Speaking at Wilfrid Laurier University in Ontario, Canada, Maxis co-founder Jeff Braun confirmed involvement in an upcoming Oddworld sequel.
"They're such a talented group of people," he said of the series' creator, Oddworld Inhabitants, "and I really trust their ability to create compelling content."
This would be the first game since 2005 Xbox title, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, but don't go trying to pre-order the game just yet. Braun admits the game may not ship for "years." I'd be happy if the game ships at all; I certainly miss the quirky sensibilities of Oddworld Inhabitants, and I'd love to see what they could do with next-gen hardware.
