Η ελπίδα πεθαίνει τελευταία (αν και φοβάμαι μήπως βγάλουν κανα φρικτό arcade όπως έγινε με το τελευταίο "Larry") ....Monkey Island 5 is currently not in production, at least that's what LucasArts says. However, former PR manager, Tom Sarris, has confirmed on several occasions that there definitely will be a Monkey Island 5 sometime in the future.
- On behalf of WMI, Marek of Adventure Gamers fame, was kind enough to ask Tom Sarris a few questions at E3, May 2002.
Is it possible that we will see a Monkey Island 5 in the future or have you definitely closed the book on that franchise?
They are definitely going to make Monkey Island 5 since it is their most popular franchise. However, we shouldn't expect it in the near future.
- The Mixnmojo crew had the chance to interview Simon Jeffrey, president of LucasArts, while attending E3, May 2002.
And what about a new Monkey Island game? Are you guys interested in doing that still?
At some point in the future, there will undoubtedly be more Monkey Island games. No doubt about that.
- PC Zone interviewed Tom Sarris and again he assured us that Monkey Island 5 will definitely be made. Here is a snippet:
Are there any other popular franchises that LucasArts will re-visit?
There'll definitely be another Monkey Island game. You've seen four incredibly well-done versions of Monkey Island, and there's an immense amount of stories that remain to be told within that series.
- In another interview with Computers and Video Games Tom Sarris answered the following question:
You've also got the Grim Fandango and Monkey Island adventure franchises. Will you be looking to resurrect those?
I'd say so. I'd say that they're extremely viable properties for us to tap into in the future, in the same way that we're doing with Sam & Max. There's no reason why we can't adapt those to another generation of games players. I think there are stories that still remain to be told within Monkey Island and Grim Fandango.

Τα πρώτα 2 ήταν ανεπανάληπτα. Μετά έφυγε ο Ron Gilbert ( ) και ήταν αναμενόμενο να πέσει πολύ η ποιότητα του παιχνιδιού, κυρίως όσον αφορά το φοβερό χιούμορ με το οποίο ήταν εμπλουτισμένα τα δύο πρώτα διαμάντια. Το 3 δεν μπορώ να πώ οτι δεν το απόλαυσα, αλλα το 4 με ψιλοαπογοήτευσε. Καλό παιχνίδι μεν , ωραίοι γρίφοι, χαρούμενα γραφικά αλλα για Monkey Island μου φάνηκε λίγο. Πάντως θα το τερματίσω άλλη μια φορά στο κοντινό μέλλον μπας και αλλάξω γνώμη
