One of the most iconic point-and-click adventure games of all time returns in 2022.
Return to Monkey Island, a new entry in the log in progress Monkey Island series by original creator Ron Gilbert, has been announced. Gilbert left Lucasfilm Games after the 1991 release of Monkey Island 2: Dead Men Tell No Tales, but is credited with working on the 2009 Tales of Monkey Island by Telltale Games.

Gilbert is back alongside Monkey Island series veteran Dave Grossman as one of the key creative minds behind the upcoming title. Michael Land, Peter McConnell and Clint Bajakian, other major names who have worked on the franchise in the past, are also back according to the short reveal trailer (above).
The game is currently in development by Gilbert’s development studio, Terrible Toybox, in conjunction with Disney’s Developer Digital and Lucasfilm Games. Little is known about Return to Monkey Island aside from the fact that – as you might have guessed – it appears to involve a return to Monkey Island. It also appears that Return is a “sequel” to the first two entries in the series.
If I ever get around to making another Monkey Island I will announce it on April 1st.

Gilbert has been trying to get the rights to Monkey Island from Lucasfilm Games for years, and it seems he’s finally succeeded.
It’s been a long time since I’ve enjoyed a classic point-and-click adventure title, but the Monkey Island series is special to me. It’s one of the first video games I ever played, and I credit it for encouraging my interest in pirates and boats as a kid. I will also never forget the puzzle with the giant cotton swab and the concrete monkey head or the stupid magnetic compass.
More details on Return to Monkey Island will likely be announced in the coming months. It’s unclear when the game will be released in 2022 or what platforms it will appear on.
