Jim Ward joins Telltale 01 Apr, 2008, 13:21 / 10 comments

We all remember when Jim Ward left his position as President of LucasArts. Some people asked: what's the next step? What is Ward going to do next?

Today we recieved our answer: our source at Telltale games, who I shall refer to simply as "Jake," gave us the news that the company has a new president.

Already big changes have occured, such as the cancellation of Sam & Max (no last episode, then) and the purchase of the Star Trek lisence.

Still no word on who will replace Jim Ward at LucasArts, but I have a feeling we may hear about that later on today...

    That's not funny. Too many bad memories. I'm going to go cry in my bed now while muttering 'March oh-four' over and over again...

    If I had a buck for every time someone offered to marry me, I'd have enough money to buy back the rights for Monkey Island LOL!

    Anyone got a buck?

    I still think "Monkey Island 5" was the best and most convincing one.
