IGN proposes Monkey Island to Disney
Disney Games has recently adopted a new gaming philosophy which allows indie game developers to use Disney's intellectual property as reported by IGN in this piece published a few days ago.
"An indie storyteller, a creative could work on another property within the Disney and Pixar collection of IP in a different way," Priore said. "Those smaller indie kind of experiences that are more personal... I think those are opportunities too."
They also interviewed Luigi Priore, VP of Disney & Pixar Games and Sean Shoptaw, SVP of Walt Disney Games in a more recent article where they spoke about the new game philosophy and the recently announced Pirates of the Caribbean expansion for the game Sea of Thieves by Rare. During the interview IGN pitched the idea of a Monkey Island expansion to Rare's game which Sean seemed open to the suggestion and mentioned how big Monkey Island fan he is:
“We don't want to speak for Rare,” says Shoptaw, “but I will say I'm a huge Monkey Island fan as well. So I like where your imagination has gone. Generally speaking, yeah, look, I think that that's exactly the point: we want creative ideas. We want to think about things that maybe haven't been thought of before. At least ask the question, right? We can always say no.
