The best I can give you for TSL is this, from one of the directors:

Nice, but how long ago was that said?

A statement that vague isn't proof that anything is actually being done--or not being done, as the case may be. Forgive my cynicism, but I'll believe the results when I see them.

If it was an actual recent forum post, from someone like Katie, I'd be more inclined to believe it.  (Though that would be greatly overshadowed by my joy in knowing that she was still around.)  A supposed "quote" from "one of the directors" though, isn't enough to convince me.

I don't know; I would take that as a sign that nothing is being done. That's pretty much how I would interpret "sleeping," anyway. Vague though it may be. Which is fine; that's pretty much what Katie said the last time she responded.
The recent news also throws more monkey wrenches into the works. Activision still owns the King's Quest IP, afaik, and soon Microsoft will. This whole IP licensing deal will probably have to be blessed by Microsoft when that goes through just like it had to be blessed by Vivendi when they bought Activision.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

By the way Snabbott, good to see you again after all these years. :) Thank you for the response.

I wouldn't be surprised if this last chapter might get the go ahead to be finished now that Microsoft has bought Activision who currently owns the rights to the Kings Quest Series.  I just saw a interview with Phil Spencer from Xbox saying he wants to see games from his childhood come back and Kings Quest was mentioned.

Speaking with The Washington Post, Spencer said, ‘We’re hoping that we’ll be able to work with them when the deal closes to make sure we have resources to work on franchises that I love from my childhood, and that the teams really want to get.

‘I’m looking forward to these conversations. I really think it’s about adding resources and increasing capability.’

This means fans could see the likes of Crash Bandicoot, Spyro The Dragon, and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater come back. Spencer even namedrops Guitar Hero and King’s Quest as examples of long dormant franchises.

‘I was looking at the IP list, I mean, let’s go!’, said Spencer, while reminiscing over favourite games of his youth. ‘King’s Quest, Guitar Hero… I should know this but I think they got Hexen’.

Hmm. If anything, it might make things more complicated, if they're actually looking to make money off of King's Quest again. Interesting that it got called out specifically.

Me, I'm wondering if it means we're getting a second season of the Reboot from TOG eventually or if we're starting over again in a new continuity or going back to the original classic canon.

All very good questions. I haven't finished TOG's King's Quest, so I don't know where the story left off. My guess is there would be a soft reboot of sorts, picking up somewhere after KQ4 (so the whole family is back together) and branching off to new adventures from there.

Is phenoix using covid-19 panademic as an excuse not to complete chapter 5 or could they done it back in 2013 right after chapter 4? 🤦💁

Note that I'm not making any claims about if/when Episode 5 will be released, though I hope it will. I've played through what has been developed so far, and I like what I've seen. It needs a LOT of work still, though.

Shalkar, we know you're impatiently waiting on Episode 5. I don't think you realize how much effort is required for the few people on the team (who all have actual jobs so they can have nice things like food, shelter, and clothing). Good help is hard to find, especially for free.

Please be nice. Don't make me summon an admin to ban you again.

So since you are a moderator, do you have an idea when there will be a release update? What about the news on the front page? That hasn't been updated since Janurary 2019 right?

They said that the project's sleeping but not cancelled yet. That's probably all the update we're going to get the next few years lol, but I hope not.

Unfortunately, I do not have any information about if or when the project will be completed. :-\ I really hope it will, though!
