Is Lucasfilm anticipating a new Maniac Mansion after the success of Return to Monkey Island?

This week it was released Return to Monkey Island, a new installment of Lucasfilm’s iconic graphic adventure saga. The reception this game has had has been very positive, with a average score of 83-89 on Metacritic and a good amount of reviews on Steam that place it as a magnificent return for Guybrush Threepwood and company.

Many of those involved in the project have publicly celebrated the success of Return to Monkey Islandbut one in particular has caught the attention of the community: it is the Craig Derrickexecutive producer of Lucasfilm Games, who has raised the alarm about a possible return of Maniac Mansion.

In a tweet posted on your personal account, Derrick has celebrated the good reception new Monkey Island and is proud to have been able to make it happen from his role as executive producer. Also, in the last message of his chain of tweet drop that “is waiting for the time to return to the mansion”. Is it a reference to the classic graphic adventure that Ron Gilbert himself launched with Gary Winnick in 1987? For the community, everything seems to indicate that it is, especially because in August he sent a very similar message.

Our opinion of Return to Monkey Island
