Holy crap it's actually happening: a new Monkey Island game has just been announced. It's being developed by Ron Gilbert's Terrible Toybox, and the man himself is spearheading both game design and writing alongside Dave Grossman. It's being published by Devolver Digital, and it's aiming for a 2022 release. Wow!

Great news for fans of point and click adventures, but unfortunately, no platforms have been confirmed. No doubt Return to Monkey Island will be a PC title first and foremost, but we're hoping for a PlayStation port. Hey, now that we think about it, it would be great if we could get the classic Monkey Island games on modern PlayStation consoles as well β€” maybe this newly revealed sequel will kick things into gear?
