Al Lowe, beloved creator of Leisure Suit Larry and lead designer of all previous Larry games, today with the permission of Sierra's legal department released this "grammatically challenged" statement on his website:
"Currently, I am in the process of negotiations with Vivendi Universal Games and my involvement with the next installment of the Leisure Suit Larry. Once we have reached an agreement I will be able to comment more on my involvement."
Al promises to post the latest information regarding his involvement on his LSL8 news page. When that news breaks, you can be sure you'll hear about it here.
