No, this isn't a holdover from April Fools' Day, the creator of the classic Monkey Island series Ron Gilbert has announced that he's working on a follow-up to Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge, and it's coming this year...!

But unfortunately, that's about all we know so far. Platforms haven't been announced, so Return to Monkey Island could be a PC exclusive (at least at launch). There's reason to be hopeful though, as the developer is Gilbert's Terrible Toybox studio which previously launched Thimbleweed Park on Xbox, so hopefully Monkey Island gets the same treatment.

We'll keep a close eye out for more details on this one, but in the meantime, you can watch the trailer above.

Announcing Return to Monkey Island, the long-awaited follow-up to the legendary Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge by Ron Gilbert's Terrible Toybox in collaboration with Devolver Digital and Lucasfilm Games, coming 2022.
