I hope so too! I'm with everyone one the "full-steam ahead" with staff of kings. Well, development started around spring 2008, and since they already had the storyline, pre production material, concept, and engine from the force unleashed already finished so i would say it's definitely releasing in 2009, any other delay from that would be far too cost effective to the team, and the full cycle of development for big games is usually under a year, so things are definitely looking up for staff of kings.
Plus "Rob MacGregor" who is doing the novelisation of the game said it's planning on releasing late 2009. I'm sure lucasarts has met their final deadline.
Things are looking up. It's funny how Lucas's low piority game of this year "LEGO Indiana Jones" beat "The Force Unleashed" lol. Not that I have anything agaist TFU (i do own it) but will at least show them to not underestimate their excellent Indiana Jones franchise over there extremely overdone Star Wars franchise, which must have at least a billion games available for it.
And seriously, Fracture? They published that and yet they put that piority over an Indiana Jones game? Next time they should just make a developer make an Indiana Jones game, instead of them trying to create it in-house. At least the others would be able to meet there deadlines e.g. Emperors Tomb.
Sorry for that rant. I just care a lot about Dr. Jones
