you were talking about as soon as you said 'think one word'.

    Personally, I'm hoping they do something original. No point putting all your eggs in the one basket.

    Whether or not Double Fine wants to do a Psychonauts sequel, I doubt they're in a position to.

    Just the news of a potential announcement made me bust out the game and play it again. I would buy the entire series if it went to 10 games.

    Why would you want a Psychonauts sequel? Or a Grim Fandango sequel, for that matter...

    Grim Fandango and Psychonauts aren't even close, particularly in the way they leave room for sequels.

    I don't like to learn a new story or meet new characters. Duh

    At the new E3, Tim will be announcing that they've released a small brown bird from a cake tray in their office...
