Tales of Monkey Island may come to Xbox Live

Dave Grossman, design director for Telltale Games, has said that Tales of Monkey Island may eventually land on Xbox Live Arcade once the PC and WiiWare versions are out the door.

“We didn’t so much decide not to put it on Xbox Live Arcade as we decided not to put it on XBLA now,” Grossman told Eurogamer. “Normally what we do is PC and one of the other platforms, and we’ve been bouncing back and forth between them.

“Yeah, I mean I wouldn’t rule it out. We might do that one later on.”

Grossman also said that he would like to see it on every platform possible and that includes PS3, Mac and Linux.

“We just haven’t gotten there yet,” he said. “Ultimately, we would like to be on every downloadable channel there is. We think that’s the perfect place for our stuff to be. It was just luck of the draw how the business relationships worked out and what chips were falling where.

“And we have to get our engine working on the [PS3], which is quite a bit of work, so we only want to do one at a time.

“We’ll get there [Mac, Linux], but it’s a matter of how and when and can we actually afford to do it.”

The first episode , Launch of the Screaming Narwhal, lands on PC  July 7 with the WiiWare version still to be determined.
