The Oddworld site has a new interview posted with Mr. Lanning on the latest Oddworld game. Here is the link:

2. How does the next game fit into the Oddworld Quintology? What happened to the original plan of the Oddworld Quintology, and why didn't OWI just continue the previously announced plans to make Munch's Exoddus?


LL: The next game does take place on the Oddworld landscape, but it is not part of the Quintology. It is happening in the same mythos timeline as the Quintology unfolds, but it focuses on different characters with different issues and different play styles. We chose to build an entirely new engine, we chose to create a new cast, we had many new members on the team, and we wanted a clean slate to create something great that would maximize our studios capability while allowing us more creative freedom in the meantime. If we chose to do Munch or Abe again at this point, it would have been more narrowing for us on the creative front and would have labeled us the "Abe and Munch company", which we are not. We are much more than that. So we took the opportunity to experiment with new play mechanics and play styles on this next title. The Oddworld signature is all over this game but we are also giving birth to something new and innovative in a market that is flooded with sequels and licenses. Abe and Munch and the Quintology will be back, in the meantime we have something new up our sleeve.
